: One of my dad's uncles was killed by Saddam, but Kassem's rise to power was the reason why my grandfather quit the Iraqi army & left for Lebanon, then the U.S. According to my grandfather, Kassem was worse toward the Christians than Saddam. BUT, the U.S. gov't, via the CIA, has manipulated Iraq's history & people for a much longer time.
xxx Let me just preface this correction with the comment that my sister did, in fact, hit me on the head with a hammer when I was little. There. That said, it was NOT Kassem who was anti-Christian & the reason why my grandfather left Iraq. My grandfather had a problem with *al-Bakr* - who was anti-Christian & the reason my grandfather left Iraq. The part about Saddam killing one of my uncles remains true, though. Not that anyone cares about what my grandfather did or didn't do & who he didn't like, but I just thought I'd correct myself for MY sake.
