Justice For Saddam Hussein
Regardless of how you feel about the death penalty, it is difficult to argue with today's execution of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. The number of Iraqis who were killed at the order of the tyrannical ruler number in the hundreds of thousands. Sadly, Hussein had supporters to the very end who crowded into the streets to protest his execution. The executioners, shown in the AP photo above, hide their own identities to protect themselves from the assassins who freely roam the streets of Baghdad. At least 31 people were killed today when a bomb exploded in the middle of a fish market hours after Hussein's execution. His death offers little hope the violence in Iraq will end anytime soon.
