Saddam Hussein was a delusional, paranoid megalomaniac who believed his army was the strongest in the Middle East.That part we knew. However this is priceless:
It was a paranoia that at times reached levels of absurdity and was "something to behold," Woods said.They were scared of this:
For example, in 2001 the Iraq General Security Directorate told Saddam that the Pokemon cartoon character in Hebrew meant "I am Jewish" and "represented a subterfuge by international Zionism to undermine Iraq's security," according to the report.
The horror! Damn those Zionists.
I can't believe there isn't a Baghdad Indymedia. Saddam would have been one of the moderators for sure!
