Interesting article on the rumors and suggestions circulating about Saddam’s presumably upcoming trial. (Unintentionally and unpleasantly amusing quote of the day: “Saddam cannot have a fair trial at home. There are just too many who suffered under him.”)
When Saddam does go on trial, maybe they can pick up a few tips on how not to try a genocidal maniac from the ongoing Milosevic trial:
Prosecutors concluded their case against Milosevic last month, two years after his trial began in February 2002. Milosevic is to begin presenting his defense on June 8…. Milosevic has the right to challenge any replacement [judge]. That could delay the proceedings, which have already been going on for more than two years. He could even seek a retrial.
Beware the terrible swift sword of justice!by
