The Baath Party came to power in Iraq in 1963 by the USA CIA. The Baath Party came from a NAZI college youth intelligencia of the late 1940's that loved Hitlers plan's for a new-world-order.
The CIA supported the Baath Party because it was opposed to communism like Hitler. In the early 60's the primary interest of USA was fighting communism.
In 1968 Saddam Hussein was put in power of Baath by the CIA.
Like all the rest of our little USA dictators too many to mention Saddam got out of control after 1990, largely because the CIA financed ten year war against Iran didn't go well. From 1990 on the CIA wanted Saddam out.
Today the CIA will put a new man in charge.
The devil is the USA, Saddam is just one of his many Bitches.
