Saddam is sentenced to death

Sunday, November 05, 2006

From alReuters :

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Saddam Hussein was sentenced to hang by a U.S.-sponsored Iraqi court which found him guilty on Sunday of crimes against humanity.

The ousted president, visibly shaken, shouted out "Allahu Akbar!" (God is Greatest) and "Long live the nation!".

Gotta love Reuters. If Reuters really does not think this verdict is representative of the feelings of the Iraqi people they can always demand that Saddam be set free. We could all lay bets on how far past the door he would get. I think his fate would be much the same as another fascist.

Did Karl Rove slip a few bucks to the judge? Saddam's death sentence should help on Tuesday. It reminds people why we went to Iraq. I do, however, wish the recent news about Iraq's atom bomb project was released a little sooner.

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Too bad we can't kill him twice.

Can they hang him horizontally. One rope around his neck, another around his ankles. Then pull slowly.... oh, so slowly...

they should wire the trap door so that it only opens when a majority of iraqi voters have pressed a button. Leave him hanging on whether he is still the President of Iraq.

They should save some parts for Ramsey Clark to take home in a doggie bag.

Can the Mussolini execution be replicated do ya think?

What a visual.

FA,

I think that Ramsey Clark should definitely join Saddam - as an act of true solidarity.

Rick--

DIdn't someone say something about hanging together?

At the very least Ramsey Clark should have the decency to hang onto his legs to make it quick,a bit traditional perhaps.....
