Saddam's Childhood Neighborhood

Saddam's Childhood Neighborhood


Tikrit, Iraq (IQ)
We all know that Saddam was from Tikrit, but this is the actual neighborhood he was raised in. I'll tell you more but then I have to kill myself.

This from the Minneapolis/St. Paul newspaper the Star Tribune:

Saddam Hussein, by the way, was born under King Ghazi on April 28, 1937, in the village of Ouija outside Tikrit. His father died (according to some accounts) or abandoned the family about the time Saddam was born. He was raised by his mother and at times by a physically abusive stepfather and his uncles. The family was not well off.

Excellent AlbinoFlea, it is great to have factual accounts (just so I don't sound like I am talking out of my rear-end).

Thanks!!!
