You may know a lot about Saddam Hussein. Or, you may not. You should know that today he was sentenced to death by the Iraqi High Tribunal for crimes against humanity. A number of appeals are likely to follow, but if the death sentence is carried out the execution will be a hanging. Weird that it "happened" to coincide with the U.S. midterm elections? I'm no conspiracy theorist (lie!) but it just seems a little too convenient if you ask me!
What else is convenient? That you have this blog to learn from. For instance, here's another fun piece of learning: in addition to being a ruthless dictator, Saddam is afraid of germs. Germs! Those tiny little things! Who would have thought.
