Suitable, and Apt Punishment, for Saddam and his
[Return to Topics]

Old Sarge    Posted 12-14-2003 at 10:35:55       [Reply]  [Send Email]

Just my honest opinion, here. Rather than try him a civil court under the supervision of the World court, let's just organize a court made up entirely of, or at least a jury of, the women who have been for years abused and treated as chattel by him and his followers.

Miz Sarge and I agree that after a few weeks of them having him, IF he lasts that long, he will be praying to Allah to take him.

Remember our own US history in dealing with the women of our Native Americans. The Mountain men would do anything to escape the wrath of the women.

Now I'm not saying you wimmens are vicious or nuthin, just that you have methods of makin us males sometime wish we were somewheres else.

While he is waiting for his gooddays that arecoming, I think they should put him in a round pen, neked with about 6 bull calvesthat are about a week old, and each week put in a new batch. He should be in good spirts than when he should go to a court somewhere or be begging for some one to shoot him. coorse That would be too nice a way out for him.

I figure we should let his own people do to him what the Italians did to Mussolini when he was captured.

Hang him and cremate the body, then his ashes scattered over the sea. No gravesite to be a memorial or focus point for supporters. That's what they did with the nazi war criminals.

Maybe drown him in pig blood, deny him his virgins in muslim heaven.

It would have been best to have him quietly pass on , then after a time prove he is gone , I fear if he is alive there will be alway hope of getting him back and in power by his followers , dead thou he can be a rally point to advenage him ... a no win problem ... I guess alive and unharmed is best ...Keep your friends close and your enemies closer ....

You're on to something. While one side of me would like to see him drawn and quartered, another side sees a better punishment.
Rudolph Hess was locked up for life in Spandau prison. He was alone for many years after the other inmates left. He was not allowed to write memoirs, nor could anyone else try (some tried-the notes were confiscated).
Basically he became a non person. He did not become a rallying point for neo-nazis, and his story was never told. He was not a sympathetic figure, and did not become a martyr. It's something to consider.
Still like that idea of drawing and quartering though...

Hey, Brian. The story of Rudolf Hess is a fascinating one. I hadn't heard about him being not allowed to write a book. I can tell you that Albert Speer wrote "Spandau Diary" about his years there at Spandau. I know because I read it some years ago. He was there from 1946 to 1966. Even then, Hess would complain of ill health and was always being taken to the hospital. And yet he outlived all the others by a good many years.

The historian in me was bothered that we never heard his story (or ever heard the true story of the flight to Scotland), but I suppose I understand why they did it.

I kinda like the Ozzie Osborne thearoy but I feel the Iraquies should get to try and punish him. I bet they will have his head on a stick before sundown. I do find it interesting that on the AOL scoop with the photos it said that he was captured with out firing a shot. That is a gross under statement.

I don't think that going to extreme lengths to embarrass him would do anybody any good. I'm afraid some would see anything we do to him as apt retribution, while others would see it as an excuse to create more havoc.

Nothing would please me more than to remember that to some, this man was a hero, and treat him with dignity and respect despite his history, which I suspect they will, as criminals have always fared far better than they should while incarcerated.

Nothing will happen to him. Period. He will be locked up, generating a wave of sympathy and as a political prisoner he will create a target for the balance of his supporters who will stop at mothing to try and free him, which in return will expose them and we will eventually have them all.

But there will be a lot of ugliness in the mean time. I doubt that there will be any large scale acts but I *worry* about our soldiers over there until the 'hold-outs' are captured. The US needs to remain unbiased and keep a level head right now, bearing in mind that many of his supporters are currently citizens of the US. We are walking around with snakes in our pockets, so a victory dance at this point would be premature and well....downright stupid.

I thought you said they would run like scalded dogs. What you are saying now makes more sense. Anyone guilty of these type of crimes should be executed.

Cindi    Posted 12-14-2003 at 16:21:26       [Reply]  [No Email]
I was referring to the ones over there. I think they will be disconnected and lacking direction. I do worry about the ones over here though. Someone is running things over here while he's been hiding out over there.

Good idea, my son came up with a very good question, can't figure how to answer it. He says since Sadam's character and atrocities hasn't changed even while Reagan was buddies with him and Reagan knew it, so why are we suddenly bringing him to trial.? My son thinks someone has changed and it wasn't Sadam.

deadcarp    Posted 12-14-2003 at 15:59:02       [Reply]  [No Email]
your boy's partly right - everybody changes in 20 years and i'm not surprised he didn't fight. he might be lotsa things but he ain't dumb. if any 66-yr-old guy was caught by however-many enemy troops like that, the sensible thing would be to ask for a hand getting up the ladder. and maybe a shower/shave. btw, you'll notice he's still alive - say could you pass another pork chop? :)

Greg    Posted 12-15-2003 at 15:34:38       [Reply]  [No Email]
But wouldn't it have been cheaper
to arrest him when Reagan was having a buddy lunch with him, since he could have still been charged with the atrocities he did during that time? I figure 10 mil for a swat team and a few choppers back then, as apposed to 8 Billion + they spent so far now.

Come to think of it, Reagan would have to explain what he was doing there in the first place. It'd be sorta embarassing.

I learned one thing, don't ask a fellow american to help raise a kid based on truth. Lies
work better is the message I got here, but at least your honest.

What an unbelievable statement. Ditto what Ron/PA said below. How embarrassing it must be for you to be an American. Or should that be spelled Amerikan?

Ron/PA    Posted 12-14-2003 at 13:29:58       [Reply]  [No Email]
Maybe your son should try living under Saddam, perhaps he'd find it preferable to living under the tyrany of the likes of Reagan and Bush.
Just a thought.

Make him go live out the rast of life with the Ozzie Osborne family.
On a serious side there is no sutiable and apt punishment for someone like him. Bury him alive in the same hole they put his two deranged sons maybe?

Vic in Kenefick    Posted 12-14-2003 at 11:57:33       [Reply]  [No Email]
I am leaning towards giving him a gender change, adding store bought hooters, putting him in a dress and turning him loose in Afganastan with no identification. Oh and maybe fill his purse with fried pork skins. Then wait for the movie to come out.

Good grief, Sarge, you gone PC on us, too? Native Americans my arse. They're Indians. No, they're not Indians from India, but "Americans"???? The term "Native Americans" was probly invented by Jesse Jackson. I think we do those people a disservice by ascribing such a moniker to them.
For crying out loud, I'm a native American. Where the he11 else would I be a native of?

Regardless of what happens to him, I'm glad they drug him out of a hole like the rat he was. Showing him as the coward he really is. In the deck of cards he was the Ace in a Hole, rat anyway.

From talking to the Kuwaities when I was there I think it on just that they get some say in his demise.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. Wonder if Jack Ruby will get to him before a jury.

Gene SC    Posted 12-14-2003 at 12:16:41       [Reply]  [No Email]
I think when they're through interrogating him
and have ALL the info that he has to offer,
he should be turned over to the people of his
area in the middle east. All the people he has
killed and tormented for so long. and let
them "try" him and punish him in whatever way
that pleases them.

Wm. from NC    Posted 12-14-2003 at 18:22:18       [Reply]  [No Email]
Gene, I agree with you. He showed those people how to torture and kill. Now, let him feel the wrath of his victims. I will give him about 30 seconds, if he is turned over to them. They may want to keep him alive for much longer though, just to torture him more. Whatever he gets is well deserved.

the irony of all this is all the cash he had on him. Just think, if he had accepted to be exiled with no prosecution, he could have taken millions with him and be living very good right now. Imagine, $750,000 on you and hiding in a hole Armed too, but no resistance. what a damn coward
