Calls today's Iraq a 'Harvard for terrorism'
In another of his controversial rallies on tuesday, US presidential
candidate praised former Iraq dictator and tyrant Saddam Hussein, a
man who suppressed and impressed his rule on Iraq by force for over
three decades and was widely considered as one of America's topmost
However, Trump actually began presenting his views on a good
note, he said "Saddam Hussein was a bad guy, right? He was a really
bad guy" now Trump should have stopped here and concentrated on more
intricate issues, but he went ahead to sour the whole thing. He
continued "But you know what he did well? He killed terrorists. He did
that so well and didn't read the rights to them" And as over 2000
people making up his audience erupted into laughter, he said "Iraq is
now a Harvard for terrorists, you want to learn how to be a terrorist?
Then go to Iraq. Ok? ".
It may not be the first time the highly sentimental presidential
candidate is giving a thumbs up to the rule of past dictators, but his
statements on tuesday have attracted so much attention and mixed
reactions. Some of his colleagues in the republican race have rushed
to create a gap between their ideas and his opinions. Immediately
after the rally, in an interview on Fox News, a house speaker pointed
out the record of Hussein's human rights abuse. Which the dead
dictator had continuously subjected Iraq to. The House Speaker, Paul
Ryan also reminded people that Saddam Hussein was at the top of the
most evil rulers of the 20th century. Who even committed mass genocide
against his own people with chemical weapons. He added that though he
preferred Trump as a President to Hillary, he still would speak his
mind when his colleague said the wrong thing.
Meanwhile, the whole of Hillary's campaign have stood up to
condemn Trump's ideas. Jake Sullivan in a statement said that he could
see the rationale in a US president thumbing up the rule of an evil
dictator. Who paid families to contribute to the course of suicide
bombing. Who hated the Israeli nation, and wished who could step into
the shoes of Adolf Hitler. Jake Sullivan also emphasised that Trumps
twisted mentality about dictatorship could be very dangerous if he
ever gets into power.
In October last year, in a rally, Trump said that "the world would
be 100% percent perfect if dictators like Saddam Hussein, and Gadhafi
were still existing in power". And his statements are a pointer to how
ruthless he could be as a commander-in-chief. "His praise for brutal
strongmen seem to know no bounds".
