Bring a rope, boys. SUPPORTERS of Saddam Hussein have warned of a "firestorm" of violence if he is found guilty of crimes against humanity today and sentenced to death.
Iraqi officials ordered the closure of Baghdad's international airport in a massive security clampdown ahead of the verdict. If convicted, Saddam could face hanging.
Nouri al-Maliki, the prime minister, went on television to appeal for calm last night. He called on Iraqis to celebrate a guilty vercict in a way that "does not risk their lives." He added: "We hope that the verdict will give this man what he deserves for the crimes he committed against the Iraqi people." Maliki has previously said that Saddam should hang. Hey, Saddam! Enjoy being turned on a spit and slowly cooked for all eternity, you worthless piece of excrement.
The verdict is in:
Saddam Hussein: Death by Hanging, along with his freak half-brother. Rot in hell, you bastards.
