    That's correct. Of course, it was beyond our control. Saddam was tried and hanged by Iraqis.

    Take it up the Iraqis. They tried him and executed him. Their choice. We just handed him over to the proper authorities. We cannot be held responsible for everything that happens in the world.

    I find that it provides justification for the rationalization of murder: "if the government can kill a defenseless person for their reasons, then I can for mine". In this way it's counter-productive, it encourages (not deters) murder.

    It's been around forever and doesn't seem to be a very good deterrent. I think that most people either don't care or don't think that they'll be caught. As for the pro DP people, it seems there are a lot of them who like to play God.

    There is overwhelming evidence that it does not deter. Further, the rationalization it provides (which encourages) cannot be denied.
