Saddam sentenced to hang

From CNN.com: Iraqis react with joy, anger to Hussein death sentence

Saddam Hussein is being sentenced to hang for his crimes. I didn't think anyone did that anymore.

It's not that I'm not happy at this - this is one of the few people I think REALLY needs to die - but it's kinda odd this happens only two days before the elections, hmm?

Besides, if Saddam can be sentenced to hang for being responsible for the deaths of 200-300 thousand Iraqis over twenty years, one wonders how our leaders and troops could be held culpable for killing over 600,000 in about three.

Let's hope we're not next. And let's hope that Saddam's loyalists don't come after us next, either. That's about the last goddamn thing we need.
