We might not like the way Iraq was invaded (i personally don't) but does it take divine vision to see that saddam was the hit man in Iraq? He enriched himself with public fund and murdered some people that allegedly planned to assassinate him . I just wish leaders of this world will learn something out of it - you can never get free from abusing peoples freedom.

Saddam can go to hell as far as I am concern. I only have sympathy for those dead, dieing and those that will die tommorrow plus families left behind. Saddam is no issue here. He died long time ago.

Lets hope his death will not be an excuse for Iran to finally unleash their new found nuclear might on the rest of the world.
Since their sponsored insurgents did not succeed to highjack the trial process, they could as well put an end to the whole thing - na one rocket e go take.
Apocalypse don de near o shocked

In our world,might will always be right and almighty Big Sam has spoken.
 No sympathies for Saddam though;it's good riddance to bad rubbish.
 It's the inevitable ripple effect in the ever volatile Arab world that gives me some concern.

Re: Saddam Hussein Sentenced To Death By Hanging by twinstaiye(m): 1:23pm On Nov 06, 2006
The truth is, all leaders of a country are murderers. The invasion of Iraq, the proxy war in Lebanon, the sacking of Taliban in Afghanistan, the incessant and unconcerned fighting in Palestine etc all point to muders committed by US. Just like someone said above, might is always right. The truth however is that, Saddam himself know his end will either be like this or he die on the throne, So he saw it coming. Having said this however, the atrocities of war monger in Bush is continuing, after invading and sacking saddam in Iraq thereby fulfilling the task his dad was unable to do, he based his atrocities on WMD and saddam having a link with Al-qaeda, now that they now stated clearly that he neither has WMD nor has a link with Al-Qaeda, they made the world believe their invasion of iraq has to do with his quashing of opposition in the past. The truth is Saddam issue has to do with politics in US, the anti terror war has to do with politics in US, let no one decieve the world further. And let USA not blind our faces with the real issue in hand, the real issue is how are they going to deal with the war in Iraq, a civil war is brewing up, and the fact that it (US) fail in Iraq and its invasion is uncalled for, high handed and cross border murder in the highest degree is the real issue here.

"Justice at last." I am sure that it will be better for the security of Iraq to hang him immediately. The longer they delay, the longer the violence about not hanging him and when he is eventually hanged, more violence will erupt. To avoid an elongation of the violence, he should be "hung by neck untill he dies and may God have mercy oh his soul," that is, if he has any.

Well, now's da right time for America to finally steal all Iraqi's oil, Saddam Hussein being sentenced to death may not really solve the already deeply-etched problem in Iraq lipsrsealed
Re: Saddam Hussein Sentenced To Death By Hanging by gwatala(m): 5:00pm On Nov 06, 2006
Almost everyone here is rejoicing. "Saddam deserves it, etc". Fair enough(?) What of George Bush, and the irrational hawks of the American government who have committed more human right abuses than Saddam has, and are still protected by the sovereignity of the American government? Think.

By the way, Death Sentence is never a deterrent. And in this case, it is mostly political. Might is right. Isn't it?

Re: Saddam Hussein Sentenced To Death By Hanging by tyrex(m): 6:28pm On Nov 06, 2006
I wouldn't say serves him right, who am I to judge?


Excerpt from NBC news below

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.

Chief prosecutor Jaafar al-Moussawi told reporters that the Anfal trial now in progress for Saddam and others alleged role in gassing and killing Kurds would continue while the appeals process is underway. But if the appellate judges uphold the death sentence, the Anfal proceedings and other cases would be halted and Saddam hanged.

Al-Moussawi said Saddam would be hanged if the sentence were upheld, despite his demand that he be shot by a firing squad.

A court official told The Associated Press that the appeals process was likely to take three to four weeks once the formal paperwork was submitted.

Re: Saddam Hussein Sentenced To Death By Hanging by omofineboy(m): 9:00pm On Nov 06, 2006
who is more criminal than George Bush Snr and Jnr, how many Iraqis have they killed since 1990-1991 and the latest invasion of Iraq, for whatever reasons they might adduce to this they are more criminal than Hussein, after hanging Hussein, George Bush should also be hanged or sentenced to death by firing squard. Even most American are sad with the last invasion of Iraq, God will punish all of them. we dont need to be sentimental, everyone knows from day one that he will be convicted, by the way who are the panel of judges? we should all know that God of heaven will judge us all.

serves him right, now is charles taylor and osama

How are we sure the problems in iraq will be solved after he's been killed
Re: Saddam Hussein Sentenced To Death By Hanging by mamaput(f): 10:28pm On Nov 06, 2006
There are many things i did not like about this case.
Those pictures that went round after his arrest. The ones were he looked so unkempt (when they made the DNA test) with his mouth open.
Even in the olden days kings that were captured were given a certain respect.
That man was a prestent weather good or bad, they should treat him as one.#
many Americans living in Iraq think it would have been better if the had shot him when they found him rather than this show they are doing now. And as a military man he should face firing squad and not be hanged like a pitte Tiff

A few fun facts:

1. Saddam will not be killed, no not as long as US remains in Iraq! They will continue appealing his case till the return of the 12th Imam of Ahmedinajad!

2. The sentence was meant to bolster the case of the Republicans in tomorrow's elections. A proof that democracy was(n't) working in Iraq.

Thought the appellate court has the final say? Once they decide the trial was up to standard and make judgement, it will be carried out within 30 days. I have a feeling they will lift the hanging (give him a life sentence probably) but again Saddam has other 10 charges pending.

If Saddam is innocent then Osa is definately not corrupt tongue
Re: Saddam Hussein Sentenced To Death By Hanging by gbolex(m): 8:01pm On Nov 07, 2006
The fact is that the death of Saddam will lead to the rise of one thousand Saddam. Besides since he was captured, has the killing in Iraq stopped? Bush himself is the Weapon of Mass Destruction. He is really interested in the Oil not the WMD he knows that the only thing that can stop him was to get rid of Saddam (am not saying Saddam is a saint). But there are some many leaders out there that are worse than Sad[b][/b]dam e.g Gorge Bush. The US claims that they have large quantities of oil in their reserve but there is nothing to show, we only see it on paper.
I really pity the Britain because Tony na MUMU all he knows is to follow Bush blindly.
All naija wey dey US come home o because Osama & Co are warming up for return leg.
(Sound Sultan has said it all ….Ti Ode ba le e pada wele o i.e if its getting hard out there plz come back home)

LONG LIVE SADDAM LONG LIVE IRAQ cheesy

Re: Saddam Hussein Sentenced To Death By Hanging by Grizzly(m): 3:43pm On Nov 08, 2006
EVery thing taken into consideration,
Saddam Hussein Al-Majid will hang before Christmas,
HE's been tried for crimes against humanity, and sentenced to hang,
If he appeals, which he definitely would, and the appeal obviously be thrown out,
Then lets say before 15th December, he'll visit the gallows,



If u must know, he still visits the court for other trials, which also carry the maximum sentence - DEATH.
He cant appeal against all of them,
He has been billed to hang, hang he must.
Re: Saddam Hussein Sentenced To Death By Hanging by debuz(m): 5:56pm On Nov 08, 2006
though he has ultimately condemned to death after a big time trial, he still has some days to appeal the verdict. So let wait and see, but is not yet over until is over, and don't forget "course of law is like a course of flowing stream" which is flexible.
