I don't think he wanted to keep his beard? o.o; If I remember correctly, he didn't have one before he went into hiding. Just a moustache, which they apparently let him keep according to the news report on the radio.

They shaved his beard because the world needed to recognize him underneath the facial hair that has grown. It's the same reason why Uday and Qusay were shaved before they were shown to the world.

Interesting how someone can have "mixed feelings" for a mass murderer.

As for mewthree, just letting you know how many people we're saving.. Let's see... in the 9 months after the invasion (I think), at 10k/month.. that's 90,000 Iraqis we've saved from Saddam. Yeah, it's worth it. Also, that whole "Bring democracy and a good economy to Iraq" thing.

Certainly the capture of Saddam Hussein(sp) is certainly a monumental day in the demise of terrorism...but we must consider all of Saddam's followers that are still running around Iraq with bombs strapped to their bodies...Terrorism is when people have the belief that by killing themselves as well as several of opposing soldiers, they will be a hero in heaven. Saddam's followers will not stop fighting until they are all dead, just chasing the dream to die a hero and get a free ticket into Heaven. Theoretically, there is no way to completely stop terrorism unless we nuke all of Iraq, and thus all of the suicide bombers, but that will kill more innocent civilians than we can afford at this point, so you can see how conflicted the U.S. military officers must be at this point. We want to stop the Terrorist regime with as few American/British/whoever else casualities as possible, but that will be incredibly hard with th opponents we are facing now...

...see? I'm capable of making serious poitical posts...

Hmmm...All I'm gunna say is a disagree with part of that, and because of my lack of knowledge of the rules of this forum Im not going to attempt to argue this at this point, Ive already been in one very rough conversation about Saddam and the War today and I dont want to inadvertently start another.

As Homer Simpson would put it "for shame!" I was getting ready to watching the morning sports update when suddenly I see on CP24 that Saddam Hussein was captured. I was like WHAAA???? I was pretty happy even though I don't support this whole war on terrorism and weapons of mass destruction nonsense. Isn't it ironic that Saddam is scared to die, but he tells all the other people to die for him? Looks like he's a coward at heard. He doesn't look all that tough anymore, but I'm sure he's a crazy nut inside. Anyway, I hope Americans don't go over board with this and claim that they are the best country in the world.... knowing Americans, they'll do that, since they have to feed they massive ego to the masses to get them to swallow this George Bush propoganda. I could go on for days aobut Bush, but I have better things to do. 1 down, 1 more to go (Osama Bin Laden)!

I had an idea on how to extract information from him. Strap him into a chair with a lie detector. Connect both of them to a computer that will give him questions and if he lies, he gets shocked with an increasing level of electricity. When he answers truthfully, the computer should store the answer, move on to another question and basically start the cycle over again until all of the questions are answered. Call it a data extraction machine, lol.

I find it wrong that they forced shaved his beard. Even though he's a bad man he still should have the right to keep his beard.
lol, they gave him time to shave and clean himself up. Afterall, he was found in some 6 (or something :P) feet deep hole that he dug for himself, where he stayed for like 3 month with $750000 U.S.Dollars. Anyone knowtice how they kept repeating, about the the hole, "With rats and mice" over and over again? :P I wonder what in the world they're trying to say lol.
I didn't know Saddam was already caught. o.O;!

In Tony Blair's speech, it's mentioned that the British and the Americans found mass graves of 400000+ Iraqi civilians killed under Saddam's regime. And in the 1980's 8 year war between Iraq and Iran, millions died on both sides.

I don't know about the first Guld War but, there were about 10000 Iraqis killed in the second Guld war.
I know that; I have two cousins that fought in Iraq because they were in the military. One has been home since October, but there's still another there... And I think a little victory dancing is fine right now. We just caught one of the most evil people in Iraq, whom we've been searching for for ages. ^_^;
Yup, "the ace of spades" if I remember correctly, and also the man who called Bush "the despot of the century". XD Heh, hopefully your cousins come home alive then. :P

Every soldier that dies in Iraq is a part of the cost to freeing Iraq.
I had an idea on how to extract information from him. Strap him into a chair with a lie detector.

Meh, I think Saddam should be brought to the Iraqis as soon as possible. Which, the time being, the Americans'll probably keep Saddam outside Iraq for at least half a year. I don't think the Americans should use those things you mentioned to make him to say things.

What has Saddam been reveiling anyway? I know it was said in the news Saddam has been "talkative" but I didn't hear anything about what Saddam was actually being talkative about.
So, what's the difference betraying is betraying and you might think of them as the bad guys but for them Americans are the bad guys.

Yes, now youll stomp me and call me a stupid beeeeeeetch, but how would you feel, if you were Saddam, and one day, (just like I, today) you read a daily newspaper with 5 pages about you(saddam). Instead of hussein, the say monster, instead of saddam it is The Cruel Dictator.

Well....I'm not really happy about his capture. That may sound odd, but I mean, he wasn't doing any harm where he was, so what good could they possibly have done by capturing him? He wasn't exactly controlling the rebelling Iraqis, he was just a kind of figurehead. I don't mind the fact that he's captured, though. What bothers me is the fact that he's very likely to face the death penalty. I do realise just how many he's killed during his time as ruler, but if he was doing what he thought was right...NOBODY is evil, everybody has a reason. And I hate the idea of the death penalty as it is. Always have. It's stupid, because nobody can control what happens after death, and I'm not saying thatthis is any more right, but if they want someone to suffer, whatever happened to torture chambers? Where he is now is going to be more comfortable than the rat-hole he was in before, but I worry about what will happen in the future.

That's true in some places but men don't "abuse" them they "punish" them. It's different, if I was coming home from a long tiring day and my dinner wasn't made, things are going to get dirty. Also, you don't have to sterotype because that's just like saying women are golddiggers.

If he was hiding in slovakia, there would have been a US invasion to get him.

Your right, they made him look like a monster. After all, all he did was slaughter people with chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, perform autopsys to see if they died correctly, torture people by having their body parts ripped off and/or dropping them from 5 story building, start wars killing hundreds of thousands, set Kuwait's oil fields on fire, throw millions of barrels of oil into the mediterrean to get the record for the world's worst marine disaster which killed millions of ocean life, dictate to people how they should live their lives, establish a secret police to make sure people were doing and thinking what he wanted them to, attempt to assassinate an American president, donate millions of dollars to pay for sucide bombings killing people in Israel, work with Osama Bin Laden for 13 years, establish an Al Quida terrorist training camp, donate millions of US dollars to Al Quida some of which were used to mass murder US citizens on 9/11, kill who ever questioned him, use the aid sent by the UN to feed his military, build palaces with the oil money he was supposed to use to make his people live better lives, violate 17 United Nation "resolutions," violate the geniva convention by torturing PoWs, and a few other things. I don't see what he did to be considered cruel. Infact he is the nicest guy I have ever heard of.

One Word: POW. Under the Geneva Convention he is a Prisoner of War, he can be interrogated mildly, slightly harassed, but not touched. If even one of those Red Cross inspectors that come to check the POW's think hes was injured by an US soldier itll be on the news in minutes and we will be portrayed as the bad guysagain.

I personally think he is a monster, no matter what anyone says.I believe this because well, just think of the Iraquis.Day after day, hundreds of them were killed because of him.You have hardly any freedom, and you have no say in it.How would you feel?

As far as I know United States use to call Ho Chi Minh a mass murderer and that wasn't true.

Well....I'm not really happy about his capture. That may sound odd, but I mean, he wasn't doing any harm where he was, so what good could they possibly have done by capturing him? He wasn't exactly controlling the rebelling Iraqis, he was just a kind of figurehead. I don't mind the fact that he's captured, though. What bothers me is the fact that he's very likely to face the death penalty. I do realise just how many he's killed during his time as ruler, but if he was doing what he thought was right...NOBODY is evil, everybody has a reason. And I hate the idea of the death penalty as it is. Always have. It's stupid, because nobody can control what happens after death, and I'm not saying thatthis is any more right, but if they want someone to suffer, whatever happened to torture chambers? Where he is now is going to be more comfortable than the rat-hole he was in before, but I worry about what will happen in the future.
Yup, the Iraqis probably would want him dead. I don't agree with a death penalty either, and I think the UN is also saying that no one deserves the death penalty. What would they do with Saddam then? Give him a job? O.o
That is one of the reasons why I don't hate him. I don't trust the news and the **** they're telling about him. I mean it's normal for a leader to kill people. Some leaders are less harsh than others and some aren't.
That's what their political power rests on...:P

This may sound harsh, but I say they let him rot in prison for all the crimes he committed

I say just let him be exiled to his house for life with heavy security.

If you do that, then followers will continue suicide stuff to get him free

Just let the Iraquis decide

If they continue to suicide and succeed then congratulations to them. The Iraqis will probably kill him so that wouldn't be smart.

To tell you the Truth, I dont care about his capture.. I dont really care if the U.S caught him or not, he'll die eventually..

Here's my opinion, and nobody be offended by it because.. it's just my opinion and I'm not trying to say that everyone else is wrong. o.o

I hope they torture him nice and slowly. They should just throw him out onto the Iraqi streets and let the people take care of him. He really deserves it. While he was living in some of the riches, biggest castle-type things, all of his people were forced to live in old dirty houses. And he was cruel to them.. The other night on the news they were having a special about him, after he was caught, and it told of him shooting a little girl in the head, right in front of her mother! And I bet you the only sort of thing she did to him was accidently drop one of the grapes off of the platter that he was eating on. -_- Anyone who would do just that deserves to die, in my opinion.

You go Kay! Even though he will die eventually, no one cares if he's alive or dead, but i want to see him being tortured, call me cruel but thats just me.

I just want him to enjoy the rest of his life in exile. He was power hungry and nothing more than that. I would probably do the same thing if they had given me all that power.

Too bad they didn't catch Bin Ladin. -_- Look at what he have been now. He used to be the most powerful man in Iraq, and just the day before yesterday, he was found in a stinking hole with a "couple" of money. What can that money do anyway? He deserves living in a stinking hole. -_-

Yup, Bush is no real hero untill he catches old Bin Laden. =P

lol That's what I thought at first, to put him on some island like what the British and her allies did with Napolean (He was power hungry too.) and give him a job, something to work on.
If they continue to suicide and succeed then congratulations to them. The Iraqis will probably kill him so that wouldn't be smart.
Exactly, there are too many Iraqis who wouldn't lose this oppurtunity they have right now, their new country, a free Iraq which costed hundreds of billions of USDollars and 10000+ lives. I don't think the Iraqis would let Hussein live if the death penalty is allowed. :\

That's true in some places but men don't "abuse" them they "punish" them. It's different, if I was coming home from a long tiring day and my dinner wasn't made, things are going to get dirty. Also, you don't have to sterotype because that's just like saying women are golddiggers.

But anyways, let's not turn this into a flame war.

No, I'm not trying to fight, I'm just saying that men who hit women to punish them or whatevs, its wrong. Men wouldn't like it either if women were the ones able to hit or punish them in cruel or unusual ways.

Anyways, I hope they torture Saddam, he hurt a LOT of people and clearly deserves it. Just like Kayleigh said, I think.. O_o;;

He's not tortured because it's a violation of the Genevina Conventions (sp?) if they torture him.... He's treated as equal as the american soldiers are treated.

As the US military says, he is being treated with all of the rights that a mass murderer is entitled to.

Yup, the Iraqis probably would want him dead. I don't agree with a death penalty either, and I think the UN is also saying that no one deserves the death penalty. What would they do with Saddam then? Give him a job? O.o

That's what their political power rests on...:P

Yep, I don't either. Instead, lets give him the electrical chair. 1 shot of 2 million Amps and Volts and he will be free to go. :classic:
