Breaking news on CNN Intl: U.S. officials: Hussein execution *UPDATED*

  1. U.S. officials: Hussein execution this weekend - CNN.com

    I don't want this thread to become a debate whether this is right or wrong...I thought it was just a very important news considering the threats that have been placed regarding his execution...
     
  2. Keep our troops in your thoughts. If this is true, they are in for a brutal few days.
     
  3. My first thought too, Roo.
     
  4. omg..are we gonna be affected here? more war?
     
  5. It is pretty much to be expected that attacks against our troops and also civilians will escalate due to this execution.
     
  6. The only thing I can say is... "ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
     
  7. Roo i sooooooo agree with u .. wish things go on smoothly ...
     
  8. totally agree!
     
  9. :yes: I agree... :sad:
     
  10. I've read that the US govt. is pressing for the hanging to take place right away, this weekend. The Iraqi officials wanted to put it off for a month or more. My only concern is for the troops and the innocent Iraqis put in harms way. Pray for them all.
     
  11. From what I understand, the execution must take place within 30 days...so it needs to be done by the end of January. Now, IDK if this is the US's way of starting the New Year off fresh and new...but, I'm not sure if the timing is so great!
     
  12. Agree with Roo 100%
     
  13. I just can't see this going well for the US. I think the number of deaths for troops is going to skyrocket in the upcoming months, not to mention Sunnis vs. Shiites relations. Not to mention innocent Iraqi citizens that are going to be in the wrong place at the wrong time during retaliations.


    He's a horrible horrible horrible man, but I can't see anything good coming out of his death.

    Ugh. what a mess.
     
  14. Hate to say it, but if it wasn't this particular event, there would just be another. Conditions are very hostile, but we all know that.
    At least the guy won't be using up anymore food or oxygen on the planet. Thats one good thing.....
    Also, they are doing a good job of confusing everyone as to when it will actually happen. This will hopefully curtail some violence.
     
  15. :yes: ITA

    It's scary to even think about it...
