This is much like the conversation that I had today over lunch. Americans are completely hypocritical when it comes to Saddam Hussein's crimes on humanity. We are no strangers to genocide. America is responsible for the near decimation of millions of Native Americans over the centuries of "discovery." We've gone so far as to use Gatlin guns on the Native American population before their final surrender.

I believe life imprisonment is the more ideal punishment for Hussein. The death penalty is a barbaric practice and you cannot be a civilized country when you practice barbaric practices.

That's just one woman's opinion.

So we should never punish a person for an atrocity because some of our forefathers weren't as enlightened as we are now? The death penalty is more humane than forcing a person to live their life out in a cage with other criminals and be raped and so on. Barbaric and civilised are the kind of words and judgements those people who murdered all those native americans used.
