We learn that world opinion is divided on the Saddam Hussein sentence.
I call bullshit.
A ruthless, murderous dictator has sat in the docks, been tried by his own people and convicted in the harsh spotlight of world media attention.
I note that the courts that tried Saddam held jurisdiction in the same land that gave us Hammurabi's Code, arguably the first legal code committed to writing. The Iraqi people have a long and honorable legal history. Through their courts, they have decided that he should hang. Hanging also has a long and honorable history as a way of dealing with tyrants.
For myself, I think he should be returned to the septic tank in which he was found, have a toilet installed, gather a group of Kurds and feed them nothing but Taco Bell until the toilet backs up. But then, world opinion would probably be divided over that sentence, too.
