Chief prosecutor Jaafar al-Moussawi called for the death penalty for Saddam Hussein for crimes against humanity during attacks on Shiite civilians in the 1980s. What do you think?


"This is unfair. The man made an honest mistake: he simply thought, when he killed all those people, that he would never have to face the consequences."

"I'd just hate for this to be one of those cases where, years later, DNA evidence surfaces linking the mass murder to some other dictator."

Thomas Dawes • Systems Analyst

"All this death-penalty speculation is premature. We haven't even heard Saddam's closing arguments yet."
