Here's something I don't remember noticing in July: Saddam specifically asked not to be hanged like a common criminal.

"I advise you as an Iraqi, if you were in a circumstance in which you have to issue a death penalty, you have to remember that Saddam is a military man and in this case the verdict should be death by shooting not by hanging," [Saddam] told the judge.

Justice, thy name is the gallows.

Exactly. I was reading about that and just holding my breath - that he would swing.....

Actually, it reminds me of Herman Goering.

Hope his guards are keeping a sharp eye on him and he hasn't been developing a friendly relationship with any of them.

A “military man” my a$$. A dictator is no more a military man than a newspaper boy is a journalist.

“Justice, thy name is the gallows.” Exactly, hope they let his toes just barley touch the floor so it takes awhile for death to relieve his miserable existence.
