YAKIMA, Wash -- As America woke up this morning, news of Saddam Hussein's execution began to set in. Opinions about the war and the man continue to be mixed, and passionate.

"I think it was long over due," said Heather White of Yakima. "It should have happened months, years ago. She hopes that it will bring peace to Iraq.

But others like Andy Gonzales, don't think his death will do anything to stop the fighting.

"It might make things worse," said Gonzales.

Other like Rick Wilson, are upset that Hussein will not stand trial for his other crimes.

"I am concerned that because he was killed we will never know the answer to the other crimes which he was suppose to be complicit.
