Saddam prefers death by shooting

By Paul Martin
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
January 3, 2006

LONDON -- Saddam Hussein has told his lawyers that he wants to be shot by firing squad, not hanged, if sentenced to death during his murder trial, which resumes later this month in Baghdad.
Saddam maintains that he is still commander in chief of Iraq's armed forces -- and that a firing squad is "the right way" to execute a military leader.
"I'm not afraid of death," he told two of his lawyers in an astonishingly candid five-hour meeting, as he sat in a comfortable chair at the head of the table.
"Of course I'm not guilty, but I know they want me dead."
One of his lawyers, Issam Ghazzawi, took extensive notes. During a recent interview in Amman, Jordan, he gave The Washington Times details of the extraordinary discussion.
He and former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark met with Saddam on Dec. 7 in a basement room under the heavily guarded courthouse in Baghdad.
No one else was present for this session, which took place during a break in proceedings while Saddam was refusing to return to the dock.
All five of Saddam's lawyers met with the deposed Iraqi leader in the same setting a week earlier for an hour during a lunch break.
Mr. Clark confirmed most of the details of the meetings in a telephone interview with The Times on his return to New York, although he said the part of the conversation regarding Saddam's stated preference for a firing squad had not been translated to him by Mr. Ghazzawi at the time.
The trial, which has been interrupted by several adjournments, a temporary walkout by Saddam and harangues from the accused, is to resume Jan. 24.
"Threatening me with death doesn't mean anything," Saddam told the two lawyers. "I don't care less. The life of any one Iraqi is no less valuable than mine."
The lawyers had delicately raised the possibility of Saddam's being executed. He responded, "I am the commander in chief. ... I prefer it to be by firing squad. I am the commander in chief."



No objection here... except for the length of the trial.

Nope..shooting would be too quick for him...

Let him hang slowly...with no drop.... I think he is afraid of strangling to death on a rope..

I'm sure he only said that because he knows damn well the Iraqi doing it would set it up to ensure a slow strangulation.

That said, they should listen to him, and burn him at the stake... That can still be designed to offer the slowest possible death...

I'm no sadist, I just know what the Iraqi's want for him...

+1, do something he doesn't want. What about papercutting him to death, is that possible?

Firing squad ...."sweet" .

8 guys 100ys from the hip full auto . That way many more Iraqis get a chance to "ring the bell" . It should take two days or so based on the marksmanship skills Ive seen .

I think that might kinda spook him .



or just hang him , I've seen hangings over there (film) they have big cranes that just raises you up .

ETA yea kinda like Taxmans guy ...but worse

Hang him with no drop while strangling.. Insert into woodchipper feet first, slow speed, and back off a few times if woodchipper chokes. Restart process.

We had a guy get caught and pulled into an industrial metal shredder a couple years ago. The largest thing to make it through was his face, which was about 6x8 inches. No bones - just skin.

Poor focker went in feet first. I'm all for repeating it with saddam.

Give him back his country and bring the armed forces back home.

Flaying would be a nice start.
Link Posted: 1/2/2006 10:59:08 PM EDT
I honestly think they should make him "Walk the Plank" off of a 25 story building. He allowed, and participated in some sick ways to kill people. The one that got me the most was watching video his guys throwing people off of building's there were hight enough to break lots of bones, but not quite hight enough to kill...

Indeed. He's one of histories most prolific genocidal mass murderers. Firing squad is meant to be for soldiers with at least some shred of decency. He deserves to suffer the fate of the war criminals executed at Nuremberg, with a short rope strangling him slowly.
