Ding, Dong the dictator is dead. Saddam's death is sad for his family, but a wonderful day for justice. This man starved 500,000 children by stealing money set aside for their food and medicine to build an extra dozen palaces. Don't mention the 350-500,000 or so found in mass graves. This man was evil walking. Now he is commended to a just God.

The Vatican, Amnesty International and others, who want to push their anti-Biblical agenda against the death penalty, should be ashamed that they seem to have spent more time mourning the righteous execution of Saddam than comforting his many victims. I love the Catholic Church, but on this I depart and stand with Holy Scripture and common decency.

The Bible is explicit that the only justice for a man like this is the death penalty from Gen. 8 to Romans 13. The land is cries out for justice and the innocent blood is a curse against us until it is atoned for by shedding the blood of the guilty. May be now Iraq can move from the curse of division and move toward a land of freedom.

This is only one step. Iraq is a land which needs rebuilding, security, and reconciliation. I pray they get it. Our soldiers and marines have done yoeman's work. 80% of the country is relatively secure. They are however undermanned. They can't clear and hold the trouble areas. Now the capital is starting to descend into disorder. It is time to send more troops for 6 months to secure the Baghdad. We need to start training the Iraqis with better equipment and then start leaving. Our job was to give them a new start.
We have done that. Now let's start rebuilding so we can have another independent ally in the region.

We should learn the lessons of the Philippines after the Spanish American War.

I've never heard Saddam Hussein referred to as "Dong" before. Nor have I ever seen the Vatican described as anti-biblical. Fascinating.

Remember the saying from the Wizard of Oz--ding, dong the witch is dead? I did not want to liable witches so I used the more accurate word dictator. It alliterates better anyway.

I am glad you found it interesting.

I do want to clarify that I am refering to an agenda from the Vatican bureacracy against the Death penalty even though it is endorsed in both the Old and New Testaments. I am not calling the Vatican unbiblical. The Roman Catholic Church is a fine institution doing much good in our world.
