Go On Then, Call Me A Softy

The impending execution of Saddam Hussein, a vicious and inexcusible thug who inflicted untold misery on thousands, whose sadism would turn the stomach of any civilised person, leaves me feeling defiled. To hang him, in cold blood, as he lies at our mercy, diminishes us all. Prison without prospect of release, certainly. But we are about to allow him the dignity and respect in death that he never deserved in life. It's a mistake, and it's immoral.

That's my five penn'orth.
