How Did Saddam Hussein Rise to Power?

Answer

Saddam Hussein joined the Ba'ath party in 1957, at the age of 20. He started out as a low-ranking member of the Party responsible for leading his schoolmates in rioting. In 1959, he was chosen to be a member of an assassination squad. On October 7, 1959, Saddam and others attempted, but failed, to assassinate the prime minister. During the following years, Saddam became an important leader within the Ba'ath Party. In July 1968, when the Ba'ath Party again gained power, Saddam was made vice-president. On July 16, 1979, the president of Iraq resigned and Saddam officially took the position.
