Power Hungry: Saddam Hussein is protesting his treatment by staging a hunger strike.

Um, okay!

For a man who starved hundreds of thousands of his own people by ignoring United Nations resolutions after the invasion of Kuwait, and thereby bringing crippling economic sanctions on his own people, I'm glad to see him starve.

And it's good he's doing it to himself. If we imposed that punishment on him, that would be a war crime. But the food's there, he just ain't eatin', or so he says.

Seriously, though, I don't understand how a hunger strike can be effective as a protest. Any sort of self-inflicted punishment just makes you look crazy, not dedicated. (If you don't give me what I'll want, I'll punch myself in the face! I mean it!)

I almost want to keep doing whatever is bothering the protester, just to see if he will follow through.
