Saddam's execution

The media reports that Saddam Hussein is going to be hanged in a few hours. I still think this is a strong political bluff by to pressure the Sunni circles to give up their position (as part of new Bush strategy in Iraq).

But if American allow the execution to be carried on, this will be one of the most stupid mistakes of them in Iraq. What would be solved with his execution? Why Americans let Saddam become a martyre in the Sunni world? This will only streghen his position as a herioc leader.

Saddam should be taken to court rooms over and over for years to answer thousands of his atrocities. By such a quick sentence and execution, he'll be relieved from his shameful life. Saddam should get a life sentence and be forced to live in prison to finally see a new generation of Iraqi who won't give a damn about him. I am against death penalty, even for monster like Saddam.
