Saddam Hussein: Life and Execution of the Iraqi Dictator

Saddam Hussein: Life and Execution of the Iraqi Dictator He is often considered one of the most feared dictators of the twentieth century, and was once named "the most dangerous man in the world." Saddam Hussein was born to a peasant family in Iraq. He eventually joined the Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party, and rose through its ranks over a series of years. He then seized power, and ran Iraq under a dictatorship for decades. While he did improve some aspects of Iraqi life, his thirst for power in the Middle East was the cause of wars and destruction. He was finally convicted of crimes against humanity and executed in 2006. In this video, WatchMojo.com takes a look at the life, rule and execution of Saddam Hussein.
