Judge throws Saddam out of courtroom

It's sad, but this has become a bigger soap opera than the OJ trial. Too bad they're not televising this one...

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The chief judge ejected Saddam Hussein and a co-defendant punched one of the guards and denounced prosecutors as "pimps" and "traitors" during the toppled leader's genocide trial against the Kurds on Tuesday.

One of Saddam's former military commanders, Hussein Rasheed, was the one who apparently punched a guard.

This trial has been one dramatic episode after another, and not in a good way. As long as Saddam is convicted and sentenced (preferably to death) in the end, I won't feel so guilty about enjoy the courtroom pandemonium...
