Where do they get this stuff?
They're only looking at part of the picture because Saddam does have a communist intellectual foundation. But, though he came to power in the 70s as a client of Leonid Brezhnev, Stalin was his idol.
he coincidences of the appearance of the pics of Hussein with the British boy and of Stalin in the poster in the article above are not simply by chance. That whole thing was Hussein's publicity stunt. He had control of the cameras and the angles.
Check it out... the boy with Saddam has the same haircut as the boy with the violin in the poster of Stalin!
But Hussein's Obsession with Nebuchadnezzar is paramount.
Sand between their toes must make them mean or something. ;^)
