Hi everyone:

Can anybody explain me what is the meaning of reckon in the following paragraph:

"Iraq’s turbulent effort to reckon with the violence of its past took a macabre turn today when the execution of Saddam hussein’s half-brother ended with the hangman’s noose severing his head from his body after he fell through the trapdoor"

Thanks in advance for your help, bye
