For those of you who don’t realize how much of a despicable comment this is, Saddam Hussein’s two eldest sons, Uday and Qusay, personified the terror of their father’s rule and the two men were even more cruel and ruthless than their notorious father.
NY Post Qusay Hussein stayed out of the public eye, was known for the ”cleansing” of overcrowded prisons by killing several thousand prisoners by shooting or torture.
But it was Uday Hussein, who turned torture into an art form, killed as a hobby and raped women for sport. He once turned up at a pal’s wedding and raped the bride – causing the groom to shoot himself in the head on the spot. Uday shot an army officer who forgot to salute him and beat another to death when the man refused to allow him to dance with his wife.
Uday regularly ordered his guards to snatch young women off the street so that he could rape them for fun, and kept pet lions to prove his manhood. He clubbed to death Saddam’s favorite bodyguard in front of guests at a high-society party, using an electric carving knife.
He was known for raping young women–some as young as 12–whom he found attractive, threatening their families’ lives if they complained or spoke out against the crime. He would sometimes torture and kill his victims after sex.
As head of the Iraqi Olympic Committee, Uday tried to build national pride by torturing and murdering athletes who failed to win in competition. Common torture practice included caning feet, cutting out tongues and prodding victims with electric batons – a toy Uday always kept on hand. Others were dragged through a gravel pit until they had no skin on their backs and were then made to jump into sewage tanks to make infection set in.
Qusay and Uday Hussein, were killed after a three-hour firefight with U.S. forces in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul. It is widely believed that the two men were even more cruel and ruthless than their notorious father, and their death was celebrated among many Iraqis.
