I think the method of execution says a lot politically. What type of message would you want to send to the rest of the world?

I went with keelhauling because I'm feeling a bit piraty at the moment.

As an aside, I don't think he'll become a martyr, 'cause really, who wants to be known as a Saddamite?

i would have sentenced him to clean all the toilets in every subway station in new york, that would have killed him.

All those things are a waste of equipment. Forced manual labor is the way to go.

Force him to carry cement blocks one by one and rebuild buildings in Iraq for the rest of his life or something.

Hanging. Because it's the method of execution for criminals, and that's exactly what he was.

Hanging is the traditional method of execution for criminals, especially thieves, so this method was most appropriate.

And as murder is by definition the unlawful killing of another person, legal execution in accordance with an order from a court of law cannot be murder.

I concur, I think the hanging was appropriate. After WWII those convicted of warcrimes were hung.

Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.
