He studied law at the Cairo Law School in 1962. In 1971, Hussein received his Law Degree from the University of Bagdad. Hope this is what you where looking for.
they found Saddam Hussein In a hole with a large beard
After the Iran-Iraq War of 1980-1988; Saddam Hussein consolidated his forces, and rebuilt his military. Two years later he moved his forces into the country of Kuwait to control the oil reserves located there.
There are several reasons why Saddam Hussein invaded Iran in 1980, including:
At the time, Iran was a bigger threat to the US, and giving Iran another strong enemy to worry about would help US in it's machinations against Iran.
The United States has leveled numerous accusations at Saddam Hussein, so just choosing one is rather odd. However, if you are looking for the accusation which was supposed to justify the Iraq War of 2003-2011, this was the accusation that Saddam had stockpiles of "weapons of mass destruction", generally chemical and biological weapons.
No he is not. Saddam Hussien was killed in 2006, but there have been sightings of bin Laden since then.
No. Although Iraq began a war with Iran while the Hostage Crisis was ongoing, it was seen by the US government as a war between two brutal dictatorships; both of them unfriendly to the United States, and a war in which the United States wanted neither side to win. Sadaam Hussein in Iraq was never seen as a US ally, any more than the Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran was seen as a US ally.

Free elections were held in Iraq
Saddam accused oil companies in Kuwait of slant drilling. The Iraqi oil fields do not extend beneath Kuwait, so American companies drilled at a shallow angle, from Kuwait to within Iraq, to tap into Iraq's oil field. If you had a gold deposit beneath your property, the gold belongs to you, the property owner. If your neighbor digs a tunnel down from their property, then laterally to a point under yours to reach and extract the your gold, that is theft.
Saddam met with April Glaspie, a US Ambassador at the time, to discuss his dispute. Glaspie led Saddam to believe the US would not intervene if Saddam attacked Kuwait, but that was not true. See the link below.
After his war with Iran, Saddam considered himself as victorious for defeating Iran (as he thought). so his ego grew so large that he wanted to get back Kuwait as a part of Iraq!
Of course, the Americans that encouraged him, and helped him to fight the Iranians, opposed him this time, so the operation desert storm happened, and the other Arab governments that supported him with money on Iran, also faced him this time, it was a bad decision for him, strategically, to go to war with both Kuwait and Iran, but he was stupid. we all know how his country and him ended up to be.
To acquire more territory and resources that he believed were justifiably a part of the Iraqi nation.
Also, it is alleged that April Glass of the United States said to the Iraqis that America wouldn't mind.
The official reason is that Iraq had decided to re-annex Kuwait, which was the 19th province of Iraq long ago and Iraq felt it had been taken away illegally.
This is true, but the reason Iraq decided to re-annex Kuwait was the Iraqis caught the Kuwaiti government slant-drilling into Iraq's richest oil field, the al-Rumaila, and ordered them to stop. Kuwait wouldn't stop doing it, so Saddam dealt with the problem.
Hussein was found guilty by an Iraq tribunal was executed by hanging.
The cold war ended; there was no nation capable of preventing the US...as the US was the most powerful nation in the world in 1991. With no Soviet Union to prevent operations, with the life blood of the world in the balance (oil), the US requested approval...the UN saw no reason not to agree to it; no one had anything to lose by the decision...except for Iraq.
3 brothers and 2 sisters, one of whom died at age 3.
The US did not start the war in the Persian Gulf; border disputes started the Iran-Iraq War in 1980-1988.
Saddam Hussein (1937-2006) was a soldier in the army of Iraq and later a politician in the Ba'ath ruling party. He rose to the position of vice-chairman of the Revolutionary Command, and later president (actually dictator) of his country.
He led his country to war against neighboring Iran in a protracted conflict from 1980 to 1988. After invading Kuwait in 1990, he maintained his power despite the defeat of his army by US and coalition forces. His support for terrorism and his research into nuclear and other weapons brought him into conflict with the United States, who had originally supported him in the 1970's.
He was deposed by the US invasion in 2003. He was tried, convicted, and hanged for criminal abuses against the people of Iraq, most notably the Kurds but including members of his own party.
Until Operation Desert Storm (Jan-Feb 1991), the eight year war between Iran and Iraq was called the Persian Gulf War, and the US was also involved. Therefore, which Persian Gulf War are you referring to?
Saddam Hussein's political party was the Republican Party.
George W. Bush wanted to finish "Daddy's war" and look good to those pulling the strings behind the power in Washington.
There was no real reason to finish Saddam Hussein off, he was a strongman in the Middle East and the United States and other powers understood that style of leadership and as long as things remained "stable" in the Middle East all was good.
"W" did it by lying about the dangers which Saddam posed to stability, particularly about weapons of mass destruction (nukes). He lied to the people of the US and the world. We bought his lies and invaded.
This is not to say Saddam was a good guy, he wasn't, but there are a lot of leaders just like him in the Middle East and we can work with them because they keep things good enough for the United States to pursue their interests in the world.
Sorry for giving such a cynical answer, but it is the truth.
There areweapons in Iraq, but that doesn't technically mean they're there for the same reason. Their are many reasons why weapons are kept and owned by many people; including normal residents and those who come to visit the country and leave eventually. Some reasons why most people in Iraq have at least has one weapon:
1.To protect their families in case a stranger tries to attack or steal.
2.Reach out a helping hand if a dangerous crime occurs thought the neighborhood/community.
3.For a protector of the country's protection for himself as well for others.
4.A race/religious comparison in the country [including the government sometimes].
5.Murder of people.
Hussein, who was Sunni, wanted to murder Shiite Muslims because he feared their growing power in the south, and that they would revolt against him.
The Rulers hardly have any religion or Faith. Their Faith is Power. No Muslim (Sunni or Shia etc) is permitted by Allah Almighty to kill any Human being without a just cause. Killing an innocent human being (irrespective of his caste, creed, color, religion) is like killing the whole humanity. This is what Allah Almighty says in the Qur'an. Thus the Rulers kill for their Power, not religion.
Macbeth is a fictional character and Hitler was a real person. Macbeth understands his crime and Hitler was unaware of his. Macbeth is urged to commit his crime by an overbearing, ambitious wife and Hitler was a sexless vegetarian whose megalomania was all his own.
