what happened to saddam hussein
That's my question too. I searched for it last week and I just found his letter from the prison.
Good question, oldunion. Here is a link to the latest BBC online news article I could find: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/4180372.stm - it's about a week old, though (24 August) and doesn't say much, just that
Think he will replace Rumsfeld at defense. They have similar visions, but Rummy is now considered a softie :-)
They need him to work out a strategy against Iran.
He is held in a US military camp, though he was officially handed over to the Iraqis and is currently standing trial in an Iraqi court[/edit]. He was already convicted of several crimes.
I hope his court wouldn't last forever!
You know what they say about the wheels of justice...
I can guess what you mean, but could you please tell me what they say?
well you can either end it with "... grind slow" or "... have odd smelling grease"
Maybe he knows some important information and has cut a deal with the US....
And who is going to pick up his tab.
yes...one would wonder why there has been nearly zero news coverage on the subject.
Isn't he in the midst of writing his novel?
Because no interesting changes have occured recently. It really wouldn't be news to put "Saddam is still awaiting trial" in the paper every day.
I ate him. True story
In all seriousness, what I believe is occuring right now is that the prosecution is preparing their case. Since we're talking about criminal charges against a head of state, it's going to take a very long time to prepare the case.
Remember the various CEO's that were arrested for various wrongdoings? The media was insane when they were arrested but things went completely quiet for months and sometimes years because it was taking a loooooooooooooooooong time to prepare the entire case.
God! You're here! weren't you say the person who claim most of meaningless discusions happen in this forum? Welcome anyway!
they do. franzbear has meaningless discissions too, I post there
