Being hanged 1,000,000 times would still not be enough for what these scumbags deserve. Yet, justice has triumphed.

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.

This must be a miscarriage of justice - Iraq never had WMDs!

Right?

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.

If not, maybe they should ask the Texas Rangers for some help. It used to be the Rangers threw a good neck-tie party.

AP calls the use of chemical weapons on civilians and villages as "scorched earth". Do these people have a moral compass? Are they really so unwilling to make a judgment against vicious mass murderers? Sadly, yes.

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 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.

Gosh, I hope there aren't any "mishaps" like when Barzan Ibrahim, Saddam’s half brother and former intelligence chief "lost his head" during his hanging. That would be a shame. A real shame.

Iraq doesn’t need to hang evil people or to have an electric chair. They need electric bleachers. All of those who use car bombs to kill masses of people should be made to sit on these bleachers. Mass murder is still being used against the Iraqi people. Their government must kill these killers expeditiously; they should be using special courts and summarily executing anyone involved in planting bombs designed to kill mass numbers of people.

Yep, a slow, painful, agonizing death, exactly like his victims suffered, would be much more appropriate for this creep.....

Ahhhhhhh But remember, death is only the start of his journey into eternal damnation. My blood runs a little bit cold when I think of the heat he's about to face and eternity is a very looooooonnnnnng time. Makes me even more thankful for my salvation this Sunday morning.

That's nice.

Hey, tonight on the TCM channel is the movie Abbott and Costello Meets Frankenstein, and after that, Laurel and Hardy in Block-Heads. Gotta see that. Let me see the tv guide for anything else good...

Death by hanging should be the penalty for treason and a few other crimes in the United States. The first “candidates” would be all Congressional Democrats.

Chemical Ali has been in custody, and will swing from the rope.

Perhaps you may have him confused with Tariq Aziz?

This guy is also in custody, "suffering" from heart problems, diabetes, and hopefully a number of other extremely painful ailments.

With any luck, he'll survive long enough to swing from the rope.

We should make every effort to keep these murderers alive. Just long enough so that they know exactly when and how they are going to die...unlike their victims.

Somehow that is not enough. He needs to die choking and gasping in a chemical cloud that burns his eyes and skin and takes a long, long time to do the deed.

If Iraq survives and becomes a democracy with its oil riches, we will see them going after War Criminals around the world, who aided and abetted Saddam and al Qaeda serial killers during the 1990’s and this decade.

People like Pelosi, Reid, Murtha, Kennedy, Kerry, Durban, Dood, Boxer, Fineswhine, Moore, Carter, Clintoon and the controllers of our MSM might wake up some morning in Iraq awaiting War Crimes trials for what they enabled Saddam and al Qaeda to do to innocent Iraqis.

Iraq might have allies from Israel and Lebannon helping them to round up these bastards.

No it doesn't. Even death by lethal injection is not befitting. How about injecting dishwasher liquid through an IV drip attached to his arm.. or some other chemical that will not kill him right away ?

Hangin' is too good for him.

Use Sarin Nerve gas on him in minimum quantities for a couple of weeks each day, as he did to the Kurds.

That’s still not cruel enough for the likes of him. He needs to pay the ultimate price, a punishment so vile that it borders on inhumane, a fate worse that death...

We should force him to have sex with Cindy Sheehan.

You are comparing apples to oranges here. There IS a difference between certain death and trying to prevent death.
