I was told that he was sentenced to death by hanging? Is this true? If so, do you agree with that decision?

Yes he did get sentenced to hang, which his defense is appealing but it is very unlikely they will overtun the verdict. Saddam has pretty much condemned himself through his statements during the trial. Do I agree with the decision and the punishment? Yes. He murdered many, many people, mostly of his own nation. He deserves to be punished accordingly. Someone pointed out that hanging seems brutal. Yes I agree it does seem like a horrible way to die, and I am sure it is. That is the difference in some nations laws versus the laws of more Western nations, such as the U.S, Canada, Britain, Austraila, etc .. I feel sorry for Saddam. He was terribly misguided in his upbringing and misled many others to think like he does. However, he should have considered the consequences of his actions before he took them

As long as they line up some of the Israeli war crims such as Sharom as well. no problems.(Of course that will never happen since they can do as they like including making atom bombs.) There have been israeli terrorists from long ago(Such as Rabin) and nothing was ever done there!!!
