It seems that tonight's the night...

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Saddam Hussein will be hanged before dawn on Saturday in Iraq, before 6 a.m. (10 p.m. Friday ET), according to Appeals Judge Munir Haddad.

The paperwork is in order for Hussein's execution, and the judge echoed a widespread belief that the hanging could be imminent.

At the same time, attorneys in the United States were taking court action to block the execution.

Haddad, a judge on the appeals court that upheld the former dictator's death sentence, and an adviser to Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki each confirmed the paperwork preparation late Friday.

"All the procedures have been completed," Haddad said.

are we allowed to post the video (which will almost certainly be on you tube) in this thread?

I'm wondering what the effect of the execution will be on the violence in Iraq...

It can only go up. This is going to be viewed as Kurds and Shiites targeting all Sunnis because of the way the trial went about, the way the execution went about (e.g. Saddam and the executioner, a Sadrist, had an all out debate), and the date of the trial will be viewed as a slap in the face.

That's the way I see Sunnis thinking about this. I don't know why though, I felt more sorry for all the sheep that were being slaughtered for Eid. I really do wish that he was kept alive and milked of information. I guess that's why this case was picked first and was wrapped up so quickly. Imagine how much dirty laundry would have been aired out about Arab and foreign powers that were the reason Saddam became so powerful in the first place. Oh how would I have loved to see the last Saudi king humiliated for being the bigot he really was.

That would have been an interesting outcome. I think that the purpose of offing him as quickly as they did was to "move Iraq past Saddam."

That isn't gonna happen. They've been past Saddam for a while. They're now fighting for sectarian power.

Saddam is dead, I was confused, I thought that the execution would be a lot more formal than a whole bunch of people in black head covers cursing and yelling and then the hanging. I though it would be a whole lot more formal.
