How to use "Fedayeen saddam" in context?
Saddam Hussein was the president of Iraq from 1979 until 2003. Under Hussein, Iraq became a major regional power and a key member of the Arab League. Saddam's rule became increasingly authoritarian and he was frequently accused of human rights abuses. In 2003, a U.S.-led invasion led to his overthrow and execution.
