Saddam Hussein sentenced to death

Saddam Hussein has been sentenced to death. Well, did anyone seriously believe he was going to be given community service? He couldn’t have phoned a friend like one Donald Rumsfeld and asked him for better legal intervention. The trial was a foregone conclusion. The US group Human Rights Watch say that Saddam Hussein never got a fair trial. That’s pretty much obvious as his lawyers kept getting bumped off. The Bush administration will be desperate for a speedy execution so that his secrets will go with him and how these implicate past/present US administrations. In reality, they are up to their necks in it.

Oh and I am just waiting for some American official to say that this execution will act as “closure” to the Iraqi people. As if.
