    Defiant Saddam appears in court
    Saddam: Both defiant and downcast
    Iraq's ex-leader Saddam Hussein has made a defiant first appearance before an Iraqi judge, branding President George W Bush as the "real criminal".

    He defended Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990, said he was still president and rejected the court's jurisdiction.

    He arrived in handcuffs and chains at the court near Baghdad airport to hear charges of war crimes and genocide.

    TV pictures of the hearing were released to international broadcasters shortly after the hearing finished.


    The images - cleared for broadcast by the US military - were the first of Saddam Hussein since his capture in December. They showed Iraq's former president looking thin, haggard and with a trimmed, grey beard. [img]http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/40335000/jpg/_40335367_saddam3_i203_ap.jpg'>

    [quote][b]Seven preliminary charges were read out to him, including accusations over the campaign against the Kurds in the 1980s, which included the use of chemical weapons in Halabja, and the suppression of Kurdish and Shia uprisings after the 1991 Gulf War.

    Hearing the charge relating to Halabja, where about 5,000 Kurdish civilians died in a single day, Saddam Hussein said, "Yes, I heard about that."

    He became most agitated when he was accused of invading Kuwait in 1990.

    "How can you, as an Iraqi, say the 'invasion of Kuwait' when Kuwait is part of Iraq?" he asked the judge, whose face was not shown on the film and whose identity is being kept secret for security reasons.

    He said he invaded Kuwait "for the Iraqi people" and referred to Kuwaitis as "dogs", for which he was rebuked by the judge.

    Saddam Hussein refused at the end to sign legal papers confirming that he had been read his rights and understood the case against him, saying he wanted his lawyer in court.

    He was then taken back to jail, while the charges were read out one-by-one against the 11 other accused.

    These include former Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz and Ali Hasan al-Majid, known as "Chemical Ali" for his alleged role in poison gas attacks, who were formally transferred from US to Iraqi custody on Wednesday.

    fire. That way he isn't fit for Allah.

    .....? No comedy? Apparently I shouldn't joke about killing a mass murderer
