Saddam probably killed a small number of people with his own hands, i.e. around a dozen or so. However, he was responsible for numerous genocides around Iraq which resulted in around 200,000 deaths, he was responsible for the Iran-Iraq War, which claimed the lives of over a 1,000,000 people, he was responsible for the invasion of Kuwait all lives lost in that conflict, etc.
Saddam Hussein used many methods to kill his own people. He would use torture methods to kill people, hangings, chemicals, and shootings.
Saddam Hussein killed many people for no reason . He also created genocide between the Kurds !
Saddam Hussein was a brutal leader because he was genocidal to many.
No! Saddam had Freemasons arrested and many were executed
more than 6500 people
There are many, many of these differences. The two people were from very different time periods. Also, Saddam Hussein was an Iraqi Arab, Hitler was a naturalized German whose family came from Austria. Saddam Hussein did not give orders to kill as many people as Hitler gave orders to kill. As a traditional Arab person, Saddam Hussein cared a lot about making sure that the people with the most power were mostly close relatives of his, from the same clan as him. Hitler did not care very much about what FAMILY people were from, but instead, he used other ways to judge how much power people should have. Many times, Saddam Hussein gave orders that people in his own family should be killed. Hitler never did this. Also, Saddam sometimes punished people by killing them himself, Hitler did not. Saddam had children, and liked to have sex. Hitler did not have children, and almost never wanted to have anything to do with women. Both of them ordered the use of poison gas in battle, but only Hitler was himself *hurt* by poison gas in battle, in World War I. Hitler was convicted of a crime and spent time in prison -- he came to power only after he was released from prison. By contrast, Saddam was convicted of crimes, spent time in prison, and was put to death, but this was only after he lost power. Saddam was put to death by hanging because he was convicted in a court. Hitler was not put to death by anybody, but committed suicide by shooting himself. There was a time when Hitler wanted to be a writer and an artist. By contrast, there was a time when Saddam Hussein wanted to be a writer, but Saddam Hussein never thought about becoming an artist.

NO. Saddam Hussein, as a Sunni Muslim, derived most of his support from fellow Sunni Muslims. The Shiite majority of Iraq was vehemently opposed to Saddam Hussein and, as a result, he engaged in many repressive campaigns against them. Most notably, the Massacre of Shiites at Dujail was the only such repression for which Saddam Hussein was tried prior to his execution in 2006.

The current kill count is estimated to be over one million people, approaching closer to being two million killed. Which would mean on average, 80,000 plus lives were taken a year, for each of the 23 years Saddam Hussein was in power over Iraq. The murders tallied were those killed by Suddam Hussein himself, under his order or killed because of him. Saddam Hussein's entire kill count is unknown due to the fact he buried bodies in many unknown grave sites. We can only guess or estimate how many people he killed but no one really knows for sure and he did not even know how many people he had killed. Out of the mass graves that were discovered following the US occupation of Iraq in 2003, suggest that the total combined figure for Kurds, Shias and dissidents alone that were killed could be as high as 300,000.
Saddam ignited 600 oil fields. Read more at the Related Link below.
Yes! Many times actually, it was one of his fav places to be.
I'm sure many people have been tried and executed by Iraqi courts. You may be referring to Saddam Hussein.
Saddam Hussein was a Sunni Muslim, but he was not terribly religious. In politics, he was a secularist and dictator from the Ba'ath Party. He has often been considered a fascist for the way he ran Iraq as a police state.
The Iraqi people have many different feelings about us. most of them are happy about the removall of Saddam Hussein but others of them feel that we should get out because we are causing so much sectarian violence. most of them however, think that it is good that we removed Saddam Hussein but want us too leave soon.
Absolutely yes! He also caused to be killed many hundreds of thousands of Shia Moslems and Kurds. His 2 sons if anything, were more sadistic.
No, they lived many decades apart. Betcha went to public schools, didn't you.
Saddam Hussein was the dictator of Iraq. He was a leader who ruled with arrogance and brutality. Many times, he murdered those who simply opposed his rule. He even murdered people because they were of a different ethnicity than him. Hussein was unpredictable and tyrannical. Most United States citizens also believed that Saddam Hussein had WMD (weapons of mass destruction), which he did. Hussein stole oil from Kuwait and refused to stop. Additionally, he threatened to use biological warfare against the world. Thus, no one trusted him - not even his own people.
