Saddam On Trial Part V: Hungry Man

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!”

You are so right on. I would like to recommend that every time he acts out he be given time out and taken back to his cell. I believe that is a standard practice in most court rooms.

That treatement seems to work with most three year olds, why wouldn't it work with this bully?

His choice to go on a hunger strike won't last too long. He doesn't have the fortitude or courage to starve himself to death. He is just a grandstanding bully. He doesn't have the stuff true martyrs are made of.

Maybe the guards are using cruel and unusual punishment by eating the Doritos in front of him and not sharing. When bullies are caged you can really f**k with their minds.

These ideas may not be serving well, living fully, or doing good works, but, they are cathartic to write.

See you on the flip side.

Saddam reminds me of Master P in Dancing with the Stars. The audience kept starving for more Master P but one night he had to go, the audience voted him out. I am a big fan of democracy and Pat Roberson one liners as well. I think the media festival should be looking for a wrap now on this chapter.

That picture still freaks me out, y'know.

Did it ever occur to you guys that Saddam might not be eating to look his best for the camera's? ;)

I wonder if a new fad diet is going to crop up - the Saddam Protest Diet!!

Pete Bogs said...

Saddam's not looking too good for the cameras with his rantings and ravings... hmm, do you suppose it's televised over there, like the OJ Simpson trial was in the US?

the Saddam Protest Diet is NO Froot-Loops... he hates those...

Don't they have a naughty corner in the court?

Where's super nanny when you need her?

Pete Bogs said...

I think the entire defendants' box is the naughty corner... bad people!

ffff said...

Guess ol' Saddam has all the time in the world...well the longer he delays proceedings I guess he feels in control. He needs counselling..or something! A nannee might be the answer.
