Saddam To Die "Within 30-Days"

That ruling from Iraq's highest court upheld the death sentence against the tyrant who killed hundreds of thousands. His lawyer whines:

Saddam Hussein's defence lawyer Khalil al-Dulaimi told the AFP news agency that the court's verdict "was expected".

"We were not at all surprised, as we are convinced that this has been - 100% - a political trial," he said.

At least he was permitted a trial, unlike the thousands he murdered and buried in mass graves without even letting their families know where.

It appears as if it will happen with no notice and will be over before we hear of it:

The BBC's Peter Greste in Baghdad says the execution is likely to provoke an angry response from Saddam Hussein's supporters, so it is understood that it will be carried out at a private time and in a private place.
