No, he was not hung. Only objects are hung, people are hanged. Whether he was hanged or hung, the fact is that Saddam Hussein was executed in Iraq. I was sure that this would have dangerous repercussions and i was right. This execution should not have happened.
DNA analysis could have proved Michael Jackson to be actually black, but i wouldn’t have believed it. The paparazzi could have taken the photo of the century with Paris Hilton arriving at a party fully dressed, but that is a matter to be covered up and wouldn’t interest me. Madonna could have adopted a white baby, so that she could create her own “United colors of benetton” ads, but this would have led the world to believe that her husband guy is a gay, so such a news could not be true. Even if the BJP in India went on a hunger strike because the congress government didn’t do enough to protect the state from a BJP MLA who kidnapped and killed innocent people, i wouldn’t have bothered about it. If salman khan makes another trip to the court with his trademark “I am innocent and god fearing” cap on his head, i would have dismissed it as yet another stunt. But Saddam should not have been executed.
Even if saddam was executed, “they” should have done it in secrecy and not released the photos and videos of the execution. Even if they had released the videos, NDTV should not have shown it on TV. I knew that such an act would result in calamity, to an unimaginable extent. But, NDTV did the unthinkable and showed the videos. Even if NDTV had decided to show the “news”, they should have done it sometime in the afternoon or evening. But, they telecast it in the morning and that too, just as i woke up that day. This was wrong!
So, NDTV showed photos and videos of his execution early in the morning just after i had kept the milk for boiling for my morning cup of coffee. This was wrong. And, the ardent news follower that i am, i was busy watching NDTV while the temperature on the stove increased to such an extent that the milk boiled and flowed all over the electric stove. At the end of it, on a beautiful morning, i had to listen to lessons from Vidhya on the art of boiling milk!
Saddam should not have been executed !
