AP story

Updated: 11 minutes ago
BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraq's High Tribunal on Sunday found Saddam Hussein guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced him to hang for the 1982 killing of 148 Shiites in the city of Dujail. The visibly shaken former leader shouted "God is great!"

Saddam's half brother and former intelligence chief Barzan Ibrahim, and Awad Hamed al-Bandar, head of the former Revolutionary Court, were sentenced to join Saddam on the gallows for the Dujail killings after an unsuccessful assassination attempt during a Saddam visit to the city 35 miles north of Baghdad.

The death sentences automatically go to a nine-judge appeals panel which has unlimited time to review the case. If the verdicts and sentences are upheld, the executions must be carried out within 30 days.

Obviously starting as they mean to go on. When Nelson Mandela took control, he did away with capital punishment - showing that there had been enough of that already.

If only they had someone of Mandela's moral stature to lead the nation.

Ah. The new puppet government set up by the invading Empire conqueror forces prepares to execute the former tyrant client and friend of the invading Empire conqueror forces, the former client and friend having fallen out of favor in recent years for not being useful enough to the Empire, and who became expendable once his nasty reputation had helped serve as an excuse to launch an unprovoked invasion. This execution will be claimed to be at the behest of the Iraqi people which is a good joke, because the Iraqi people are bereft of any behest, which is to say that they don't really have anything to do with the decision of those who govern, because the people they voted for are puppets and do not really represent their interests.

Ha! Ha! Typical Earthling stuff, in other words.

We watch with a rare amusement, wondering what tawdry and outrageous turns the Iraq soap opera will take next as the Empire sinks slowly deeper and deeper into the morass of its ill-considered and violent attempts to rob small countries of their energy resources.

Seems to me I remember something about a free and open election in Iraq. Even Jimmy Carter signed off on it as being a fair election. Puppet government??? And as far as the execution of Saddam, shooting is too good for him. That could be considered as a warrior's death. Saddam is of the same ilk as Hitler: a mass murderer. He deserves the Eastern curse, death by hanging on a tree.

Nelson Mandela did a great thing by being a personal example of forgiveness.

You need someone to say that whatever has happened and whatever will happen, I will be the first one to put violence behind me - please join me.

This man has friends, relatives, people who will grieve for his memory and and honour what he stood for. Its a dumb move.

As for the 72 virgins, he could do three trips to Inverness. Do they laugh at the stupid things in our religion - I bet they do. Do they walk round Soho saying, what a good job these people don't look at a woman with lust in their heart!

Where are the weapons of mass destruction? The ones WE sold him. Oh, I forgot - he used them on the Kurds. A crime we're hanging him for. That's either very clever or very stupid by all concerned.

The Kurds, of course, remain very dead. As do several thousand other people.

I'm with weelittledrummer on this one...I fail to see how treating a perpetrator of humanitarian atrocities with human atrocity accomplishes anything but the continuation of a vicious and ultimately pointless cycle. But I guess that's just one more way in which I seem to be perennially out of touch with the prevailing attitudes of my countrymen, alas.

FYI, Desdemona, I have been to two traffic fatalities in the past two weeks. I said 'last rites' over a young gal and had my head and shoulders in a vehicle trying to see if the driver was still alive in the other. The vehicle was engulfed at the time, and four guys using 1 1/2" hoses were keeping the flame off me while I checked.

I do believe there is a sanctity to human life. I guess I simply think some folks just ain't human, and when they put themselves above and beyond humanity, I cease to see the point of them being around. Saddam Hussein is one such case.

Equally, I taught in a maximum security facility for a year about two decades ago. Many of my 'students' were there because they had been convicted of murder. In most cases, the murders--while not right--were at least understandable. I see nothing understandable about Hussein's actions. I didn't then and I don't now.

I have no wish to argue with you. I appreciate your position, and yes, I respect it. I just don't share it.
