Idi Amin Dada Oumee was a Ugandan military officer who served as the President of Uganda from 1971 to 1979.

Popularly known as the "Butcher of Uganda", he is considered one of the cruellest despots in world history.

Idi Amin gives away his plans to invade Israel.

General Idi Amin säger kanske lite för mycket om sina planer i denna dokumentär från 1974.

If I may quote ex-Ugandan dictator Idi Amin:

"We guarantee freedom of speech.  We don't guarantee freedom after speech".

Try not to believe all the communist victor propaganda.

Why did you mention Hitler when Joseph Stalin starved 8 million Ukrainians and 35 million Russians in his Siberian gulag labour camps ?


From: TAB00GA


Idi Amin Dada was close friends with Arabs, his goal was to eliminate Israel, however he was so-called also a friend with Golda Maeir for entertainment!!

As a vegetarian as I am, I find Idi Amin Dada Cannibalism absolutely disgusting!!


Canada doesn't teach much about Russian history and its warmongering... and of course let's not forget all the U.S. killing fields around the world too!


From: Harold27Z


It sounds like Canadian history books fail to mention Lenin, Engels and Totsky were imported into Russia to initiate their evil sadistic Wall Street financed communism.

If I recall correctly, Trotsky was detained at Halifax, NS but released upon orders from the Brit Establishment who wanted communism so they could confiscate the Tzar's wealth etc.

I doubt the Canadian history books mention Eisenhower's Rhine Meadows death camps where 1.5m POWs were starved, frozen and beaten to death by GIs.   Red Cross food parcels were not allowed to be given to the prisoners.  Civillians were shot at the fences in case they threw food to starving POWs.  The POWs had to sleep in trenches or tents in freezing snow.

Maybe someone can remind me how the West stands for freedom and justice.

Maybe... I haven't been studying in Canada.

I'm sure Eisenhower did his part...

More recently BUSH and cronies in Iraq

The Iraq-Iran War lasted from 1980 to 1988 and during that time there were about 105,000 Iraqi deaths according to the Washington Post. (1,2)

According to Howard Teicher, a former National Security Council official, the U.S. provided the Iraqis with billions of dollars in credits and helped Iraq in other ways such as making sure that Iraq had military equipment including biological agents This surge of help for Iraq came as Iran seemed to be winning the war and was close to Basra. 

The U.S. was not adverse to both countries weakening themselves as a result of the war, but it did not appear to want either side to win.
