Clearly Hussein wants people to think of him as the reincarnation of Nebuchadnezzar or Saladin. But he is not.

I saw tv bio of him once, he was born in the same town as Tamerlane. If he thinks he's anyone's reincarnation, that's the one.

You sure about that? I thought Tamerlane was from up in one of the 'Stans, not Iraq.

Shakhrisabz, in Uzbekistan, is the birthplace of Tamerlane.

"I am the scourge of God appointed to chastise you,
since no one knows the remedy for your iniquity except me.
You are wicked, but I am more wicked than you, so be silent!"

--Spoken by Tamerlane Khan before the the sacking of Damascus
