Saddam Convicted
November 05, 2006















"Saddam Hussein and two other men were convicted and sentenced Sunday to death by hanging for war crimes in the 1982 killings of 148 people in the town of Dujail, as the former leader, trembling, shouted "God is great!" "{More}

Although I am against capital punishment, this son of a bitch had it coming and the world deserves to be rid of him cos it will be a better place after he is gone. But the problems in Iraq will just begin.

    izzi. me too... they finally got rid of the dictator and now they r killing each other for authority and land.

    noush. maybe he did control them but he was a tyrant. People didnt obey him out of love and respect, but out of fear. Moreover, dont forget his wars against neighboring countries and his invasion of kuwait. He deserves to disappear.

    Revenge aside. Whether he is guilty or not guilty aside. This trail was a sham. The defense’s questions concerning the legality of the trail were never answered by the prosecution, international laws were violated. we are all educated human beings here, until when will we be treated as illiterate Mongols by the west? until when will we suffer these shams? Where is the democracy in Iraq that Bush promised the Iraqis? Was this trial democratic? I sometimes wish I wasn't an Arab; we really deserve everything that is happening to us; because we are simply idiots, no wonder no body respects us in the west. For the first time in my life I really wish i wasn't Arab.

    "Many critics have dismissed the trial as a form of victors' justice, given the close attention the US has paid to it.

    Lawyers for Saddam Hussein have also accused the government of interfering in the proceedings - a complaint backed by US group Human Rights Watch.

    And the former leader's lawyers have attacked the timing of the planned verdict, which comes days before the US votes in mid-term elections.

    US President George W Bush's Republican Party is at risk of losing control of Congress in part because of voter dissatisfaction over its handling of the Iraq conflict. In a televised speech on Saturday, Nouri Maliki, Iraq's Shia Arab prime minister, said he hoped Saddam Hussein would get "what he deserves" for "crimes against the Iraqi people".

    "Before the session began, one of Saddam's lawyers, former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, was ejected from the courtroom after handing the judge a memorandum in which he called the trial a travesty."

    So go ahead and celebrate fonzy, enjoy it. We all want justice, but not like this.

    izzi. the proceedings were all a farse from day one, be it how saddam disrespected the judges, how the lawyers kept getting killed, how the americans interfered, and so on. But the fact remains that he was a tyrant who was picking on weak defenseless people and he did commit the massacre he was accused of. Looking at the trial alone, yes i agree it was a joke. And i dont approve of capital punishment, but i do approve in putting this tyrant away from all humans around. America is also a tyrant and Bush is a terrorist, but they do it in a clever way that nobody can prove what they r doing. Saddam on the other hand killed, murdered, and destroyed in the open. You think those people he murdered were treated fairly? You think they got a free trial when many were buried alive? You think Kuwaiti people were able to defend themselves? Saddam deserves no fair trial, the whole trial was a show, the result was know from day one. Like i said, am against capital punishment but he had to go. And for the record, i am not celebrating; the biggest tyrant (the US) is still out there and there is no stopping it. As for those educated journalists, those are only a few, the majority of the people are blinded by the anti-iraqi media.

    Excuse me fonzy but every person in the world, be him jack the ripper, deserves a fair trail, because that is the difference between barbarism and civilization. Today, not only sadam was sentenced, but all of the Arabs as well. There are no exceptions in democracy, a false trail is false and his sentencing is illegal. Had he been sentenced to death by a fair trail you would not hear a word from me. if Iraq is beginning its new era of democracy like this then ya haram Iraq... and stop saying that u r against capital punishment, u are either for it or against it there is no grey in here. Finally, I think we both know, Bush committed massacres far worse than those of Sadam, and we are not going to see him on trail any time soon, at least not during this lifetime, but believe me, history will put him on trial.

    izzi, yes everyone deserves a fair trial. but he was guilty before it even started. it was all a show. those that deserve a fair trial are those who have to be proven to be guilty using evidence and eye witnesses. This guy committed crimes in front of thousands of people and told them to shut up or face the same fate!! For any murderer, they need to gather evidence and prove he did it. Saddam has always been guilty. Again I say the trial was a joke. But he is guilty and deserved it. Not about democracy, but the result was obvious from day one. And yes I am against capital punishment, that is not grey I AM AGAINST IT. Saddam has been on the throne for decades and his turn finally came. Bush and his followers, and Olmert and his israeli government, will all face the same fate. Maybe not in our lifetime but they will.

    And by the way, Sadam did not invade kuwait, America did.
