Chemical Ali becomes fertilizer

January 25, 2010

This genuinely brightens my day: Ali Hassan al-Majid, known to the world as “Chemical Ali” for his use of nerve gas against Kurds in Iraq, has been hanged:

Majid, an enforcer in Saddam Hussein’s regime and his cousin, had earlier been sentenced to death four times for genocide and crimes against humanity.

In January, he was sentenced to death for ordering the gas attack on the Kurdish town of Halabja in 1988.

It is believed that about 5,000 people died in the attack.

Hanging will suffice, though, to be honest, I would have released him naked in the middle of Halabja and told him to start running.

Rot in Hell, you son of a bitch.

Now at room temperature.
