Saddam On Trial Part X: If It Success, He Will Be Execute

Saddam Hussein has been found guilty of crimes against humanity and has been sentenced to death by hanging.

Sing it with me ladies: LULULULULULULULULULULULU!!!

I registered my rationale for supporting a death sentence for Saddam - even though I'm on record as a death penalty opponent - last year, so I won't rehash it here.

In a sign that there may actually be a burgeoning American-style democracy in Iraq, the verdict has moved into an appeals process of indefinite length. It could go on well past the end of Saddam's natural life. We shall see.

I don't have much more to add here, it just seemed like a natural time to close out my "Saddam On Trial" series. It's been a hoot. We've seen questionable use of personification, defendents dragged into court in their jammies, Saddam's personal weight loss program and much more.

Dibs on TV movie of the week rights!

ramsey clark: LOSER!!!
Clark, who heads an international team of lawyers involved in the defence, was ejected at the start of a hearing at which Saddam and two aides were convicted and sentenced to death.

The judge, Raouf Abdul Rahman, ejected Clark because he had sent a memo to Abdul Rahman including the accusation that the tribunal was making 'a mockery of justice'.

The judge told him in Arabic: 'No, you are the mockery ... get him out, out.'

Abdul Rahman then shouted in English: 'Out! Out!'

'You come from America and ridicule the Iraqi people,' he said.

right on judge. im sure "rimsey" will be welcomed home warmly back at the huffington post where everyone thinks bush is worse than saddam

I don't think we have any use for Rimmer... Bush isn't worse than Saddam, he's the same... Bush criticized Saddam for being a "brutal dictator," then opened up the Abu Ghraib torture factory... we quickly discovered Saddam's shocking torture rooms, but were planning our own at the same time... WTF?

I suspect the appeals process will take some time. However, while listing to PBS news yesterday morning, the newscaster did say that Iraqi law requires the hanging to be carried out within 30 days once the appeals have been settled. Of course that presumes the sentence is upheld.

I wonder which will bring greater chaos to Iraq - hanging or a life sentence? Just a thought.

the same? you not serious.

Of course he is serious Dawg remember he may be a great writer but he is still a Liberal at heart,I read the Huffington post,these are the people they want to lead us,scary isn't it.The idea of a Pelosi in the seat sends chills up my spine.Hence her lack of visibility over the last few weeks,they don't want to scare the American public away from the voting booths.

Pete Bogs said...

jack - dead men don't escape... then again, they do become marytrs... still, he deserves to face death...

k9 - with his detention, interrogation and surveillance powers, Bush is well on his way to becoming a brutal dictator himself... he meets several of the criteria already... he just needs to do more gesticulating and posturing during his speeches... he could stand to watch some footage of Il Duce...

hell - that "Pelosi is missing story" was debunked almost as soon as it hit the airwaves...

Hellpig said...

Dictator now your true Liberal color(Yellow)is showing through,he will be out of office in 2 years you can not have a dictatorship with free elections..And you are again wrong about Pelosi,where has she been in MSM NOWHERE Because the media doesn't want the public to know she will appoint an impeached judge to the chair of security for America and the fact she intends to raise federal spending 450 billion a year on bueracratic government positions are any agencies left out no,she increases them all her mandate should be "No Government Agency left behind" and she is considered a conservative Liberal in the immoral cess pool San Francisco where she was called a War Criminal

hell - these colors don't run, so how can they be yellow?

I'm just surprised that they decided to hang him. I thought that after the trail ended, they'd just take him out back of the courthouse and behead him. Am I missing something?

Pete Bogs said...

flab - apparently hanging is their preferred method... if it's good enough for unfaithful women, it's good enough for Saddam... the beheadings have been done by "insurgents"
