The second case of the worst war crimes possible, genocide, is beginning against Saddam Hussein and his staff, accused of using mustard gas and coventional weapons in 1988 to kill 180,000 Iraqis.

It isn't a hot-button election brochure word - it's a country where death and destruction occurs on the hour.
