Breaking on all major networks: Saddam has lost his appeal and according to Iraqi Law he must die within a month.
An Iraqi appeals court has upheld the death sentence imposed on Saddam Hussein at his first trial, Iraq's national security adviser said Tuesday.
"The appeals court approved the verdict to hang Saddam," Mouwafak al-Rubaie told The Associated Press.
On Nov. 5, an Iraqi court sentenced Saddam to the gallows for the 1982 killings of 148 people from a Shiite Muslim town after an attempt on his life
The appeals court decision must be ratified by President Jalal Talabani and Iraq's two vice presidents. Talabani opposes the death penalty but has in
the past deputized a vice president to sign an execution order on his behalf — a substitute that was legally accepted.
Once the decision is ratified, Saddam and other co-defendants sentenced to death at the trial would be hanged within 30 days.

Now the question is, will this increase the violence in Iraq or help to turn the tide toward peace?
I also wonder if they are going to telivise his execcution? Personally I would not want to watch it but I am sure man Iraqis who have lost loved ones
