Saddam's execution is imminent...

...but I can't celebrate. Yes, he's a terrible man who is responsible for atrocities I don't want to imagine. But where's our moral high ground? We'll be complicit in the taking of one more life. A quick and easy death won't repay Saddam for what he's done, and it won't help to unite this fractured world we occupy. Why is an execution better than life in prison? I see no upside.
