Why the Fuss?

Why are the Iraqis bothering with Saddam Hussein? Saddam and his team should be told they have a choice. 1.) They can play by the rules and be allowed to participate in the trial and in his defense, or 2.) They can be told if they disrupt the court they will be removed and the court will continue on and treat him as in abstentia.

In abstentia trials are not unheard of, they should essentially consider Saddam Hussein in abstentia and try him that way.
