Saddam should have been executed two years ago so I am glad it’s happening soon. It will be the end to Baathists’ hopes for a Saddam comeback and the beginning of the Iraqi governments’ ability to govern. The first act of unity of any democratic government should be executing the dictator/madman who enforced a 35 year reign of terror on his people, thereby, providing justice to them.

The Iraqi government is “anxious to get Saddam’s execution done” and that it is likely to be carried out before the New Year — perhaps even within the next 24 hours, a U.S. military official told FOX News.

This official said American forces are now in the process of finalizing the former Iraqi dictator’s transfer to Iraqi custody and to the location where he would be executed. Several U.S. officials said they are not ruling out the possibility that Saddam will be put to death as early as Friday.

Iraq’s highest court on Tuesday rejected Saddam’s appeal against his conviction and death sentence for the killing of 148 Shiites in the northern city of Dujail in 1982. The court said the former dictator should be hanged within 30 days.

Good Riddance to the Mother of All Dictators. May he rot in hell.
