It has been a couple of days before the celebrated execution of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and there have been separate reactions from different parts of the world. Some sectors have condemned the decisions while others have heaved a sigh of relief citing that justice has been served for the many people who were victims of Husseinâ€™s reign of terror.
A lot of people are questioning the manner to which the trial was conducted. Some groups were surprised at the speed to which the death sentence for Hussein was carried out. The fast verdict drew various reactions all over the world, especially the dictatorâ€™s hometown.
This issue has created more issues at the moment and it will take some time before it officially dies down. The United States, particularly the Bush administration, has been receiving a lot of criticism on having a hand on the speedy decision. This is due to the fact that the United States was the main benefactor of casualties, notably the World Trade Center Attacks of September 11, 2001.
