Saddam Hussein is dead

Saddam Hussein is dead. Killed by his country for his crimes against his people, the Kurds, the Marsh Arabs and those others whom he killed at will.

It must be noted that for many years the US supplied Saddam with the weapons and chemical warfare agents that he used in these crimes.

Hanging the 69-year-old former dictator of Iraq solves nothing and only closes another chapter in Iraq's bloody history.

The violence will still go on and Iraqis, Americans, British and others will continue to die on the streets; victims of the hatred of others who have been allowed to rise to the top in the chaos following the invasion of Iraq.

Saddam Hussein should have been sent to rot in prison for the rest of his life. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth is poor justice and only condones further violence as a means to an end.

Saddam is gone but the hatred he espoused towards others lives on.
