President Bush or Former President Saddam, what's the difference?

they both got a lot of people dead, so, don't even bring that up, both had fixed elections, so don't even bring that up either, both have "dirty" family members, so really, what's the big difference?

oh yeah, don't bring up the fact that one is a cowboy and the other is a arab

    The difference is one is powerful and makes dumb decisions!

    and one is weak and made bad decisions.

    not enough room in the world for 2 to make bad decisions so off with the weak.

    Sadaam killed A MILLION PEOPLE....A MILLION.... Good God man Where has your reasoning power gone? YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN KILLED FOR POSTING THIS QUESTION UNDER SADAAM. IS THAT DIFFERENCE ENOUGH FOR YOU?

    Source(s): Thank you for the interesting question. I believe the only way to answer is to look at deaths that took place *before* the Gulf War (1990-91). I don’t believe there’s any way to *legitimately* distinguish between uprisings “caused” by the Gulf War, unless we can get into individual minds to see how much the Gulf War affected their actions. With that in mind, here’s a list of crimes that we’re aware of: In 1959, before Hussein was the leader of Iraq (before he had completed high school, even), he participated in the assignation of the then-current Iraqi leader. (“Crimes Against Iraq,” http://www.upforanything.net/archives/000664.html ) In 1968, Hussein, actively engaged in “purifying the government and society of potential dissidents.” (“Biography of Saddam Hussein of Tikrit,” Iraq Foundation: http://www.iraqfoundation.org/research/bio.html ) In 1974, Hussein participated in the killing of five religious leaders. (“Saddam’s Crimes,” http://www.sciri.btinternet.co.uk/English/Saddam_C... ) Hundreds of other religious people were arrested and tortured. In 1977, Hussein was responsible for the arrest of thousand of religious people, and the killing of hundreds of them. In 1978, Hussein participated in the assignation of former Prime-Minister Abdul Razzaq Al naef in London. Between 1978-79, Hussein helped “eliminate” 7,000 communists in Iraq. In 1979, Hussein ordered another purge to eliminate political opponents. Hundreds of top ranking Ba'thists and army officers were executed. During the Iran-Iraq War (1980-88), 730,000 Iranians died. You will recall that Hussein was the aggressor in this war, because he wanted full control of the Arvand/Shatt al-Arab waterway at the head of the Persian Gulf. (For more information on the war, see “Iran-Iraq War,” at Encyclopedia.com: http://www.encyclopedia.com/html/i/irani1raq.asp ) Approximately 1,000 Kuwaiti nationals were killed in the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. It’s estimated there were 1,500,000 refugees from this war, displaced by Iraq’s occupation of Kuwait. 750,000 “endured brutalities, oppression, and torture.” Although the date for the end of the war is usually given as 1988, the struggle continued, and 500,000 Iranians were late killed (the Iranians say it was closer to 1 million), 100,000 by Hussein’s chemical weapons. In one day, 5,000 men, women, and children were gassed.
