I may as well revoke my team now.
If I knew we were playing execution watch, I would have been in with a chance...
Thus spake Windsor (who has just scored 5 DDP points with the execution of Saddam Hussain
When I chose Saddam Hussein back in 2005, we did not know how long the trial would last, there was no known sentence, and no given date or span of execution.
As it happens, he was only just executed in 2006 thus it was a gamble.
My other argument would be that Saddam Hussein is at least going to be noted in history. Not just a footnote like those who will meet their maker in 2007.
Thridly, I'm a bad loser.
