ALARM - Genocide Kurdish: death penalty by hanging for Ali the chemical one
BAGHDAD - Ali the Chemical one, cousin of Saddam Hussein, was condemned Sunday to the death penalty by hanging by the High Iraqi penal court for the genocide having cost the life some 182.000 Kurds in 1988.
AP News Alert
An Iraqi court has sentenced Saddam Hussein's cousin known as "Chemical Ali" to death by hanging for his role in the 1980s scorched-earth campaign against Kurds.
Being hanged 1,000,000 times would still not be enough for what these scumbags deserve. Yet, justice has triumphed.
Borat say: “Nice. I like!”
Chemical Ali deserves to hang. I for one will not shed any tears on his behalf. Let us all hope sentence is carried out swiftly, so that the world can quickly forget about this human nitemare.
I hope and assume this execution is going to be carried out by
Kurds. They will do it more professionaly (and hopefully with better video quality) than the Shia executioners last time.
Texas necktie party in Iraq PING
This must be a miscarriage of justice - Iraq never had WMDs!
I mean, that’s what I hear the box in my living room say!
It wouldn’t lie, would it?
I didn’t even know Chemical Ali was in custody.
Last i heard he was on the run and had some form of cancer.
That’s Izzat Al-Duri. He is probably hiding in Syria and is regarded as key organizer of the (Baathist) Terrorists in Iraq. There have been several unconfirmed reports of his death due to cancer.
> I hope and assume this execution is going to be carried out by Kurds.
If not, maybe they should ask the Texas Rangers for some help. It used to be the Rangers threw a good neck-tie party.
Another one soon to meet his 72 virgins.
I have advice for a 2nd tier GOP Presidential candidate. If you want to break from the pack, start going on a rampage against the American media, against Leftwing college professors and against insane political correctness.
The MSM hates you anyways and they can't really attack you on 1st Amendment grounds, when the Libs are out there trying to "legislatively fix" talk radio. Someone go on the attack against the media and defend our troops, defend our people and defend our country.
I am not deeply sadden by the verdict.
I wonder if we was surprised by the sentence? I read somewhere that a few of them were completely stunned that they would be hanged for their roles in the deaths of so many.
