'So much to learn'

An almost miraculous event has occurred on the other side of the planet, in Iraq. Saddam Hussein has been convicted of murder and, in just a few days, sentenced to be executed, and then, actually executed by hanging.

Can we, in our "civilized" California society, appreciate such an astonishing event? Imagine it: A person can actually be sentenced to die, and then executed in less than 30 days! We have so much to learn from our Arab friends!
