When Saddam Swings...

No doubt, you will be able to tell a great deal about a person based on her or his reaction during the first few moments after Saddam swings like a pendulum in the Poe's pit.

It is arguable as to whether Saddam's murder will be good for America. Time will tell, but I'm leaning toward not.

Do you think W is pushing for a particular day to let him swing? If so, why? What do you think your reaction will be?
Q On the timing of Saddam Hussein's execution, noting that it's within 30 days, is there any communication with the U.S. government and pressure to make it sooner rather than later?

MR. STANZEL: That is a matter for the Iraqi people, and we are observers to that process. They are a sovereign government, and they will make their own decisions regarding carrying out that justice.

All right, thank you all very much.

I am sickened by the death watch we see on tv. I am against killing people for a crime. Saddam's death will most likely cause more violence over there if it is possible for that to happen. I think all of this is gruesome and disgusting. If they show his hanging on tv, I will not watch.

This will just give bush a new headline in his SOTU speech. Everyone will stand and clap. Has this war been worth that clapping? I think not.

Remember before the war started bush offered to let Saddam and his sons leave Iraq to stop the war from happening. If bush was so concerned about Saddam being punished, why would he have allowed him to just walk away?
