Finally, Tariq Aziz gets some punishment for his crimes.

He was...on a different charge. Now he's got two death sentences on him.
Time to get out the rope.
Aziz is in his 70’s now and is also in bad health, so he’ll probably die in prison
That still does not make it right
They should get the same as Saddam
Knowing you will die next thursday is a lot different than knowing you wil die of old age
