Ready And Willing
Something very intelligent came out during Saddam Hussein's trial today.
His half brother stood up and shouted "Why don't you just execute us and get rid of all of this!"
Hell yeah. I agree. Let's end this foolishness before Saddam talks his way out of the trial and makes us all look like fools.
Hussein is insane, but he is also damn smart and we had better watch out. Saddam is crafting a very sneaky defense. He is slowly absorbing the judge's power. By making a scene and halting the legal proceedings he is making a mockery of the nascent Iraqi judicial system.
So before this happens I say let the bailiff open fire the next time Saddam or someone else claims that they would welcome execution. If nothing else it would shut up the remaining defendants.
