ABSTRACT
The article profiles Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Saddam was considered a menace to the Middle East that has dubious distinction of being the world's best known and most hated Arab leader. His troops invaded Iran over a border dispute in 1980, which was the start of a bloody eight-year war that gained him nothing. Moreover, he picked on a much smaller neighbor, oil-rich Kuwait and later declared the country as an Iraqi province on August 2,1990.
