A brutal dictator who enjoyed US support until he ceased following their orders.
Saddam Hussein was an Iraqi politician.
In 1983 Ronald Reagan sent Donald Rumsfeld (then working for drug company G.D. Searle & Co.) on a tour of middle east capitals, including Baghdad. He met Saddam on December 20, 1983 Baghdad, where he was to establish "direct contact between an envoy of President Reagan and President Saddam Hussein," while emphasizing "his close relationship" with the president. This was an act of support for Iraq, considering that it was illegally using chemical weapons in the war with Iran.

|Jörg Haider||“Asked about the impression that Saddam is better for him than Bush, Haider said: "The choice is really hard for me. Both have been at war with international law and committed human rights violations. The one is lucky enough to command a world power, hence the power to write the laws, while the other has been a weak dictator"”||Jörg Haider|
