Ali Hassan al-Majid — known as “Chemical Ali”, former Iraqi Defense and Interior minister and notorious cousin of Saddam Hussein — was executed by hanging according to the Iraqi government. Chemical Ali was sentenced to death four times for genocide and crimes against humanity. He was sentenced to death for ordering the gas attack on the Kurdish town of Halabja in 1988 which killed thousands of innocent people. The news of his execution is certainly a big relief for survivors and victims of Saddam Hussein regime. He will be remembered as a brutal killer and his soul will certainly burn in hell.

What’s the difference between him and Bush, Blair, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz? Only the country in which they live. These guys were responsible for 1000s of deaths, too. As the Bakota of Congo say, “If you do evil, you must expect evil.”
