Iraqi tribunal sentences Saddam to hang

The Republicans will be doing the 'happy dance' all over the television today. Touting this as proof of some sort of victory in Iraq. Victory? We've killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqi's - Saddam has been sentenced for killing 148! Iraqi's are now killing eachother in a country that is falling apart because of our actions. After Saadam is hanged, our troops will still be stuck there, the violence will continue and Osama bin Laden -the man responsible for 9/11 - remains at large. The only benefit this story translates to for the Republican Party is that it removes the stories from the front page which remind us what hypocrites, crooks and desperate men the Republican Party is made up of.

Saddam Hussein was convicted and sentenced Sunday to hang for crimes against humanity in the 1982 killings of 148 people in a single Shiite town, as the ousted leader, trembling and defiant, shouted "God is great!"

As he, his half brother and another senior official in his regime were convicted and sentenced to death by the Iraqi High Tribunal, Saddam yelled out, "Long live the people and death to their enemies. Long live the glorious nation, and death to its enemies!" Later, his lawyer said the former dictator had called on Iraqis to reject sectarian violence and refrain from revenge against U.S. forces.
