Saddam Is On Trial Today...

If convicted, Hussein could be executed after his first trial for his role in the 1982 Shiite massacre. But take note, who supplied the weapons:

[...] Using its allies in the Middle East, Washington funneled huge supplies of arms to Iraq. Classified State Department cables uncovered by Frantz and Waas described covert transfers of howitzers, helicopters, bombs and other weapons to Baghdad in 1982-83 from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Kuwait.
