  5. Saddam was despot, but if wasn't for the United States and Britains illegal invasion of Iraq. The nation would not be in such a terriable state today.

  13. Can you do an episode on pastor Charles Taze Russell just like how you did an episode on l Ron Hubbard. He is Definitely just as weird and created a cult with way more members then Scientology

  14. For all that Saddam was, he was also the man to bring education and stability to the country. After his death, even his executioner said that while during Saddam's reign he had many family members and friends killed, he regretted killing Saddam because he saw that Iraq is in worse state than it had been under the dictator.

    His death also gave rise to sectarianism and exteminism. He was a brutal dictator no doubt, but his brutality kept worser things in check and with him gone, it gave rise to instability, religious exteminism and an archaic societal system to dominate the region.

  15. This brings up an interesting question, what is more important, liberty or security. This man was a ruthless dictator who butchered innocent people but at the same time brought a sense of order to his country. This is an important question we must look at.
