It's not just the moustache of Stalin and Saddam that are similar, but the haircut and eyebrows too.
I believe it was Saddam trying to resemble Stalin. Wanting to create an image of a strong socialist leader. (Yes Baath party was socialist, no matter
how much Saddam shaked hands with republicans. Although probably partly because of those handshakes it turned more capitalistic in the 80's. But in
the beginning resemblance to Stalin was probably not the worst thing to have for career advances.)
