Sic semper tyrannis

From KurdishMedia.com comes this man on the street report about the reaction in Sulemani to the death of Saddam's sons.

This is a milestone in the history of Kurdistan. On this sunny Wednesday morning, in the Sulemani City Market, one can see the joy and the Happiness on peopleís faces. People were greeting each other, as if it was a nation day. The death of tyrantís sons has made everyone joyful.

Here's one of the reactions:

Roopak Hama Saeed, a university lecturer:

"No one is as joyful as I am at the moment! That is because Saddam has lost his two sons. In early 1980s, he killed two of my nephews for no reason. I am just sorry that they [Uday and Qusai] died without much suffering. I wanted them to suffer for long time and I wanted them to be humiliated."
