    Somehow this has more of a European ring to it, than Iraqi...

    It's why I said it sounded more European than Iraqi. The Telegraph is conservative, but still European. I wonder about this piece.

    If the Sunnis in question don't represent a significant part of the insurgency, no way this deal should be pulled off.

    This is dumb. I say put him into a chipper feet first so he can experience some of what he dished out to who knows how many.

    The Sunni's acted like children and screwed themselves. They deserve what they got. Perhaps next time they'll try to put a little more mature thought into the matter.

    No way Saddam should be allowed to live. No way.

    Well, we could send him to Abu Ghraib and let those former guards serve out their sentences as HIS guards. :bat:

    If all of you are for doing to him what he did to others, what makes you any better, why does that morally make it right? Wouldn't someone be just as justified if they came along and then did it to you?

    I think that Saddam will probably be killed. Talibani is running a newly elected government, still not quite a firm one either. I doubt he would go against the mass opinion of his constituents and not kill Saddam. There might be a new anti-Talibani insurgency if he did make the deal.
