Mohammed of Iraq the Model says: “We were watching an example of justice in the new Iraq, a place where no one should be denied his rights, not even Saddam.” RTWT.
I hope the trial goes well, in an orderly fashion, that witnesses have the courage to testify, that a good record is made, and that Saddam is put to death following a judgment on the merits.

Chicago news! De Paul is having Ward Churchill speak. Many will be assembling to protest him. DePaul can be reached by el at the redline Fullerton stop. Start meeting around 4:30.
The commenter “Aristides” on one of the Belmont Club threads put it well:
Iraqis should bring Saddam to justice. This does not, however, necessitate a trial.
I presume Saddam can reverse the old defence line and say: “I am innocent. I just gave the orders.”
Poor Richard, Do you really want to feed that insatiable ego by demonstrating?
(Yes, I know I am enabling thread hi-jacking.)
This is another good take on the trial.
