    Abstract

    Like Saddam Hussein, there are others who should be charged for war crimes in Iraq. THE news that onetime strongman Saddam Hussein had been condemned to death by an Iraqi court hardly comes as a surprise. Anyone proven guilty of committing crimes against humanity cannot be allowed to go unpunished. Reportedly, in this case, witnesses testified how Saddam massacred their relatives and fellow villagers in northern Iraq during the 1988 Anfal campaign. Again, in 1982, he ordered another killing in Dujail. The judgement that Saddam is to die by hanging was received with mixed reactions, given the dire state of affairs in Iraq. Under the circumstances, there are those who long for the days of Saddam’s rule because, ironically as it seems, they could enjoy some form of security then, as compared to today.
