Chemical Ali Sentenced to Death Again

From our friends at WorldThreats. Saddam Hussein's cousin, Ali Hassan al-Majid, infamous for his role in the Halabja massacre, was sentenced to death again. This time it was for his crushing of the Shi'ite intifada in 1991.

Majid, Saddam Hussein’s cousin, attempted his own theatrics, but the judge would have no part of it:

Judge Khalifa said Mr. Majid was guilty of crimes against humanity. Mr. Majid remained calm, but Mr. Ani shouted: “I welcome death if it is for Iraq, for pan-Arabism and for the Baath. Down with the American and Persian occupation!”

The judge responded, “Shut up.”

Fitting words.

Now, I oppose the death penalty, but if anyone deserves it, it's him. Keep the bastard alive so he can see the progress and success of Kurdistan, despite the malevolent and atrocious acts he leveled against it. Let him watch the Kurdish people become more than Saddam could ever do. Let him watch as Iraq and Kuwait (which he was installed governor during the Iraqi occupation) rise.

Biji Kordestan!
