Saddam trial descends into chaos


This is maybe the fifteenth headline I've seen regarding Saddam Hussein's trial descending into chaos. If it descends anymore into chaos it's going to rip a hole in the space-time continuum.

Saddam Hussein, forced last night to attend the latest session of his trial, was looking haggard and wearing a robe rather than his usual crisp suit as he shouted, "Down with Bush".

Unfortunately, with the Middle East's infamous mistreatment of women, we're unsure with "Bush" he was talking about.

His top co-defendant and half-brother Barzan Ibrahim Hassan al-Tikriti, wearing a white undershirt, struggled with guards bringing him into the court.

Anybody think this trial is going to have any other outcome other than death for the accused? I didn't think so.

The former Iraqi leader and his seven co-defendants had vowed not to attend the trial until the return of their lawyers. The defence team is boycotting the proceedings until chief judge Rauf Rasheed Abdel-Rahman is removed, alleging he is biased against their clients.

So the lawyers aren't coming to court. Interesting defense strategy let's see how that works out for them.

Before taking his seat, Saddam shouted, waving his pointed finger: "Down with the agents. Down with Bush. Long live the nation."

Yes, long live Iraq. Their future looks a bit brighter with you gone. I guess when the car bombs stop. But hey, you know, que sera sera. Personally all this Muslim outrage and aggression and chaos is making me a bit tired. You are a bunch of unhappy people that just refuse to get along with others and then act surprised and outraged when those 'others' go against you whether it be by military force or by printing offensive cartoons in their newspapers. You reap what you sow.

Are you sure he didn't shout 'Down ON Bush'? Maybe he wants to make amends by blowing POTUS! Just a thought!

It's getting silly now, this is from todays (14th feb) news.

Saddam in 'hunger strike' protest

Deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein has told a Baghdad court that he and his seven co-accused are on hunger strike in protest at their treatment.
"We have been on a hunger strike for three days," Saddam Hussein declared as he appeared in the courtroom wearing a dark suit and holding the Koran.

After shouting by the defendants, the session got under way with testimony from a former intelligence official.

The defendants deny charges over the 1982 massacre of 148 people in Dujail.

At the start of the session, Saddam Hussein shouted in praise of the Iraqi people, saying "Long live the great Arab nation" and "long live the mujahideen," before taking his seat.

The former dictator was wearing the dark suit he usually reserves for court appearances, rather than the traditional Arab dress he adopted on Monday.

He once more denounced the court as a puppet of the US and said he and his co-defendants had begun the hunger strike to protest against their treatment.

Saddam Hussein's half-brother and co-defendant Barzan Ibrahim al-Tikriti, who also launched into a protracted diatribe, attended court dressed for a second day in his long underwear to signal his rejection of the court.


It goes on but i'll let you have fun with it.
