Saddam Hussein’s distinguished tenure as president of Iraq lasted nearly twenty-five years. During that time, President Hussein sought to bring the economy of Iraq and the entire Arab world into the modern era. He held his nation together through the turmoil two wars, until he was finally removed from power by a United States-led coalition in 2003.

President Hussein never knew his father. As a child, he lost a brother to cancer and many of his formative years were spent with an uncle while his mother suffered from depression. When Hussein’s mother finally remarried, Saddam’s new older brothers subjected him to horrible treatment and humiliation. Things got so bad that a preteen Saddam fled to live with his uncle. It was there that he became a devout Muslim, finding that the teachings of Islam brought a new direction and meaning to his life.

The nation of Iraq has always been torn by a number of political, religious, and ethnic tensions. These tensions made unity almost impossible but, more than any other leader, President Hussein was able to hold Iraq together. The civil war that has engulfed Iraq since Hussein’s removal from power shows just how impressive his leadership really was. Nobody besides Saddam Hussein has ever truly led the nation of Iraq.

Hussein capitalized on Iraq’s natural petroleum resources to reap huge profits. He in turn used that money to provide for the security of his nation and to protect Iraq’s interests. At the same time, the new influx of money and an increase in international trade modernized Iraq, improving the quality of life for Iraqi citizens across all its factions. Iraq’s social programs were the envy of all Middle Eastern countries, and President Hussein’s literacy and education programs drew international attention. To a great extent, Iraq owes its progress over the last quarter-century to Hussein’s powerful and iconic leadership.
