Saddam's Trial Goes Wrong...
Whatever anyone says about the importance of Saddam's trial, it was always going to be a show trial, unfortunately not one that will give the Iraqi people what they need to move on: justice. That's quite tragic in itself.
But watching the first images of the opening of the trial, I couldn't help but smile and perhaps making a little light of this "case" with its foregone conclusion is the best we can do. I mean, he doesn't even want to acknowledge his own identity, nor the court's legitimacy.
So, it wouldn't be such a stretch of the imagination if the ex-dictator decided to play rock, paper, scissors in front of the international cameras.
Watch Saddam play rock, paper, scissors with the presiding judge.
You didn't seriously expect this guy to take it lying down, did you?
