An Iraqi appeals court today upheld a death sentence for Saddam Hussein in a decision that could clear the way for Mr. Husseins execution within 30 days, Iraqi officials told news agencies.
The announcement came today as at least 20 people were killed and dozens were injured in bomb and mortar attacks in the capital.
The court was reviewing a Nov. 5 verdict in which Mr. Hussein and two of his top associates, Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti and Awad al-Bandar, were sentenced to death by hanging for their involvement in the arrest and killing of 148 Shiite men and boys in the town of Dujail in 1982.

For good measure al-sadr should be hanged right next to Saddam.
Line them both up, I'll bring the popcorn!
So long, Mr. Hussein.
Hopefully, formerly perky, Katie Couric will have time to get her black outfit back from the cleaners for that event.
Judge: "Where are the defendants?"
Guards: "He's hanging around here somewhere, your Honor."
Hope he strangles to death.
They ought to crank up Sadaams industrial shredder one more time.sarc
Wolf Blitzer doesn't have a shirttail long enough to soak up all the tears he'll be shedding.
Hang him by the lower neck [i.e. by the appendages]. Use broad elastic ribbon instead of a rope, so it does not cut in, and do not use the drop but lower him kindly and gently.
(singing) G-d rest ye terrorist gentlemen,
On a stout rope you sway,
Remember the blood of Iraqi folk,
Will be redeemed that day,
By Satan's power you ascended
To a throne on which you played,
Ooo-ooo tidings of rightous revenge,
Ooo-ooo tidings of rightous revenge!
LOL. Yes, she will have that tragic drawn look on her face to go with the solid black outfit, brainwashed twit that she is.
My husband, Vietnam veteran that he is, said the US Army should have just shot Hussein when they had the chance!
