The Iranians gassed the Kurds, not Saddam. Not to say he isn't a murderous tyrant, but he didn't gas the Kurds in Halabja. They were dead by a blood agent, and all the Iraqis had was mustard gas.
I can't imagine Saddam making it to trial, he has far too much information that could embarass many of the superpowers.
He'll end up slipping in the shower and breaking his neck or something. Spontaneuos combustion. Accidentally swallowing a grenade, etc.

Do you think someone took out a little pent up frustration on 'ol Saddam??? (not that he didn't have it coming !) I know stuff like this happens sometimes in police arrests. The suspect just slipped and hit his head your honor. I swear.
I knew it had to be true.
In fact, as Saddam was being handcuffed, he began to struggle with his captors. He spat at the soldiers. One of the commandos decked him, either with a punch or a rifle butt. (The military later tidied up the story of his capture for popular consumption.)
