Saddam a la forca

S'acaba de conèixer la sentència: Saddam Hussein anirà a la forca per expiar els assassinats de 148 persones a principis dels anys 80. Un doble sentiment m'ha abraçat quan he escoltat la notícia: d'una banda, una certa "alegria" al pensar que aquest desgraciat morirà quan algú ho decideixi, tal com ell va fer tantes vegades durant els anys en què va governar. Però de l'altra, de desgrat al pensar... que aquest desgraciat morirà quan algú ho decideixi, no quan li toqui per "llei natural". Sé que jo seria incapaç de dictar una sentència de mort però en el cas de Saddam no puc evitar pensar que s'ho mereix.

English Version
Saddam Hussein has just been sentenced to death: he'll soon die by hanging after being found guilty for ordering the killing of more than 100 people in the early 80s. A double feeling embraced me as soon as I heard the piece of news: on one side, some kind of "joyness" to realise that such a preak will die because of somebody else's decission, just like he did so many times before. On the other, though, I disliked it because... he will die after somebody else's decission. I would be not capable of sentencing the death penalty but in this case I can't help thinking he deserves it.
