    Saddam Hussein The Middle East is an extremely volatile region of the world, and much of the current instability may be due to one man, Saddam Hussein. During the last few years, under Hussein's direction, Iraq has gone from being an oil rich country to a country that is suffering major embargoes and is low on supplies. Iraqi leaders are trying to leave as they realize how power can corrupt a man. If Hussein stays in power, the future looks bleak for the Gulf region. Iraq used to be a prosperous...

    Controversial Issues: Justifying the Persian Gulf War On January 16, 1991 the Gulf War had officially started, and for good reason. In August of 1990, Saddam Hussein sent armies to Kuwait, to take it over. When the United States had unwittingly given Saddam help when fighting against the Iranians, we had also given him a military that was one of the world's largest and most lethal. And so, when Saddam did not comply with the ultimatum that the U. S. had given him, Congress voted for the use of ...

    At 2: 00 A. M. (local time) on August second 1990, Saddam Hussein sent the Iraqi military across the border into Kuwait, and sparked a war whose repercussions are still being felt. Today what eventually became known as the Persian Gulf War, featured the largest air operation in history; and a senseless destruction paralleled only to Danzig or Hiroshima. Even though Saddam was the one who physically invaded Kuwait, is balking at United Nations resolutions, and is generally known as a tyrant. He ...

    As Afghan opposition groups and U. S. armed forces continue their successes in the war against the Taliban and al Qaeda, the American debate has quickly turned to the question of where the fight against terrorism should go next. In numerous public statements, President Bush has talked about a wide-ranging campaign against global terrorism. He has not committed to military operations against any other countries or terrorist organizations, but he has made it clear that the broader struggle against...

    The United States of America was justified in taking a dominate military role in the Persian Gulf crisis. This role was justified due to Saddam Hussein invasion of Kuwait, the threat of chemical warfare and the encouragement of the United States Congress and the United Nations Security Council. This conflict grew out of tension over oil, with Iraq c laming that Kuwait was pumping oil from a field on the Iraq - Kuwait border and not sharing the profit that arose from this field. In the beginning,...

    The United States could not have stood idly by while the proletariat's suffered under the vindictive Iraqi regime. The coalition's invasion of Iraq was justified. Iraq brings suffering upon its own people. Hundreds of thousands died unnatural deaths as an outcome of Saddam's actions. Many of these were Shi'a Muslims. Although they represent the majority of the population they are banned from practicing many of the pillars of their religion. (Life Under Saddam Hussein) The brutal oppression of t...

    The Blair-Hitch Project "When people decided not to confront fascism, they were doing the popular thing, they were doing it for good reasons and they were good people... but they made the wrong decision." This is Tony Blair suggesting that Saddam Hussein is as much of a threat to world democracy as Adolf Hitler, but how much of a threat is Saddam Hussein to Britain. It is true that he is a cruel dictator who has a blatant disregard for human rights, but it is unlikely he has yearnings for univer...

He always seems to get away and to know how close the troops are to him. They have killed his two sons and the President of the United States is not even raising our terror alert.

    The United States is completely justified with invading Iraq. First of all Saddam Hussein would be a worse threat if not stopped now. He may have done nothing to start this war, but this war is also a war on terrorism. Many have seen the photos of what Hussein does to his own people, humanity cannot let this happen. The Iraqis deserve a free and democratic government. It is not right to let them be ruled by this dictating tyrant anymore. Finally we must rid the world of a sadistic, war mongerin...

    Saddam Hussein is obviously a very dangerous and deranged man. He views himself as being on the same level as a god. He has no respect for human life other than his own. He lies, cheats and murders to advance himself and to get what he wants. Saddam Hussein is obsessed with power and he will not stop at anything when it comes to gaining and maintaining his power. Is this the type of man we should allow to have and control chemical, biological and nuclear weapons? This is the big debate going on ...

    I think we should go to war with Iraq. Saddam Hussein is trying to or is creating weapons of mass destruction. U. N. inspectors have gone in and are searching for weapons, but the 3 or 4 groups of people only makes up a total of about 70 people. Saddam Hussein reminds me a lot like Hitler. Saddam has killed his own people like Hitler did. Saddam also thinks the same way that Hitler did, they both are evil and two faced back stabbers. Saddam is a liar and a back stabbing cheater.

    Saddam Hussein played "a big game" with political representatives of the whole world and George Bush S. for a long time. This led to a war of the Persian Gulf. After the first round the score was 1: 0 for the world and the USA. But nothing could knock down Saddam. His people suffered every day with hunger, poverty and diseases intensified by restrictions imposed on Iraq. But Saddam still stayed on. All the time he laughed at UN Commissioners trying to monitor the situation especially of weapons...

    Huddled in an underground bunker with his country smoldering in ruins around him, Iraqi President SADDAM HUSSEIN seemed buried for good in February 1992. U. N. forces had devastated Iraq in the six-week Persian Gulf War; sewage systems and telephone lines were out, electrical grids were down, and roads were impassable. Harsh international sanctions and reparation debts hobbled recovery prospects for the oil-rich republic of Iraq. But Hussein resurfaced, unrepentant for the failed invasion of Kuw...
