Saddam sentenced to death

Saddam Hussein has been found guilty of genocide and sentenced to death by hanging. That’s good news, but how long will it take to carry out the sentence? An Iraqi prime minister says he doesn't think the death sentence will be any later than the end of January. Bye-bye Saddam.

Under Iraqi law, Saddam will be granted an appeal process. A 9-judge panel will review his case to see if he has any grounds for an appeal. Since he doesn't, he'll be promptly hanged, that's the process. A trial, a speedy appeal and then he'll be off to his eternal desert sand nap.

How do we get that system in this country? From start to finish....from verdict to hanging ... all in less than 90 days.

Yet in this country, some people wait on death row for 20, sometimes 25 years before they're executed. Then we go through this lengthy process of lethal injection with witnesses and all that nonsense. Looks like we could learn something from the Iraqis here.

The only question left then I guess is whether or not Saddam's execution will be televised. Perhaps on pay per view.

I think they should put it on pay per view and take all the proceeds and use it to help pay for the war. I would pay $100.00 to watch the butcher of Baghdad dangle from a rope.

C’mon…you know you would too, or am I the only sick twisted freak.
