Kangaroo Court will hang Skippy
No shock that a Court appointed by an occupying force who invaded illegally has found Saddam guilty and will hang him. It’s not that Saddam is innocent, he is a despicable monster who made many innocent human beings suffer, but he was a despicable monster who made innocent human beings suffer that America supported and backed throughout most of the 1980s - those who allowed this monster to kill should also be on trial.
As for the punishment itself, hanging Saddam will make him a martyr in a culture defined by a landscape of martyrs.
Saddam sees death as 'sacrifice'
Former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein has said he is ready to die as a "sacrifice" for Iraq, urging his countrymen to unite against enemies. In a letter written from his prison cell, Saddam Hussein said his death would make him a "true martyr". The former leader could be hanged on any day over the next four weeks, after an appeal against his execution failed. The sentence is for killings in the town of Dujail in the 1980s. A trial for a second case continues. "I sacrifice myself. If God wills it, he will place me among the true men and martyrs," the former leader wrote in the letter.
