It's All About The Ladies


The women of Iraq want Saddam dead:


Najaf - Around 100 women dressed in black marched on Sunday in Najaf, the holy Shiite city south of Baghdad, to demand that ex-president Saddam Hussein be put to death.

"No to an adjournment, yes to the death penalty," chanted the women, clad in black abayas as they made their way from the school of religious studies down the city's main thoroughfare.
The women carried banners which read:


"The cries of martyrs echo still, we demand the death of Saddam Hussein," as well as photos of victims of his regime.
