Saddam Hussein Executed In A Land That Seems To Resolve Most Things In Blood
The execution of Saddam Hussein seemed to be just the closing chapter that you'd expect to see in the bloody and violent land of Iraq, where mercy, morality, and religious maturity seems to be in very short supply. Sunni radicals will likely only use this death only to inspire more car bomb attacks to quiet the celebrating Shiites in the streets of the Sadr City slum and elsewhere in Iraq. This society just never seems to evolve beyond a continued cycle of violence.
Earlier this year, right here in the U.S. we saw just the opposite of the prehistoric moral values of many in Iraq, with the outpouring of mercy towards the family of the gunman who murdered some little Amish girls at their schoolhouse. Some Amish community members even attended the funeral of the gunman as a display of the power of their faith to offer mercy and forgiveness to those totally undeserving of mercy and forgiveness. Compared to some in Muslim community who insist that they are religious, but take lives over a cartoon such as the controversial Danish ones, there is tons of religious value maturity lessons that could be taken from the Amish example.
The execution of Saddam Hussein is only a postive event in Iraq if you think that the country doesn't have enough sectarian tensions and inspirations for Sunni and Shiite violence towards each other.
