Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair tells his audience that if any British troops are found guilty of mistreating Iraqi prisoners they will be prosecuted during a press conference to mark the opening of Britain's Labour Party campaign in the upcoming European elections in London, Monday, May 10, 2004. (AP photo caption)<p>***First they'll be found guilty, then prosecuted at a news conference. Those Brits!***

At least it is a public process. Got to give it points for openness!

"No, no," said the Queen of Hearts. "Sentence first -- verdict afterwards."<p>"Stuff and nonsense," said blanp loudly. "The idea of having the sentence first!"<p>"Hold your tongue," said the Queen, turning purple.<p>"I won't!" said blanp.<p>"Off with his head!" the Queen shouted at the top of her voice. Nobody moved.<p>"Who cares for you?" said blanp, (he had grown to his full size by this time.) "You're nothing but a pack of cards!"
