See now this is a double edged sword. I have never liked him, ever. Not even once. And he has done some really, really REALLY heinous stuff in his life, but God says "You shall not murder."
Does that make us any better than Saddam? Does that make us any higher on the pedastal than him? We return violence and cruelty with violence and cruelty. But he doesn't seem to have any remorse over his past actions, he's just all "Boo ya I get to be a martyr!" not exactly a repentant attitude. It's not a black and white issue that's for sure...
Check this out - Iraq the Model its' good... read the comments, some of them I agree with, others not so much.
