Lesson Snapshot:

  • Saddam Hussein, president of Iraq between 1978 to 2003, had the dubious distinction of being the world’s best known and most hated Arab leader.
  • This was remarkable considering he lived in a region where despotic rule was the norm, he was more feared by his own people than any other head of state.
  • A former Iraqi diplomat living in exile summed up Saddam’s rule in one sentence:
  • “Saddam is a dictator who was ready to sacrifice his country, just so long as he could remain on his throne in Baghdad.”
  • Few Iraqis disagreed with this.
  • Although none living in Iraq would have dare to say so publicly.
