Saddam War lover, resembled Hitler, If people start calling every dictator a Hitler, then the name looses its meaning It cheapens the name The magnitude of Hitler’s extermination methods was vastly larger than Saddam’s attacks against his own people Gas was used by the French in WWI and Nasser used gas in Egypt US was committed of atrocities in Vietnam Saddam was ultimately concerned about himself He started talking about traitors, killed them to promote fear in his people Saddam accepted that he was going to be executed, from FBI guy Nabucanasser, ancient Babylonian warrior, current day Iraq Civilization that invented the wheel Saddam admired him He wanted to become the new Arab leader, like Nasser was He felt he had the military might to do so He took on Palestinian issues Shiites did not like him, nor did the Kurds The coalition was very unstable.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
