Can you tell me anyone who seriously thought this guy was innocent of the atrocities he committed?
I think your argument is self defeating by saying "the trial was all for show" and "I mean it was almost a joke from the beginning" then to turn around and say you find it unfair to judge them on it makes no sense hell I would be very concerned if I lived in a country that carried out show trials for shits and giggles that resulted in a hanging.
As many have said Hussein should never have been captured in the first place, my preference would have been to toss a couple of grenades into his hole, fill it in with a bulldozer and forget he was ever seen. A few months later "find" DNA pronounce him dead and buried and move on.
