Saddam Psychological Healing
When Saddam Hussien was finally held to account for his war crimes by the international tribunal, his death came as an immensely relieving process for many of the victims who were affected by his crimes. Saddam was trialled and executed by hanging for the crimes he committed under his dictatorship, with his execution being approved of by the United States Bush administration.
