The next step will be for all of them to be formally charged. At that hearing, they will all have legal representation and will be told when the trial will take place, they will at that time have the formal charges and the evidence. Saddam's trial will not take place until January, 2005 when Iraq has elected representatives.
The US has nothing to say about this trial, it's being run by the Iraqis for the Iraqis. If Iran wants him tried, they should contact the Iraqi prosecutor and present their evidence. The Iraqis would probably welcome their help.
"Don't say this is only up to the Iraqis, 'cause all Bush would have to do is nod his head and the Iranians' charges would be heard also."
Iraq's sovereignty would be enhanced if the Iranians took their case directly to the Iraqis, rather than to attempt to convince an intermediary to make their case for participation.
"We can not close our eyes on crimes committed by the mad dog of the middle east, Saddam. Can we?"
Absolutely not! It would be better for all concerned if the Iranians appealed to the Iraqis to present their charges.
