The death sentence imposed on Saddam Hussein from his first trial, has been confirmed the other day.
Hardly surprising, since neither the ruling party in Iraq nor the current administration in Washington can afford to leave him alive. After all, he knows who supplied him with his money and weapons.
The execution, despite the fact that his current trial has not yet ended, is scheduled for within 30 days.
You never know, Iraq may still be in one piece when it is carried out, any longer and a unified Iraq would be highly unlikely.
Mission accomplished, as someone once said.
