Saddam Hussein is back in the courtroom, and back to his grandstanding ways.
In his latest appearance, Saddam has said he’s on a hunger strike. Could it be that his purported love of Doritos is at an end? Does he find the bland new packaging disagreeable?
Saddam’s hunger strike is reportedly in protest of the treatment he’s received from the presiding judge. That is, the one who has insisted Saddam be civil and stop interrupting the proceedings with endless rants.
The sadistic bastard!
During his last appearance Saddam and his defense team had stormed out of court over this "treatment." They were compelled to come back to court for the continuation of the trial earlier this week.
While some of his codefendants had to literally be dragged into court, Saddam came back under his own power. He'd previously said he would not return; if it comes to that again, I have a suggestion about how he should be brought back in:
Strapped to a dolly, wrapped in a straightjacket and wearing a Friday The 13th hockey mask.
“Take this thing back to Baghdad!”
