    There has been talk about this on the radio that when he's executed, it should be on pay-per-view or something, with the money going straight to the military or a charity that supports the military and their families either financially or otherwise, or something related to the men and women who helped locate this scumbag.

    I think they may be on to something.

    What do you think?

    That seems a bit bizarre to me. I would not pay to see such a thing.

    Saddam is a punk, screw all that non sense about paying to watch this clown hang. I say just do it already. The whole world knows he was and still is a evil man so close the history books on him:whip:

    I think he should be executed, but I don't want to see it.

    I wouldnÂ’t want to see it either, unless maybe, someone I knew or loved was one of his victims. Then maybe, I donno.

    There was a poll about this on Neal Boortz's web site. First off, Saddam will be lucky to live through January. Unlike the U.S., convicted Iraqis only get ONE appeal. If the court does not find grounds, then the sentence is carried out. Second off, I wouldn't pay to see Saddam executed. However, I also don't have a problem with televising the event on Pay-Per-View, so long as it's OK with the Iraqis and the proceeds go to rebuilding the country. After all, this is their show, and as much as I'd like to donate the money to military causes, I think the Iraqis should have first dibs.

    Ditto. I'm not interested in seeing the execution, but I am interested in seeing that it is carried out.

    I would imagine that a great many Iraqis would be interested in witnessing this execution, just like many people in our country had an interest in witnessing Tim McVeigh's execution.

    Not interested myself. i think he should be taken behind a shed and hung. just get it over with. Its sad that anyone does anything worthy of death, but when they do it should just be taken care of.
