Saddam Hussein Sentenced To Death



Did you see this in the headlines? Wow, that's probably great news to a lotta folks.

Hussein "was a brutal, evil dictator" who is "getting the punishment that he deserves," Sen. Charles E. Schumer (N.Y.), who runs the Senate Democratic campaign arm, said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." But, he added, "I don't think his conviction makes much of a difference in this election, even though it's a very good thing that it happened."

"Saddam Hussein's trial is a milestone in the Iraqi people's efforts to replace the rule of a tyrant with the rule of law," Bush told reporters before leaving Texas for campaign stops here and in Topeka, Kan. "It's a major achievement for Iraq's young democracy and its constitutional government."

"The man who once struck fear in the hearts of Iraqis had to listen to free Iraqis recount the acts of torture and murder that he ordered against their families and against them," he said. "Today, the victims of this regime have received a measure of the justice which many thought would never come."

I was the right verdict & I'm glad Iraqi courts did it. I was a little worried if they would or not.

You and me both. The thing is that he'll be killed way more humanely than his victims were.
