Yeah, he really got a raw deal.
For whatever his faults might have been, and this goes for Libya as well, under their leadership the people were prosperous and taken care of. Free
health care, world class hospitals, and a high level of education, not sure if it was free or not.
In Libya free education, free health care, free electricity, free land for farmers who pledged to farm it, a down payment for a house when people got
married, a share in the oil revenue.
yes maybe but still Saddam and Ghadzafie were dictators and murderers they had no religion, no logic and no mercy. however I do not want to justify
the attacks on Iraq and or Libya. the internal issues should be solved internally, moreover Saddam and Ghadzafi were someday friends of superpowers
and were supported by them.
they were not popular. Khomeini was a leader not a dictator. and leadership is an indirectly elected position and supervised by the so called eight
year directly elected "assembly of experts" in Iran.
She hates the Iranians btw. I don't think what WE are told by our leaders/media about them is true.
I would be more inclined to believe her as she lived in the area. From an Iraqi perspective, there is a lot of hatred there.
I do not think so my friend, she is just a blogger and her thoughts are respected but the arabs public opinion is here:

this is exactly the meaning of Media ! I myself try to get news from various media not some limited one.
but I heard that even for all his faults that Saddam Hussein said in his farewell address to Iraq that they shouldn't hate the American
people. Just their leaders.
I doubt Saddam knew anything from humanity but yes of course there is no reason that nations hate each others.
I'm sure that the language barrier helps keep us from the truth too. Most of us have no idea what's being said by them, so we could be told
the worst possible transliteration of meaning. Or just out and out mis-translations too for that matter.
be sure, the translations were good in those videos.
Yeah, I know there's historically been a lot of bad blood between Arabs and Persians anyways, plus Saddam was a Sunni that kept the Shi'a in
Iraq suppressed, which offended the Iranians..
yes maybe there were conflicts historically but wars are because of power and greed not religion ! Saddam had no religion ! it is like we call Hitler
a catholic. Saddam was the aggressor in Iran-Iraq war and it was supported by powers. Saddam attacked both Iranians and Iraqis(even sunnies) with
chemical weapons !
Arab monarchies supported Saddam just not because of nationality or sects because they knew that this revolution
will affect their monarchies what nowadays is known as "arab spring".
when real religions enter the equation then we can expect what Khomeini did, congratulating the christmas !
indeed religions are to unite humanity, this is my personal view. what khomeini did was not just a showing off, that was his belief from his religious
point of view that no one should annoy his neighbours and of course real muslims believe that Jesus is alive and will return.
