The complete emancipation of women from the ties which held them back in the past, during the ages of despotism and ignorance, is a basic aim of the Party and the Revolution. Women make up one half of society. Our society will remain backward and in chains unless its women are liberated, enlightened and educated.More Saddam Hussein quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Great Iraqi men and women, members of the families of the martyrs, You have offered the homeland the best thing you could afford. Thus you have come to merit love and gratitude from all Iraqis and from its plains, mountains, skies and waters. You are good sons of this country. You have offered to the country great men who have averted harm from the country and paved its way to glory and greatness.More Saddam Hussein quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In class 92-1 of Infantry Officer Basic course we were in a large lecture hall in building 4 at Ft. Benning, GA. Desert Storm had just finished less than a year previously and we were one of the first classes of new infantry officers to get a look at all the cool intelligence from Iraq. We were there for an ultra-serious national security lecture.
There were at least 200 young officers listening to Colonels and Generals discuss various Geo-Political issues. Questions from the audience were taken, as we listened intently about Saddam Hussein's suppression of the Kurds, or what King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia thought. "What would happen if..." were the types of questions being asked.
In front of all these senior officers, one of my fellow young officers raises his hand and stands to ask his question completely straight-faced, "If Turkey attacked Iraq in the rear, would Greece help?"
There was near pandemonium for 5 solid minutes as the General tried to compose himself. I still remember the joke tellers name, "C" but since this is a public forum, I'll keep it back. I have never heard any crowd of people ever laugh so hard before or since. Had to pay homage to the single best delivered joke I've ever heard.More Jokes about Saddam Hussein [01/02/2018 12:01:02]
