BAGHDAD, Iraq — Saddam Hussein, the iron-fisted dictator who ruled Iraq for nearly a quarter of a century, was found guilty of crimes against humanity Sunday and sentenced to death by hanging.
The so-called Butcher of Baghdad, who was president of Iraq from 1979 until he was deposed by Coalition forces in April 2003, was convicted of the1982 killings of 148 Shiites in the city of Dujail
The visibly shaken former leader shouted "God is great!" as Iraq's High Tribunal announced his sentence.
And He's like, "Jeez, will you stop acting like you know me? Retard!"
From Lee, who doesn't care much for the Pres:
I’ll reiterate something I said a few weeks ago. For all his faults, for all his incompetence, and for all the other crap he’s done, this should stand as Bush’s greatest achievement, his true contribution to mankind. Saddam Hussein will soon face justice for his crimes, executed by the very people he oppressed for so long. The world wanted Saddam Hussein gone for a long time, but only one president actually did it.
Meanwhile, the Democrats moonbat base shows their true colors:
Saddam is a far better man than George W. Bush ever thought about being.
By the way, Ramsey Clarke, you suck the big one.
I love TIME magazine's take on the whole thing: that it doesn't matter: Saddam is Sentenced to Death, and Iraq Shrugs
Yup. Look at all the shrugging:
What liberal media??
Okay, and this one's just funny -- Saddam's half brother and former chief of intel:
"But... but I like my head where it is!"
