Junk food corrupts absolutely

Is this due to the seductive power of Doritos?

TOPPLED Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein has ended his hunger strike on health grounds.

The former dictator began his hunger strike earlier this month to protest against the conduct of his trial.

His chief lawyer Khalil Dulaimi, who met Saddam for seven hours in Baghdad yesterday, said: "The president maintained his hunger strike for 11 days but was forced to end it for health reasons."

He's certainly good at table-thumping, but not so convincing when it comes to matters of principle.
