I know this is technically breaching the rules here, but can we have a thread about Saddam Hussein? I'm starting to look into his legacy and there is some pretty interesting stuff in how he helped shape the middle east.
Not really looking for opinions on whether his removal from power was good or bad.
I'm trying to romanticize him anons. Anybody got good reads that romanticize his endeavors? It'd have to be really well written because I know how his economic and military policies for most of his service years.
But I guess the dastardly liberal media made it all up, paying untold sums of money for eye witness testimony. The scars were all prosthetic, of course.
The shit Uday pulled alone had Iraqis celebrating in the streets after his death. Were they all hired pawns as well?
My father is kurdish. Once he said while he was a horrible person, and did atrocious things, it was needed, because without his iron-fist rule Iraq was deemed to fall apart, and a huge-ass war would had happened between the shia-sunni-kurdish forces, and life itself wasn't horrible for the common folk before the 90's.
Basically, while he oppressed people 'n shit, at least your head wasn't cut off for watching football like today.
Saddam was shit, not only because he was cruel but because he was an incompetent fucking retard. Just look at the Iraq-Iran war where Saddam had a tremendous upper hand in technology, training and foreign support and still failed miserably.
Obviously Americans overthrowing him and paving the way to terrorist faggotry wasn't a better alternative, but that doesn't make him good.
Saddam was a very great man and he was a True Leader of Arabs, for two reason: 1. Under his rule all Iraqi Arabs from all tribes and sect embraced eachother as Arab brothers 2. He stood up to the US and the Anglo-Zionist machine in defense of the Arab nation as a whole.
A very great man indeed, and it is a tragedy for all Arabs that he was murdered.
>implying you can rule a country of Arabs in the ME that's a constant target of subversion by Anglo-Zionists without an ironfist
Kek, are you serious?
I'm old enough to remember this.
It was like WW1, but with sandniggers.
The amount of revisionism still amazes me, no matter where it's found. No amount of whitewashing can hide the fact Saddam was a brutal leader, born of a brutal tribe in a brutal country. Whether or not removing him from power caused more problems than it solved is at least a reasonable discussion.
To be frank, it's not a bright spot in the history of the Western world.
We just hated Iran much more.
But this shit was the UK, France, Germany, South Korea, Singapore, and a bunch of other places.
Everyone hated Iran.
