The lion of Mesopotamia
Well, say what you like about Saddam Hussein, he's got bottle. Yes, I know, he became a terrible monster once he stopped doing what the West wanted, but he certainly makes the people around him at his trial look like pygmies. His latest wheeze was to tell the judges to "go to hell" and he then announced that he would boycott the trial - something he did yesterday.

Seeing him wagging his finger and interrupting just about everyone may have done wonders for his image in Iraq and the Arab World. The Turkish tailor who made the suit that he is wearing has reported an increase in sales of about fifty per cent: it seems that quite a lot of folk want to dress like Saddam.

To make matters even more risible, his fellows seem to be joining in the fun. Barazan Ibrahim, Saddam's half-brother, managed to score a point against the prosecuter by reminding everyone that he was a former Baath Party member.

If the bloody Americans can't even organise a decent show trial, is it any wonder that they cannot subjugate Iraq?
