Swing On the Bell, Nell!

Let's hope appeals against Saddam Hussein's death sentence don't drag on forever. Violence, no doubt, will increase as Hussein's supporters vent their anger at the decision against Hussein and three of his henchmen, one of whom is Hussein's half-brother, also sentenced to death along with him. A defiant Hussein was ignored by the court's judges during his tirade. Those fighting now after the court decision are only trying to save their own skins, anyway...Hussein is past history to them...

Under the new Iraqi system, Hussein has the right to lodge an appeal, far more leniency than he gave his victims in the mass murder of Kurds, Shia's and those slain in 1982 which this trial covered. No matter what happens, Hussein will not escape his punishment.

    Yep, I agree with that one as do a lot of Australian Iraquis. One guy (a hairdresser) was giving free haircuts today, he was so happy with the decision.

  2. Yes, I saw him on the news last night, Robyn. There was a lot of celebration going on in this country by Iraqis happy at the proposed demise of Hussein. He won't be missed!
