Saddam ends hunger strike after missing one meal

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.

So does this mean that every time I miss lunch I'm on a hunger strike?

Overheard from a co-worker: "Fasting to cleanse is a 3 day process, so unless he was hungry for more than three days, he wasn't on strike."

Good to know that he's dedicated to making a political statement by skipping lunch.
