A ride in my Way-Back machine

Well, we don't have to go that far back.
Just remember back to the end of WWII. One of the greatest moves that the US and our allies did was to let Emperor Hirohito live. We had every right under any international law to execute the man. We could see that the Japanese people viewed this man as a living God. How many more lives would have been lost(both American and Japanese) if we had done that. Sure he was stripped of all of his power and authority, but he was still there for the people to see.
Now we jump forward. Saddam was found guilty of murder and was executed. He was found guilty of 184 deaths in 1982. He can never be tried for any other crime because he is dead.
When Saddam was captured his two sons were already dead. Now, the question is? How many lives could have been saved, both American and Iraqi, he he had been let live as a figurehead leader?
Now people who disagree with me have every right to their views, because after all this is just supposition on my part.
