Saddam and co-defendants 'on hunger strike'

I've tried to tell you this before. Hunger strikes only work when people don't want you to die. Otherwise, you're just playing genie and granting wishes.

Saddam Hussein today told the court trying him for the deaths of nearly 150 Shia Muslim men and boys that he had gone on a hunger strike to protest at the recently-appointed chief judge.

That'll show them all. Here's what you do Saddam. Don't eat anything for a few months and BAM!, you won't have to worry about the recently-appointed chief judge any longer. I think Saddam just handed down the death penalty to himself. Poor guy, still thinks he's in charge.

The ousted dictator began the session in much the same way as his previous appearances, shouting his support for Iraqi insurgents and insulting the chief judge.

A tactic that did not work well for me when I was trying to fight that speeding ticket, by the way.

His half-brother and co-defendant, Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti, wore long underwear for the second consecutive day to demonstrate his rejection of the court and said he was on a hunger strike too.

Protested in his underwear? Didn't Michael Jackson do something similiar? Do people have to pay to attend this trial cause shit, this would be better than any Broadway play out there. This IS reality television ladies and gentlemen. Scary huh?
