    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Saddam Hussein ended a brief hunger strike after missing just one meal in his U.S.-run prison, a U.S. military spokesman said Friday.

    The former Iraqi leader had refused lunch Thursday in protest at the killing of one of his lawyers by gunmen, but the spokesman said he ate his evening meal.

    Former Saddam aides being held in the same prison had refused to eat three meals since Wednesday evening but ended their fast with the ex-president.

    "They all took their dinner meal," the spokesman told Reuters.

    Saddam is on trial for crimes against humanity for his role in the 1982 killing of 148 Shi'ites in Dujail. His lead counsel, Khalil al-Dulaimi, has blamed pro-government Shi'ite militias for the murder of his deputy Khamis al-Obaidi Wednesday.

    Life would be simpler for the Iraqi courts if he starved himself to death.[2c]

    I think they ought to force feed him all the way to the gallows.

    Not such a bad idea at that, he deserves it. But what an easy way, if he simply refuses to eat. I guess I don't care how he is croaked, so long as it happens.[booze]
