'Chemical Ali' to Hang

I wonder how many cellphone videos we'll see of this.

Iraq's 'Chemical Ali' sentenced to hang
Two decades after Iraq's military laid waste to Kurdish villages, the Iraqi High Tribunal on Sunday sentenced Ali Hassan al-Majid, known as "Chemical Ali," and two others to death for their roles in the bloody campaign against the restive ethnic minority.

Al-Majid, a cousin of executed former President Saddam Hussein, was convicted of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes for ordering army and security services to use chemical weapons in an offensive said to have killed some 180,000 people during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war.
Of course, as the left continually points out, they never had any WMD in Iraq, so obviously there's a big mixup here.
