Protect the Hairs of this Mustache!

CQ found this gem among the captured Iraqi documents that have been declassified and translated. It's a speech Saddam wrote for the dedication of a mosque in 2002. It's about his mustache. Excerpts:

God has blessed us, and in us, he has blessed our mustaches, as well as any mustache jealous for his nation, his homeland, and his people.

Today, as I bequeath these hairs of my mustache to you, at the Umm-al-Ma`arik (TC: the Mother of All Battles) Mosque, I want you to remember the values that I have bequeathed to you.

Protect the hairs of this mustache with your protection of Iraq. Aid it with honor, and with the dignity of your nation and faith.

The man was certainly proud of his 'stache. Although I don't think I would find protecting Hussein's mustache hairs as good motivation for fighting.
