    OK guys, no slant on this either way - just a simple question.

    What is a worse punishment - being killed or facing a war crimes trial?

    I think the second one is a more suiting punishment because Saddam Hussein might have to face the families of his victims and the end result might be execution.

    I personally think his two sons got off easy.

    The end result will be execution.

    I agree, but does your answer mean you think the trial is better?

    What does it matter? Dead is dead.

    It matters a lot because of the reason I mentioned above. Hussein may not feel any remorse by being forced to answer for his actions or facing his victims, but he will have to sit through it knowing what the end result will be.

    Are you serious? What's worse- to be dead or to not be dead?

    Since torture is not involved here, OBVIOUSLY being alive is better. I'm sure Suddein's two murderous sons would rather be prancing around a courtroom thatn doing Satan's bidding in Hell.

    I personally could not care less whether they are dead or behind bars/in a courtroom. The fact that none of them are in power or able to inflict more pain and suffering on the people of Iraq and around the world is cause for celebration.

    Let Saddam THINK he is the President of Iraq:rolleyes: ... we all know different.

    It seems that way, huh?
    As long as capital punishment is an option in Iraq, Saddam remains the most viable candidate!!!!!

    It all depends on what you think the afterlife has in store for them.

    We're not talking about death vs. life in prison. He will end up dead no matter what happens in the trial. I just think the Iraquis deserve a chance to make him sweat first.

    Good point, but that's all about people's personal beliefs. When Saddam was captured, they gave up without a fight because he was afraid to die. If that's true, then I guess he didn't picture a pleasant afterlife for himself.
