Well, there was something in the news that intrigued me, only for its utter ordinariness. Another day, another Arab tyrant handed over to civilian authorities to answer for his crimes.
You know, it happens so often we’re just blasé about nowadays, eh? I mean, tell me something new.
I saw some clips of the arraignment on CNN this morning; they had some Brit human-rights attorney worrying on about the fact that Saddam did not have legal representation, however the Iraqis had set up the court at this point, and yet was made to sign a statement saying he understood the charges being made. The CNN broadcasters were very grave. I felt a tear welling up for the Butcher of Baghdad. Obviously the poor fellow is going to be railroaded by our puppet proxies.
The best bit is at the end (though you really should read all of it):
Take your choice. Wallow, if you will, in this day of shame. Saddam is going to stand trial – and Bush isn’t. Truly a world turned upside down.
