Slobodan Milosevic was representing himself at his international tribunal. He had a fool for a client but there may have been just a hint of method to his madness. He did expire before the trial did. He wasn’t convicted and he wasn’t executed.

Saddam Hussein, on the other hand, had plenty of representation, was convicted, and sentenced to death by hanging. The sentence was appealed and the appeal was denied. His day of reckoning has arrived.

Two genocidal dictators. One didn’t outlast his trial. The other didn’t outlast the second trial. Neither one is walking this earth anymore.

May God have mercy on their souls.
