Wow...Saddam executed

December 30th, 2006 at 05:51 am

Wow I get up and the first thing I do is read my blogs here, just so happen I was reading a blogger's blog who frequently visits Roubini so I decided to check it out and found that Saddam was dead. I am in like shock I know he did terrible things but I almost feel really bad. At one point I was all for capitol punishment but then I was on a jury who had to first convict some one then determine his faith...it was the hardest decision in my life because I/we wanted to be absolutely sure. It was a teenager who was bullied in school who stole his grandparent's gun. The kids at the school had pressured him to fight so he was nervous everyone who testified stated he did not want to fight and he kept saying so. Anyhow the day of the fight he took the gun and told the kids he did not want to fight he shot the gun in the air and of course we know what goes up must come down but the point is I guess I am a little nervous about any retaliation, I guess I should not be worried

    I woke up this morning to the pictures of him after his death and people rejoicing in the streets. Though I'm no fan of his and I'm glad he's no longer an issue I'm sad. He was somebody's father, somebody's grandpa, somebody's friend, somebody's love. Yes, he was a tyrant but killing someone like that creates 40 more people who hate as much or more. I'm concerned about retalitiation, also.. I just find this to all be a very sad situation.

    To me, the bizarrre part was that this was a major world leader who was put to death. It wasn't some street punk who killed somebody robbing a convenience store. This was a player on the world stage who met with world leaders, led a country, fought wars, etc. How very strange for his life to end this way.

    It was not worth the lives of 3000 american soldiers and countless Iraqis. It was a war of choice--no celebrating here

    You need not worry about retaliation. Doing the right thing take courage sometimes, but the best part is that you are not alone. There are and will always be others who has, is, and will stand alongside you... doing the same. Some *cough* erm are fanatical enough to make sure that those who do the right thing are protected to do just that.

    Otherwise, if we let fear rule our lives and our hearts, there will never be true freedom. That's not something that at least I will allow to happen. Wink

    Oh, and as for Saddam's death and the war in Iraq, well, it's an ugly and unfortunate business that's for sure.
