BBC NEWS | Saddam Hussein executed in Iraq

Hmmm. I guess there'll be a load of gloating round the warbloggers today. Obviously I'm not in favour of the death penalty : no humans have the right to kill others. So I'll line up with the British government on this.

Pragmatically it seems a pretty stupid move - it's the Shi'ite government playing to it's own people and further alienating the Sunnis. OTOH, it probably won't make things dramatically worse at this point. There's already a civil war going on in Iraq.
