Saddam's trial. When you think about it, this trial is symptomatic of all that went wrong for the US occupation. Nothing could go right for that brutal and lousy occupation. Even the trial of Saddam. I mean, how difficult it is to prove that Saddam committed war crimes and crimes against humanity? Yet, the American occupation managed to botch that simple trial. The trial was intended to showcase "the rule of law" for the Arab people. Instead, the Arab people were exposed to an all too familiar trial: it looked like the farcical trials in Arab countries.
