Sadam, payback time

Saddam Hussein is a modern day Genghis Khan, Stalin or Hitler. Like all of these mother fuckers, he caused big, big trouble.

Today in Iraq, Saddam was sentenced to death by hanging, and there were jubilations in Shiaa areas and angry demonstrations in his home town of Tikrit. No one is debating today wether or not they support capital punishment (not the best day for this debate - btw I dont support capital punishment, even for Saddam.)

What will happen next? An appeal will be heard within a month. If the death sentence is upheld, it must be carried out within 30 days.

Execution is by hanging, although Saddam has asked for a firing squad.

It is unclear whether he can be executed before the other trial he's on (Anfal trial) concludes.

In addition, he may face other charges relating, for instance, to the suppression of the 1991 Shia and Kurdish uprisings or the wars with Iran and Kuwait.

There were some questions raised about the fairness of the trial, but surely it was fairer than courts held under his regime.

Also, the verdict comes very conveniently a few days before the US votes in mid-term elections. Nice one!

However, alot of us Arabs are encouraged that our dictators (and members of their regimes) who terrorise the shit out of us, can end up losing their heads just like it happened with the former Romanian dictator Nicolai Ceaucescu when he faced the firing squad on December 25, 1989. So, to all the rest of the scumbags who are still in power: watch out, you could be next.

  • We hope the same for all Arab tyrants,though death is really a very merciful punishment comparing to what they are doing.

  • That is interesting that you are against the death penalty Zab.

    Once again you show yourself to be a very unique and special Egyptian! Where did you get your progressive, liberal and modern views? You guys, BP and SM included, need to be screaming at the top of your lungs in Egypt.

    I wish you guys the very best and I hope all you guys stay safe! They threw that other brave Egyptian blogger, Abdel Kareem, in jail for blogging his views...
