why do people kill people who kill people to show people that killing people is wrong?

So, Saddam has been executed. Now I suppose the next thing I should hear is that all those people he killed are alive again, because isn't that why he was killed?

I can understand Iraq's feelings about this. I don't agree with revenge, but I understand it. I do NOT get America's elation. Somebody needs to 'splain, Lucy, because I just don't understand killing people for killing people. I don't honestly think I ever will, really. *sigh*

And, a twenty-year-old saying "I guess it's one less person in the world we have to deal with" makes me feel icky inside.
