With Saddam's lawyers claiming Hussein had a stroke and was nearing death, today an Iraqi official told Al-Jazeera that the former dictator suffers from chronic prostate infection, but refuses biopsy to see if it is cancerous. Other than that Saddam appears to be healthy.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- Deposed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein suffers from a chronic prostate infection and has refused to have a biopsy to prove he does not have cancer, an Iraqi official said in an interview Thursday on Al-Jazeera television.

X-rays and blood tests carried out by U.S. military doctors did not show anything more serious than the infection and Saddam seemed
to be in good health otherwise, Iraqi Human Rights Minister Bakhtiar Amin said.

I am quite sure I read about the prostata infection in german newspapers about one week ago.
But the stroke was real news, I hope he will survice so he will be able to attend the trial.

I hope he goes to trial as well. It would be too convient if he died before the trial.

Funny when I heard about this I was thinking back to how some have speculated he would probably die before he ever went to trial. Seems they may have been right.

This is just a blur of crap, now isn't it?

Two days ago headlines read "Saddam gardening and writing poetry"
Headlines yesterday read "OH MY GAWD HE'S DYING!"
Headline today read "His nuts are swollen!"
