request for protection Edit

This article is about to get edited to include his death. This is not canon, and may not belong. I suggest the article be protected, and that whatever change is going to happen be discussed here before we get an edit war. --OuroborosCobra talk 03:54, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

I've temporarily protected the page based on the possibility of vandalism, although it is admittedly not a good basis. I don't see a problem with IP users stopping by here first before they add any info, as it is questionable as to what, if any, real-world info should be added (like, of course, the recent news).--Tim Thomason 04:18, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Execution date Edit

Well, now that this has been semi-protected, the discussion I asked for. Basically, as we all know, Saddam Hussein was executed just before 0300 GMT on 30 December. It would be easy to add this information to the article, but I do not think we should. We only put canon information in the main areas of the articles, and there is nothing in canon about this. The history in the Star Trek universe is well known to differ from our own (unless I missed the Eugenics Wars, I was sleepy in 1996). In other articles for real world figures, we do not even seem to mention their death (or birth) date in a background note (see Ronald Reagan). I therefore believe it should not be entered here. --OuroborosCobra talk 04:31, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Sounds alright to me. (Also noticed you are participating in the talk discussion in regards to the confirmed status of his death on Wikipedia) - Enzo Aquarius 04:34, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

Yup, also on the X-Files wiki :-) --OuroborosCobra talk 04:37, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
