Saddam Guilty

1201 - Just heard it on the news, Saddam is guilty and the sentence is death. I'll post updates as the day goes on. Now where'd I put my kevlar...

1230 - First sound of gunfire. Sounds pretty close.

1315 - Initial celebratory gunfire didn't last long, though I'd be willing to bet that it was only the first round. I bet that when night sets in there will be a lot more, you can't really see tracers so well during the day.

1430 - Still pretty quiet, haven't heard any gunfire in the last couple hours.

1500 - Ambassador Khalizad releases a statement on the verdict. Read it here.

1800 - Night fell about a half-hour ago and still no major gunfire. A few pops every now and then, but nothing unusual.

2215 - I've heard a few explosions over the last few hours, but nothing that I'd say is extraordinary. On my end it seems like the heightened security did it's job. Now we just have to see how long until the die-hard knuckleheads start shooting again, but I'm willing to bet that following the verdict that a good portion of the Saddam loyalists will call it quits. I'm hoping that the appeal will be handled quickly and that we'll see this guy swinging from the nearest palmtree sometime soon.

Didn't see it 'til I turned the 'puter on this a.m. Quite a wake up call. It hit him hard, but I don't think he'll really believe it until the noose is around his neck.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

This is what the clansfolk in Tikrit are saying:

"By our souls, by our blood we sacrifice for you Saddam" and "Saddam your name shakes America."

yeaaaaa, I just went to ITM and followed the link over to PJ to read Mo's reaction.
Now of course there will be an automatic appeal, buth ther is still the Anfal "campagian" murders to try him for, he will be found guilty and sentenced to death for that too..... i for one though, even though i would like to see him tried on all the things he subjected thepeople to, it is best to get on with the hanging now. the sooner he is dead the bettter off we will ALL be.

What they need to do is hang him tomorrow, try him in absentia, and when they're done with all the trials, convene the moot and read the verdict.

Now, a song.
