If you want to make a political commentary, try an online forum or write a blog. Wikipedia isn't the place for it. Don't be a jackass and disrupt articles here, please, for your own amusement - it's irritating.

Could people please stop adding un-sourced and un-substantiated claims to the "Criticisms" section, if you have a vaild compliant please source it as per the Wikipedia guidlines.

Again, would people stop reverting to a version of the page which is unsourced, the rules are that the page should only contain sourced material, not comments made up by people who dont like the judgement, please use acreddited sources as per the Wiki rules.

rewrite of this needed[edit]

I've removed the following:


The statement at the end of the article indicating American and international armed forces as an occupying force lends an air of negative bias to the article. I would suggest changing the article to characterize American and international armed forces as peacekeepers or security forces.

Occupying force is NPOV. See military occupation. It's widely used in Wikipedia.

While I agree an arguement could be made that the movement of the sentencing could be linked to the elections, I question the extrapolation that that means the judicial branch is just a lacky of the legistlative branch. Verbage is way too harsh. (I do not have a wikipedia sn).

Constitution of IRAK 2005[edit]

Hi, I've noticed that there was some vandalism in the preambule of the iraki constitution. Could you plase check it out?


Could some add this? There appears to be some dispute between the Iraqi officials and US officials over when the execution needs to take place. [1] I think this is important because although strictly speaking, this isn't part of the trial, it is likely to be seen by some as evidence that the US has undue influence.

I would like to see a vote on merging this with the execution of saddam hussein page, to create a Trial and Execution of Saddam Hussein page.. thanks! Crocitto49 21:56, 19 January 2007 (EST)

No, 2 different things totally! Clearly the trial and penalty of Saddam Hussein should be combined. But honestly who cares. this whole article is horrible, and should be deleted.Mantion (talk) 01:55, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Death sentence for Ramadan[edit]

I have the news that Taha Yassin Ramadan was sentenced to death by hanging on February 12, 2007. Here's the link if you want to know more about it, okay? --Angeldeb82 23:59, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

International reactions[edit]

This section is mostly garbage. -- (talk) 17:29, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

First hearing[edit]

What was the first hearing for? The trial began 19 October 2005, so what was the purpose of the hearing on 1 July 2004? This not mentioned anywhere in the article. howcheng {chat} 07:02, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

lead section[edit]

"Saddam Hussein was executed by hanging on December 30, 2006. With his death, all other charges were dropped." Am I the only person to notice the pun there, sorry to be off topic, but I wanted to point it out (part of me is saying that we shouldn't have puns in something like this, it isn't appropriate) ConconJondor talk contribs 20:03, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
