All military leave has been cancelled in Iraq as part of increased security ahead of Sunday's expected verdict against Saddam Hussein.
Other measures will include a curfew on Baghdad, Diyala and Salahuddin provinces, a senior official said.
Saddam supporters have threatened more violence if he is sentenced to death.
The verdict comes amid increased violence - 83 bodies, some showing signs of torture, were found in Baghdad alone in the past 36 hours.
Why Sunday? That provides 2 full days of complete Saddam coverage from all media. America will be bombarded for the 48 hours before they vote, with a never ending Saddam-a-thon. There will be barely any coverage of the current war, the dead, the economy, the poll numbers, or the individual races. Nope, it will be all Saddam, all the time.

They say the msn will be "All Sadam, All The Time'' when the verdict is read. And how that will affect the election results after two days of saturation.

Well if riots breakout like some think will, it would have the opposite effect if we have two full days to see Iraq fall apart. My guess is it will be postponed.

If riots break out then there's just a few more examples of the "terrorists" who "win if Dems are elected",
and if it stays peacefull then it's just a shining example of republican's "success in Iraq".
