"Generalissimo Field Marshal Doctor Professor President-for-Life King of Scotland Idi Amin Dada of Uganda hajii"
Here, thanks again to the TimesOnline, is a whole series of historical articles dealing with that most loathsome and odious of creatures, the now deceased Idi Amin Dada.
Idi Amin, perhaps the ultimate archetype of the military man gone bad. Rated in the year 2000 one of the ten worst dictators of the last thousand years. Had an incredible sadistic streak about him - - combined with certain degree of "street smart" savvy that made him doubly dangerous to deal with. AND TOO SUFFERED FROM SYPHILITIC INDUCED MENTAL ABERRATION WHICH ONLY MADE MATTERS MUCH WORSE?
And - - yes - - Amin was a Muslim who had made the pilgrimage to Mecca, thereby justifiably claiming the title of hajii!!
Amin - - gone - - BUT HARDLY FORGOTTEN!!
