It was not the life that Uday had intended. Of Saddam's two sons, he was the flamboyant one - towering well over 6ft, with a penchant for fast cars and loud and drunken parties, expensive suits and flowing robes, as well as murder, rape and torture.

Uday: career of rape, torture and murder

He was a monster even by the standards of Saddam Hussein's Iraq, a sadist with a taste for cruelty so extreme that even his father was forced to acknowledge that his first-born son would not be a worthy heir. And yet for all that Uday Saddam Hussein symbolised the brutality of the Iraqi regime, his powers were severely circumscribed. Although he retained the privileges of the much-indulged son of a dictator, he was shunted from the real centres of power in the military and security services by his quieter, younger brother Qusay.

Although Uday nominally had a role in politics - following his election to parliament with 99% of the vote in 1999 - he was studiously absent from Iraqi television during the dying days of the regime. It was clear controllers realised that showing too many pictures of the most hated man in Iraq was hardly going to spur resistance.

Why should we believe any more of the lies told by the aggressors?

Especially from people who've just made a suspected gang-rapist a Supreme Court judge?

The destruction of Iraq was wholly malicious and entirely based on fraudulent claims, quite cynically fed to the American and British public.

It was over a year before the truth of this story got into the Western media.

On January 6, 1992, The New York Times published an op-ed piece by John MacArthur entitled "Remember Nayirah, Witness for Kuwait?"[57] MacArthur discovered that Nayirah was the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the U.S., Saud Nasir al-Sabah.[57]  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nayirah_testimony#Revelation

That fraud, created from whole cloth by advertising executives, is what tipped the US public into supporting the invasion. 

But hundreds of Americans knew perfectly well that a completely fraudulent atrocity story had been told to Congress on October 10, 1990 - not one of them blabbed about it!

Great for who?

Iraq was a stable society where girls went to school, Christians were protected and alcohol was sold on the street.

Until malicious people smashed the whole place up to steal the oil.
