Dictators with a sense of humour…

Yup Saddam is an evil guy. He's committed war crimes and crimes against humanity. But I've just this minute remembered something my father told me when I was younger – probably a year or two after the Gulf War when we were discussing the subject.

After the invasion of Kuwait, Bahrain and Qatar were condemning Iraq and threatening action. Saddam Hussein was questioned about this and replied:

"Qatar? Ha! Bahrain? Ha! I took Kuwait in a week… I'll take Bahrain in a day and I'll take Qatar by fax."

On reflection I'm guessing that this was just a common Arabic joke at the time… but if anyone can find something like this attributed to Saddam then that would be brilliant :D.
