Saddam trial a problem for US: Pepe Escobar details how a trial of Saddam could cause immense embarrassment for the US; and how the resistance will not be stopped by his arrest; and how terrorism has gained a boost from the US invasion.

"Experts in Brussels have even a "top ten" list of countries most likely to be victims of a next wave of terror attacks: they are, from top to bottom, the US, Britain, Israel, Australia, France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Germany and Poland. The experts are all assuming the working hypothesis that al-Qaeda cells which are not directly related to bin Laden anymore are using an "al-Qaeda trademark" to mobilize jihadis and increase the repercussion of their particular attacks."
