Saddam's Aids Are On Diet

The BBC News reported:

The US military says a number of former senior Iraqi officials who are now in custody have been refusing food.

A military spokesman said seven of a group of 11 prisoners that includes Ali Hassan al-Majid, also known as Chemical Ali, have been refusing some meals.

He said there was no concern for their health because they were still taking water and some US army rations.

The spokesman denied reports that the former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was on hunger strike.

Does anyone really care whether those criminals decide to eat or not? Are they trying to get sympathy from people?

It's funny that they stop eating after taking their breakfast. It's called a diet - not a hunger strike. They probably need to diet since they're getting such good treatment in jail. Something they denied thousands of jailed Iraqis while they ruled Iraq.

I suggest the army give them a copy of "Mayada, Daughter of Iraq: One Woman's Survival Under Saddam Hussein."There are stories of Ali Chemical's brutality in this book. So, it makes for a good read from their comfortable prison.

UPDATE 12/13/2004
Well, they're back to eating. Too much for that hunger strike.
