according to an article in the l.a.times.com saddam should have been studied, not executed. accordingly, he would have provided valuable research information, on how someone who could turn out to be that evil and so effective in persuading people to follow him. that that kind of information is vital in our society's future, answering such questions as are these indiviaduals truly unusual, what can we do to prevent them from gaining power and if we can change our political institutions to make it harder for someone like hitler to take over.

You judge wrong. A live Saddam Hussain never came out openly with the issue of WMDs, how do you expect he would have divulged any bit of information valuable to the world and its peace. Moreover, he went away with billions of dinars which are today in the hands of terrorists and his Baath party. How do you claim he would have been valuable to the society's future ?

you judged me wrong. it is not i who said that. i said that i read that in l.a.times online. although i believe information regarding him, willingly given by him or not, is important for our society's future. if we only know why he turned out that way, we may in the future, avert certain disasters by being able to pinpoint future sadams and hitlers, or more importantly, be able to avoid making one. tell me, dont we have certain institutions in which we study crazy people?

Needless to further explore on the possibility. Let us just pray that there will not be another bloodshed in Iraq due to this hanging. Saddam has fanatic followers and there is possibility more clashes there.
