Saddam's trial will start before the end of this year - according to the Iraqi Defense minister (as reported by Qatar's alJazeera).
I hope they convict - AND EXECUTE - the evil tyrant before the elections - which means before January 30th. WHY SO FAST!? It would be nice if this little bit of business was completed BEFORE the new Iraqi administration - THE FIRST DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT IN IRAQ'S HISTORY (and in greater Arabia's history, too) - so that the new adminsitration could begin with a clean slate.
Which means Iraq needs to put on a simple, speedy trial. NOT LIKE THE ONE THE U.N. IS PUTTING ON AGAINST MILOSEVIC - WHICH HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS!
