Iraqis are celebrating the news that their once brutal dicator will hang for his crimes against humanity. Saddam Hussein was convicted and sentenced Sunday to hang for crimes against humanity in the 1982 killings of 148 people in a single Shiite town, as the ousted leader, trembling and defiant, shouted "God is great!" Saddam wanted to die by firing squad, but unfortunately he won't get his request. He will now suffer the next best thing-- death by hanging. Saddam will have the right to appeal, but that process is exected to only take a few weeks and it's not expected to save his life. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki hailed the conviction in a televised address, saying that the sentence was "not a sentence on one man, but a sentence against all the dark period of his rule".
