Saddam Hussein sentenced to death by hanging

World events

Saddam Hussein is sentenced to a death penalty through hanging, for the main reason, crimes against humanity, including its totalitarian character. On November, 5th Hussein has been recognized guilty on business about murder 148 shiits in place Shiite town of Dujail in 1982 after the attack accomplished there on a presidential train. The court has recognized also guilty on business about massacre and has sentenced to life imprisonment of former vice-president of Iraq Taha Yasin Ramadana.
According to Saddam’s opinion, this punishment is humiliating. As a military criminal he considers a bullet more correctly in this situation.
The reasons of this sanction are surely political first of all. American republicans are being blamed for the Iraq war, and this verdict could serve as an advantage for them, on the intermediate congressional elections, which will take place on the next day.
The legal procedure on Saddam took place more than a year. The case was investigated by 5 judges, which were replacing one another for several reasons. The 3 lawyers of Saddam Hussein were killed.

Even though the verdict seems to be very cruel, some political analysts consider that Saddam could be amnestied.
