One Can Only Hope ...

Apparently, sitting in the prisoner's dock hasn't done much for Saddam Hussein's humility:

"I am Saddam Hussein!" the former ruler said repeatedly, shaking his fist in the air and trying to assert his old authority. But as the session came to a close, Hussein seemed for a moment to acknowledge another reality.

"Like the path of Mussolini, to resist occupation to the end, that is Saddam Hussein," he said.

A part of me - still the strongest part - says that even Saddam deserves a full, fair and open trial. Despite what he himself thinks, I happen to believe that he's getting one now.

However, there is a part of me that says, "If he really wants to compare himself to Mussolini, perhaps something along those lines could be arranged."

More later.
