While there is still no doubt that Saddam deserves everything that is coming to him, he did make a couple of points in the courtroom yesterday that needed to be made:

Mr. Hussein called on Iraqis to stop fighting each other and said that "criminals" were responsible for the bombing in Samarra that touched off waves of sectarian killings.

The trial's chief judge, Raouf Abdel-Rahman, repeatedly interrupted Mr. Hussein, telling him to stick to the charges against him.

"This is a criminal court, we are not in politics," the judge said. "If it wasn't for politics neither you nor I would be here today," Mr. Hussein retorted.
