Most civilized people would agree that Saddam Hussein is a convicted murderer and terrorist who has committed crimes against humanity. The real question, however, is whether he should be hanged by the neck until he is dead. Is that act of savagery not itself a crime against humanity. If we support state sponsored murder, are we not dehumanizing ourselves? Hussein could be securely incarcerated for the rest of his natural life. That would not serve vengeance but, in my view, it would serve justice.
SHOULD SADDAM HUSSEIN BE HANGED?
