Things you might want to know about Hussein...

He would throw people into industrial shredders and would force their families to watch. Apparently it was better to go in head first. I saw a film where he had a bunch of prisoners lined up outside a quarry to test suicide bomb vests. He personally detonated them one by one. It must have been a bummer to be at the back of the line watching the people ahead of you. He also gassed Kurds (including women and children), in their villages with nerve gas (a weapon of mass destruction).
