Imran: How about an old-fashioned game of "Hangman" instead? Trite, but appropriate? LOL.

Seriously though, I still feel odd discomfort about having Saddam condemned to death. He did terrible things, but somehow something about the trial and the sentencing doesn't feel quite right...like something's lopsided or missing somewhere...or like something right was done for the wrong reasons. Help me out people. What's wrong with the picture here?
