Saddam pretends that he hasn’t already been sentenced to death (not by HIS choice), and that he didn’t already appeal the decision (and lost). From MEMRI:
In a message to the Iraqi people sent through his lawyers, following the confirmation of his death sentence, Saddam Hussein offered to sacrifice his head for the wellbeing of the Iraqi people, and warned against “the invaders and Persians.” One of his lawers, Jordanian Salah al-Armouti, told Al-Jazeera TV that Saddam would not appeal for mercy because such an act would be “contrary to his character.”

This would be laughable, if this guy hadn’t slaughtered hundreds of thousands of people. I can’t wait for him to finally be off this Earth, forever banished to his fiery prison down below.
