Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler » The full video of Saddam’s execution

The following video came from a witness with a cellphone at Saddam’s hanging, so it is kinda jittery. But you can see the money shot quite well…

Saddam is saying something right before they drop
him.  Twenty points if you can tell us what he is saying…

Extra points if you can describe the execution you would have given Saddam.

Mine is below the fold. (Parents, watch your children)

I would have first given Saddam enough morphine to last about an hour, because at first I wouldn’t want him to really feel anything — just watch.

I would then slowly insert him feet first into a wood chipper, slowly grinding away at his feet and legs. It should go slow enough that just grinding him up to his groin takes about an hour. I would want him to see everything.

By the time it gets up to his groin, the morphine should be just wearing off. By now, I would want him to start feeling the pain — but not enough that he would pass out because of it. Feeding him at a rate of about a half-inch a minute, I figure by the time the chipper gets to the real vital organs, he would just about be feeling the full pain.

Once it is apparent that he has actually died from the effects of the chipper grinding his vitals, I would then just dump the rest of him into the chipper.

I figure the entire process should have taken about an hour and ten minutes tops.

How is THAT for a Liberal perspective?

    Hmm… I might go with the full Braveheart treatment.

    Stetch him out to where every joint has popped (and some have dislocated), then loose him. Hang him until he turns purple, then drop him down. Strap him down, disembowel him. Show him his entrails and other vittles. Then, when he’s gasping, electrocute him. By ramping the voltage up from 20 millvolts, to where he’s Cajun-style.

    I’m annoyed.

    I wasn’t in Afghanistan for Osama’s capture (since it hasn’t happened yet). And now, I’ve missed out on Saddam’s death.

    As important an event as this is to many Iraqis who lost family to this monster, I would of handled the execution much differently.

    I would of had it in a huge public arena like a soccer stadium, and invited as many people who lost family members as could fill the stadium.

    Of course, it would of been a security nightmare, but I think the victims and Iraq deserve more than a thuggish execution done in a secluded location.

    Never the less, I’m not about to shed a tear for Saddam. He’s dead, he can’t hurt anyone else, and that’s what matters the most.

    The should have hanged him in that town square where that statue of him was torn down.

    And DJ… I like your method. But there are much, much more painful ways to kill folks than that. However one probably shouldn’t go all-out on someone like Saddam… There are actually worse folks than him in the world, so I’d say you have it about right.

    But really, when it comes down to it, I almost think the best thing we could have done would be to force Saddam to work in a comedy club for the rest of his life.

    Think about some of the skits we could force him to do:

    “The Great Dictator comes out of the closet.”

    “Do you want any Whey with those Kurds?”

    “Saddam’s Predicament; Lots of oil, but no gerbils.”

    And then there is always the skits for Iraqi Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, AKA Baghdad Bob:

    “There are no American troops in Baghdad… Now with 50% more free, order now!”

    And the classic:

    “There are no gerbils in Saddam Hussein’s ass.”

    There are just some animals you must put down. Would I have actually done an execution as the one I described? No, not even for Saddam.

    In most cases, I am against the death penalty, but I am able to make exceptions for mass murderers or any crime involving a child.

    What would have been a just punishment for Saddam? Putting him in a stadium with the families of all of his victims and let them decide his fate.

    In 14th century Egypt, Shajar ad-Durr, the Hillary Clinton of her time, was beaten to death with shower shoes. That would have been another fitting demise for Saddam (or Hillary too, for that matter).

    I really don’t care to see the maggot die. I’m pleased as punch that Satan gets to check another one off his shopping list, but I think the euphoria is misplaced. We aren’t done in Iraq or A-stan, and whatever our beef with soDamn, his people had better reasons to speed him on his way to Allah. I would’ve taken him out to an isolated spot in the desert, made him dig his own hole, put two behind his ear, let the body fall in, cover it up, and walk away. Case closed. I think a “who’s next?” attitude instead of celebration sends a better message to the murderous minions of Mo. I know I’d be more afraid of the guys rolling up their sleaves then ones toasting eachother on a good hangin’.

  23. Unregistered Comment by Infidel River Rat

    I’ve gotta sound off with TWO ideas. The first would be filmed, of course, and woul have Sadass hit in both kneecaps with a ballpeen hammer, then slashed once with a razor blade, just to get the scent of blood in the air. he would immediately then be thrown into a pen full of hungry pigs, who would then eat him alive! :thumbup_tb: #2, he would be duct taped to a chair, and then, relatives of his victims woulgd get 1 hit, and of course, there would be instruments available to them, such as short icepicks, pliers, billy clubs, etc., and the piece of shit would get a SLOW, painful death. Caveman, I like your idea too, but how about tourniqueting his legs just before lowering him into the shredder, so he wouldn’t bleed out quickly, and still get ALL of the pain?

  24. LC Mrs. M Comment by LC Mrs. M

    Personally I would have voted for the old “Honey and Fire Ants” method.

    Take the bastard out to the desert..(mid Summer would have been perfect). Tie him down spread eagled out on the hot sand. Pour honey all over (with special attention to the “family jewels”) and dump a bucket or two of fire ants all over him. (making sure to give the bucket a good shake just to piss the ants off.)
    After an hour or two of that…bring in the big guns….A bucket of Scorpions. He would certainly do alot of screaming and yelling, and it would be slow and painful to boot. Of course you could also make sure to have on hand a Cobra or two just in case the old bastard is tougher than he looks.

    *sigh* Oh well..maybe the next Murderous Dictator can try it out.

    Count me in with the Imperial Agent Provocateur:

    I really don’t care to see the maggot die. I’m pleased as punch that Satan gets to check another one off his shopping list, but I think the euphoria is misplaced.

    I’m glad to see I’m not the only LC who feels a little conflicted over Saddam getting what he had coming. My own first reaction to the news was much the same as DJ Allyn described above: glee mixed with regret that Saddam didn’t face the same method of execution that he dealt out to so many of his own victims (the wood-chipper treatment). I then found myself wondering if this sort of attitude wasn’t akin to doing an end-zone sack dance on the curb after taking out the garbage:

    – “BOO-YAH! The rock is in the hole! Nothin’ but net!”

    – “Honey, could you keep it down, please? The kids are already in bed…”

    Yeah, the Iraqis - and the Kuwaitis, for that matter - darned well ought to be dancing in the streets at Saddam’s demise. For America, however, Saddam represented unfinished business: a mess we should have cleaned up properly the first time we had the chance…and didn’t.

    Had Bush 41, Colin Powell and James A. Baker III did a proper job of things seventeen years ago, tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians and some three thousand US troops (and counting) might still be alive today. Yet, despite the ongoing example of lost blood and treasure in Iraq, pretty much the same cast of characters seem bound and determined to make the same kind of mistakes that led us to call off Desert Storm before the enemy was fully defeated.

    And not just in Iraq.

    So I’m not sure we should be celebrating at all. The job isn’t done yet.

  29. Xystus Comment by Xystus

    As Infidel River Rat noted, one might expect a guy to soon exsanguinate by shredding.

    It so happens I’ve seen a page or two on the Net about the presumed effects of spacing, but that was years ago & I don’t recall the site(s). IIRC, once upon a time a suited astronaut type was practicing in a vacuum chamber when some accidental leak exposed him to decompression; fortunately he was rescued in time. He lost consciousness after maybe 15 seconds & said the last thing he felt was moisture boiling off his tongue. So tossing Sodom out an airlock would’ve yielded little bang for the buck.

    As a US American I’ve got no problem with how Iraq eliminated the big creep. His country tried him (as we should allow) & was entitled to give him a criminal’s execution. That it was too good for him is unavoidable, but I’ve given up the notion that I should try dispensing cosmic justice. If I believe in a morally-ordered universe, I should let that take care of itself with the creep & his legions of dirty workers (Which does not mean I wouldn’t battle them all to the death if necessary). The only appealing embellishment might be to chop off his noggin & display it on a pole “as a warning to the next ten generations [insert rest of famous Vir quote from Babylon 5 here].”

Steadfast resolve, a willingness to sacrifice everything, and and an inplacable sense of calm punctuated by moments of intensity that left no doubt that if only one was goning to be standing when it was done, it wouldn’t be you.

    If I were going to go that route, I would have cut out a couple of steps. Take him to the desert, and put two behind his ear. I might consider tossing some gas on him and burn the corpse. I forget, can Muslims be cremated?

    Had Bush 41, Colin Powell and James A. Baker III did a proper job of things seventeen years ago, tens of thousands of Iraqi civilians and some three thousand US troops (and counting) might still be alive today.

  35. Emperor Misha I Comment by Emperor Misha I UNITED STATES

    Blah. Amateurs.

    I’d paralyze his diaphragm and put him on a respirator to ensure that he continued breathing.

    Then I’d flip off the respirator, let him enjoy the feeling of suffocating for a couple of minutes, then flip it back on.

    Rinse, lather, repeat until I got bored with it.

    Anybody who has ever experienced dyspnoea due to asthma, anafylactic shock or any other reason will know just exactly how horrible the feeling of suffocating is.

    And as to celebrating his hanging, I don’t see a problem there. UNLESS, of course, anybody is actually silly enough to think that his death changes anything or that it means that the job is done. It isn’t. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate.

    When the British 7th Armored annihilated the Italian forces at Beda Fomm in February of 1941, it didn’t mean that the war was over. It didn’t even mean that the North African campaign was over. Not by a long shot.

    But I dare say that the Brits had reason to celebrate nonetheless.

    This hanging was the last paragraph of Hussein’s reign of terror. He and his depraved, criminally insane sons are now all in Hell and what they were is now irrevocably and blessedly gone and over with. They’re not coming back. This one is for the people of Iraq, who have been denied closure for way too long. I celebrate with them because I, like they, rejoice in the elimination of tyrants.

    It doesn’t mean that it’s over, it doesn’t mean that we can all go home and twiddle our thumbs, but it DOES mean that justice, in his case, was finally served.

    If that’s not reason for celebration, then I don’t know what is.

  36. Master Sergeant Comment by Master Sergeant UNITED STATES

    I would have preferred the old standby, execution by firing squad. Fore some reason, it just seems to pack more of a wallop.

    Actually, that’s what the little shitbag requested, “the death of a soldier.” Traditionally that’s how soldiers are executed, even cowards & quasi-deserters like Slovik in WW2. Murderers and rapists were always executed by hanging, though the rationale isn’t clear to me. Perhaps the theory is that cowardice under fire is somewhat understandable, though not forgiveable, but indulging in voluntary conduct that disgraces the uniform, like rape & murder, disqualifies you from an honorable death.

    A reasonable person would expect a proper hanging to be quicker and less painful than a firing squad, so it’s still pretty bizarre overall.

    We still have a bunch of shitbags on military death row but it’s hard to say if any of them will ever die. If they do, I believe it’s lethal injection, period. Too bad, since I’d like to see that piece of shit Muslim airborne soldier do the rope dance for fragging in Iraq. With any luck some other prisoner will kill him.

    Herr Hussein’s mortal coil has been remanded to his relatives.
    “The head of Saddam’s Albu-Nassir’s clan said the body showed no signs of mistreatment.”

    “We received the body of Saddam Hussein without any complications. There was cooperation by the prime minister and his office’s director,” the clan chief, Sheik al-Nidaa, told state-run Al-Iraqiya television. “We opened the coffin of Saddam. He was cleaned and wrapped according to Islamic teachings. We didn’t see any unnatural signs on his body.”

    Aside from the black & blue stretch marks around his neck of course. And his little pecker peeking out from the slit in his throat.

    Unnatural signs? There should have been crop circles mowed into his body. Before he was hung.
