Saddam was yet another power obsessed psychopath and he did horrific things to people because he like so many world leaders had no conscience. Definitely not fit to rule. Best place for people like him is in the ground.

If you read his biography you will find out he was an orphan troubled kid. His crazy uncle who raised him put many messed up racist ideas in his head. The guy was a bully and low achiever in his high school years. He was involved in some petty crimes before he joined the army. He was an adventurer and participated in some failed coup d'tats and was on run for quit a while. Later, he got the power through another coup and stayed in power until American soldiers pull him out of his rat=hole in Tikrit. He was a low tempered, and maniac dictator but he was good at least for one thing. He kept fanatic Muslims and crazy Jihadists at bay for over 3 decades and manage to kept Iraq united with Iron fist.

Not much... He just invaded Kuwait and Iran while causing a million deaths and killed few thousands Kurds (all civilians) with chemical weapons.

I have a friend from high school whose family was from Iraq, but he and his siblings were born in the US. I was telling him how it seemed that there was more order and prosperity when Saddam was in power as opposed to now. Right now it's very chaotic and there is no order, no structure, and widespead devastation. (This was also told to me by one of my university professors.)

He then told me a story of what happened to a guy that was dating one of Saddam's daughters. He said that she really liked him and they would date. But when Saddam found out that the guy wasn't of the same ethnic group or same region (I forget this detail), he invited them over for a grand dinner with lavish food and drinks. Then he had his henchmen show the guy different areas of the palace. After a few hours Saddam's daughter asked where the guy went. She was then directed to a "room." In that room she witnessed them cut his penis off with a long military knife (like the one in Rambo). Then they asked her if she still wanted to date him.

Has anyone else heard of this story or something similar? From the internet the worst things I've read about Saddam doing was beating the Iraqi Olympic Team with baseball bats when they didn't win at their respective sport. Now I'm confused...any information would be great. Thanks.
