I certainly have no sympathy for Saddam Hussein. But he should not be executed for his crimes. No more and no less than any other human being.
Why, in any case, should anyone's monumental lack of respect for human life be even partly condoned through the state-organised termination of his?
One can only hope that further charges of crimes against humanity continue to be heard against Hussein, especially with regard to the chemical weapon attack on Kurds in 1988.
