Eulogy
Well world, a evil man is dead. May this be the first of many who deserve the same fate. If you lead you are good, if you rule you deserve the rope.

I don't believe enough rope exists to hang all the evil ones. :o(

He died too soon. His co-conspirators live on. This is not over. Beware.

If you ever find the video, let me know, because I want to see it, too.

Traditionally a eulogy should be positive toward the "dearly" departed, with that in mind I will say that he was able to effectively keep the peace in Iraq.

i bet his last thoughts were those "weapons of mass destruction" would've come in handy around about now.

So true! And I bet he thought this, as he had the noose placed around his neck:

"Oh dear! Today is the tomorrow I was so worried about yesterday!" heh heh

Re: Euolgy are for good people
Men like Saddam have to be descendents of satan.

The only eulogy he's getting from most of us is jeers.

The first thing that came to mind were words of the unforgetable Moms Mabley when asked about a depaqrted husband, She remarked,

"I was always taught that if you can't say something good about the dead, then don't say it. 'He's dead. GOOD!"


He murdered the people in the country he led, he murdered his own family members, he murdered hundreds for little or no reason.

I could swing into a rendition of 'Ding Dong the Witch is dead' but I shall let it pass.

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life.
Comes into us at midnight very clean.
It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands.
It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

Maybe my point of you will seem to be weird to you, but I'll say... I've grown up in the country that had just become free from totalitarism.. Many of my relatieves lived while Stalin was ruling the country.. And I really KNOW how it was... It was terrible... You weren't allowed to leave the country, you weren't allowed to do what you want... Maybe for some people it's okay, but since my early childhood I knew that I would go to America, or any other foreign country, and that life would have no sense to me if I stayed in Russia... And that's why I hate Saddam and the leader of Northern Korea and etc. etc. : they not only kill so many people, hurt so many people, they also have ruined so many lives, so many dreams... No freedom.. For me this is worst than anything else.... to have no freedom...

My dearest Monica, what you have stated is not weird at all. I pray that someday, you will be able to escape to some other country, where there is freedom; hopefully America! You are a very beautiful and intelligent girl, and I know in my heart that someday you will be free!!

His life is a testimony to the danger of any man having too much power. His cruelty has been surpassed by very few. He has left behind thousands of people bereaved by his actions.

I've come to the conclusion that any man/woman who starts out as a good man, and is eventually given too much power, becomes an evil man/woman.

I find sometimes questioning my own faith, and wonder if there truly is a heaven and a hell.

Now that this man, who cause so much pain, is dead, I wonder...

To my favorite dictator EVER! Because of his contributions to America, we rarely had to worry about Iraq when he was in charge, and it was only when he was deposed did we realize the good he did for the world. He was irreplacable. No one else can make sense of that country but him, and no one else could keep the peace.

Apparently, the man who lies here before us was one of the great peacemakers of the 20th century

Eulogy
Saddam Hussein, like countless other men and women around the world, was born into poverty. He never knew his father, and his relationship with his step-father was apparently strained. He grew up in a country going through the turmoil of post-colonialism. He rose from obscurity to become the leader of a nation roughly twice the size and with twice the people of Illinois.

Hussein had an opportunity few will ever have--to lead an entire country. Instead of uniting a divided, fractured country into an era of peace and prosperity, he ruled through fear and tyranny, defying the world and not caring how many of his own subjects suffered or died under his watch. The world will not speak of any personal triumphs or accomplishments rising out of poverty, they will remember only a bully and a despot--an almost comical figure known through many thanks to South Park. They will remember that he died like a petty thug, with millions of people applauding.

Death is always tragic--even when it's the death of a tyrant, but the people of Iraq have asserted their will, and we must respect that decision, and we must hope that a new age may finally dawn on this country. Atrocity and terror are not political instruments. Let his death serve as a reminder of that.

Re: Eulogy
I suddenly find myself having a hard time dealing with the realities of our times. Perhaps it’s easier to be cold blooded, just like Saddam and so many others. His death has affected me. I never believed for a minute that they would really kill him. I can’t understand why I had this strong feeling of wanting to go and hug him, when I saw that man place the noose around his neck.

I’ve been trying so hard to change, and not care about all the things I always have.

Sometimes I wish I were not here.
