Saddam Agonistes


“Saddam’s half brother shouted ‘Why don’t you just execute us!’”

Well, why don’t we? This preposterous “trial” is the worst possible advertisement for the rule of law. Saddam should have been taken behind a tree and shot as soon as his identity had been ascertained.
The performance he’s putting on here, even I am starting to like him.
A few more weeks of this and they’ll be putting up statues to Saddam all over the Arab world. What a stupid farce.
