That would be the Iraqi court that sentenced Saddam to death.

Has anyone heard about the G8- summit meeting which took place in Germany? It has been protested very much. If it was near me I would also have gone there.

The Iraqi government really wanted him dead. Saddam was Sunni Muslim, and he oppressed the Shiite Muslim majority. Now the Shiites are in control (sort of, as much as anyone can be in control of such a mess) and are happy to see Saddam executed.

Yeah, but if you want me to be German I could also be German.
And however I would only go there to protest against the US imperialism, nothing against my motherland.
