Saddam is dead.

Good. NOW can we leave Iraq?

Didn't think so.

One thing about this that I find sickening and always have: Saddam Hussein the mass-murderer was propped up and aided by the very people who now claim to be horrified by it. He was a creation of the Republican Administrations of the United States of America. Reagan and Bush 41, specifically, with scads of help from people like Rumsfeld and Cheney.

They were for Saddam Hussein before they were against him.

In fact, they had NO PROBLEM with his gassing the Kurds and being a mass murderer when he was actually DOING it, because he was dancing to their tune at the time, and that's all that they really cared about.

His crime was not gassing the Kurds and being a mass murderer: his crime was that he stopped obeying the Bushes.

And that's sickening.

I don't see that his death is going to do anything except give the current administration another gong to bong in their un-ending litany of war. Didn't you like hearing "9-11" fifteen million times during the last elections?
Killing Saddam was supposedly Iraqi justice, but it was organized and orchestrated
the entire time by the United States. Life in prison would have been a better sentence, then he could live in torment without being a martyr.
3000 Americans gave their lives pointlessly, so that our government could have yet another reason to invade Iraq--Yeah, Saddam was a monster, Kim Jong Il is a monster, Fidel Castro is a monster, and lets not forget Omar al-Bashir of the Sudan. He's uprooted more than 2 million people, and killed more than 400,000 (kinda makes ole Saddam look like a slacker.) He's responsible for the total destruction going on in Darfur in Africa, yet we're not over there preserving democracy and helping those poor people.
Any time you hear the administration of this country telling us we're killing and maiming and sending our young men and women to their deaths to 'preserve Democracy' I suggest you get a shovel and start digging for oil, because apparently only nations with a large supply of it qualify for that 'privilege'. Iran will be next.
If it cost me 9 or 10 bucks a gallon for gasoline, I'd gladly pay it to know our troops aren't dying because of it.
