Sunday Sign of Hope November 5th 2006

Saddam Hussein sentenced to hang

From National Post:

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.

(to the tune of Camptown Races) "Someone's gonna hang real soon...Saddam... Saddam."

Have to say, I'm surprised that he told his people to NOT retaliate to the US troops. Learned his lesson? Prolly not, just trying to make himself look better before the rope swings and so does he.

Now that's what I call a real sign of hope!...if anything, we're killing everybody off in the middle east, even if it's one person at a time
