(Fark)   Fark won't be linking to the Saddam execution video. We realize CNN and Fox have it, if they want to run snuff films and call it news that's their business   (fark.com) divider line 742

The FArQ discusses this sort of thing, it won't happen.

There's a video? Nothing says justice like videotaping an execution I guess.

So is FARK going to link the execution video?
 
2006-12-30 09:07:31 PM
I wish I had a tube that I could see it on with a simple search. Stupid intertubes.

I know Saddam Hussein was evil and all, but since when do we rush to execute former heads of state? What was the big hurry? Saddam was still due to be tried for gassing the Kurds.

My take on this is that they purposely hanged him quickly so that Saddam and his lawyer could not bring attention to the fact that the CIA and the U.S. (including Reagan, Bush Sr., and Rumsfeld) provided him with material support during the periods of Saddam's worst killings.

As for the snuff film, it is a weird spectacle for our so-called less-barbaric society to be holding up this video for all to see. It used to be that the evil extremists had snuff films where they wore masks and killed whatever hostage(s) they had. Now apparently it is A-OK for our allies to do the exact same thing as those barbarians we are supposedly against.

What is happening to us?

But do you have the link to photos of Lisa Lopes' crash scene?

Yeah, c'mon people, this is a public forum! Have you no decency? You people disgust me, you know that?

\\Oh wait, torrent's done..

If Fark does not link to the Saddam video, the terrorists have won.

That seems fairly obvious to me. Surely if this trial were anything but a farce the Iran-Iraq war would have been a key component, but that would have meant discussing American involvement in his crimes.
 
2006-12-31 08:28:58 AM
Ah I see it's ok to post and use the picture of the Vietnamese dude getting shot in the head at point blank but is not ok to link to a video of an execution.


Hypocrisy.

We do not. However the Iraqi government seems to do it pretty damned fast.

It's lame anyway.

where can i view the actual execution? so far ive seen bs, suddams head in a noose thats it
 
2006-12-31 08:30:07 AM
Wow, the justice system is swift in Iraq.
 
2006-12-31 08:30:46 AM
being that I am against the death penalty, without compromise, this whole affair has saddened me. The dead of Saddam, which appears to have been accelerated, and the media reaction of widely distributing it, just shows our society is no better than the people glorifying beheadings on video tape.

How deplorable this all is.

sparkeyjames: "Ah I see it's ok to post and use the picture of the Vietnamese dude getting shot in the head at point blank but is not ok to link to a video of an execution. Hypocrisy."

Yeah because an old emblematic black-and-white still image is totally equivalent to a brand new prolonged snuff video complete with sound.
 
2006-12-31 08:32:23 AM
I've seen it,..no big deal. It is of poor quality, looks like it was made with a cell phone and the guy couldn't hold it still. I give it a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10.
 
2006-12-31 08:32:41 AM
I'll admit, I dumbly thought about linking it. Then I saw the warning in red not to do so. So I am a dummy, but not a totally hopeless dummy.
 
2006-12-31 08:32:43 AM
ytmnd has it it with the requisite video game background music.

2006-12-31 08:33:50 AM
And besides the book was better.

No, really, I was expecting, with all of the time they had, a dignifiedexecution. It just looked like a bunch of thugs, terrorists, killing another victim. Maybe it's because I'm to to western traditions and ceremonies. It just makes me more ashamed of what we've done to that country.

He's dead. There is no need to see it.
 
2006-12-31 08:33:55 AM
Drudge had it linked last night. Stop the clip at 2:14 for a great screen shot.
 
2006-12-31 08:34:51 AM
Ditto, Cankersnore!

Saddam Hussein was a rotten despot.  He was cruel, vicious and bloodthirsty--and those were probably some of the better aspects of his personality.

However, even though I do not shed a tear for Hussein, neither do I deny the importance of having a fitting action to take upon him for his evil machinations, I just struggle to understand how the U.S. can attempt to stem the tide of violence while simultaneously using or endorsing violence.  Am I the only one who perceives a deadly double standard?

Why does FARK hate America?
 
2006-12-31 08:36:40 AM
So when will these parts get enforced: "alarming deformities, roadkill, dead animals and bodily functions such as urine and feces"?

At the very least, posting that disgusting man-boobs picture should result in a banning.
 
2006-12-31 08:36:41 AM
cankersnore: Yeah because an old emblematic black-and-white still image is totally equivalent to a brand new prolonged snuff video complete with sound.

Yes yes it is. Either one is a dipiction of an execution. To allow one and not the other is as I stated hypocrisy.

This thread would have helped a lot on Friday night.
 
2006-12-31 08:37:19 AM
Good. The pictures looked no different than those of the beheadings. The hangmen weren't even wearing uniforms, it was like they got some guys off the street to do it. I'm all for justice and all, but how does this execution make the new Iraq any different from the old Iraq? How does this make America any better than the old Iraq, for that matter?

//Oh, I see. It was the Iraqis who carried out the sentance and execution. The US had nothing to do with it. (wink wink nudge nudge)

If "we" is the U.S., then "we" didn't execute him. Iraq did.

And HAPPY NEW YEAR from Australia!

ltdanman44

where can i view the actual execution?

Dude, where can't you see it? Fark is one of the few sites I've seen that don't have a link. If you must see it, there's this little website that all you have to do is type in what you are looking for and it will find the links for you. They even have a video section (where I saw the vid). Now what was that site called? Goggles? Giggles? Began with a "G" I know that...

That being said I wish there was an english translation for it. I would have liked to known what it was Saddam had said before they cut him off mid-sentance.

The mods remind me of the INFORMATION MINISTER. "There is no video of his majesty hanging, only ones of the infidel running away"
