I have no real views on Saddam Hussein. I think the execution, right or wrong, was far too rushed. Is Iraq any better off without him? Probably not. Saddam brought corrupt order. With him gone, its still corrupt but now in complete disorder. I know I'd rather live in a country afraid of a man living in a big gold house somewhere else, than being afraid of my neighber killing me.

A video tribute to Saddam... possibly tongue in cheek
A pro execution video I found on youtube while searching for the actual news footage. Please note the music in the background: its Iron Maiden's "Run to the Hills". The lyrics of which are as follows:
"White man came across the sea
He brought us pain and misery
He killed our tribes, he killed our creed
He took our game for his own need"
I just hope the person who made the video was deliberately being ironic.
