Saddam Hussein has announced that he is on a hunger strike as his way of protesting the chief judge handling the case against him. He claims to have not eaten for three days, a claim was has not been verified as of yet.
In Saddams own words to the judge "For three days we have been holding a hunger strike protesting against your way of treating us — against you and your masters.".
This is the least of it, however, his former Intelligence chief has appeared in court the last two days only wearing his long underwear. Genius apparantly decided that he wasn't going to appear in court anymore and the judge and guards had other ideas. According to the AP he (Ibrahim) had to be pulled into the court — shouting and struggling and wearing only his long underwear — by guards who held him by the arms.
Some of my favorite quotes from the Butcher and his cronies
"You brought me by force in my pyjamas and I have been on a hunger strike for two days." - Ibrahim Barzan former Intelligence chief
"I say to all Iraqis fight and liberate your country." - Saddam Hussein - didn't he butcher the last group that attempted this?
"Hit your own head with that gavel." - Saddam Hussein addressing chief judge Abdel-Rahman
What a couple of nutjobs, may justice be served to them now and for eternity.
