Tariq Aziz

I know that this article isn't really business related, but I found it to be interesting, having served over seas myself.  According to CNN Tariq Aziz, who was Saddam Hussein's top diplomat, is set to be executed next year.  Saad Yousif al-Muttalibi said "It will definately take place and it will take place after Americans leave Iraq."  Hopefully he means this, and it is not a way for them to get us to leave, just so they can start building their Army again.  The Iraqi government did however enstate a new law that would require the death penalty be ratified within fifteen days of it being handed down.  Aziz was captured by US forces in April of 2003.  A lot of the Iraqi citizens were shocked at this because he served his country for more than 22 years and he even turned himself into the US Forces.
