Saddam: If Convicted, Just Shoot Me | NewsMax

Saddam Hussein wants an elitist high-falutin' execution, if it comes to that.
He asked the court to execute him by firing squad - "not by hanging as a common criminal" - if it convicts him of all charges and sentences him to death.

"I ask you being an Iraqi person that if you reach a verdict of death, execution, remember that I am a military man and should be killed by firing squad," he said.
"...not by hanging as a common criminal." Indeed! No common criminal here. Perhaps we should inflict some of Saddam's more gruesome torture of his victims upon him so that he has an appropriately un-common execution.
