I have previously made light of Saddam's tendency to keep the government of Iraq in the family, but this report on Saddam's love shack has:
Saddam's wife, Sajida Khairallah Telfah, is also his cousin. Together they had three daughters and two sons, Odai and Qusai.I'd be tempted to ask how many generations that has been going on, but Saddam is reputed to be a bastard, among other things. But maybe it explains the kids.
Lots of other "intimate" details by following the links. Continuing from the first:
One of the airbrushed paintings depicted a topless blonde woman, with a green demon behind her, pointing a finger at a mythic hero. From the tip of her finger came a giant serpent, which had wrapped itself around the warrior.I also like him eating off china stolen from the Kuwaiti royal family.
Another showed a buxom woman chained to a barren desert mountain ledge, with a huge dragon diving down to kill her with sharpened talons.
The home's 1960s look - parodied in the series of "Austin Powers" spy spoofs - inspired a round of imitations from soldiers slogging door to door.
"Yeah, baaabeee," said Carter, doing his best imitation of actor Mike Myers' character.
"Shagadelic," another soldier shouted.
Indeed, the carpet was navy blue shag.
