Saddam Hussein’s cousin, “Chemical Ali”, has been sentenced to death in Iraq - again - along with another Baath party official. Here is the story:
Although, as I have posted before, I have issues with how the death penalty is administered in the United States, I can’t object to the death sentences faced by “Chemical Ali” and others who perpetrated numerous atrocities in Iraq. Call me a hypocrite, I’m ok with that. Bon voyage “Chemical Ali”…
