Well, bugger my toe!

I always wondered why he kept up the pretence, now we know:

Saddam Hussein allowed the world to believe Iraq had weapons of mass destruction because he feared revealing his weakness to Iran, it has emerged.

Now, I always thought Saddam was a weapons-grade cunt because of the way he ruled, but I have to confess a sneaky frisson of sympathy for the old bastard, between the rock of American concern about WMD and the hard place of Iran as a neighbour.

That's a circle I'm glad I'll never have to square. And I can't help feeling that this all brings a trial of Tony Bliar a little closer, somehow.

I hope so, anyway.
