Executing Saddam Hussein

I am probably in the minority, but I find the execution of Saddam Hussein troublesome, knowing full well the savage, murderous environment he created for so many people. There is no doubt he will go down in history as one of the most brutal dictators that ever lived. Yet, watching him take his final steps to meet his executioners disturbs me on some level. I don't see how the premeditated execution of a man, any man, heinous as he may be, is incommensurable with what he is being executed for.

The irony is many of the people who fight for capital punishment are the same ones claiming they trust God implicitly... yet they cannot trust God enough to decide how and when the fate, of what they believe He created, should be.

Who gives any man the right to play God?
