I thought the execution of ex-president Saddam Hussein was rather archaic. When I heard the news on the radio a few days ago, I thought he was going to be either shot by a brigade of gunman or electrocuted when reports say “Saddam is going to be hanged”. Of course, I didn’t realize they meant it literally.

An execution is an execution but doing the hang man’s dance isn’t exactly what I had expected. None-the-less, it’s over. By dying or imprisonment doesn’t mean you’ve made amends to atrocities you’ve manhandled. No such punishment is fit for anyone but an eye for an eye buries the hatchet somewhat and gives closing to the ones affected.
