Charles Taylor -- the ex-Liberian ruler is finally on trial for "crimes against humanity" for the Sierra Leone Special Court. I'm pleased to see that the presiding justice is Ugandan fireball Justice Julia Sebutinde. However, I'm hoping that Taylor doesn't pull the same stunts as Milosevic and use the court to grandstand. We need real justice for the people of Sierra Leone and Africa -- warlords like Taylor should not be allowed to make the court or the world look like a circus.
