Believer’s Palace
Originally uploaded by 1SG Karen.

Saddam Hussein’s ultimate safe house, a bunker beneath Believer’s Palace along the banks of the Tigris River, was constructed to survive a nuclear blast just 250 yards away. The bunker was designed by Herr Esser, a German engineer whose grandmother designed Adolph Hitler’s bunker.

I’d ask what the odds are of that coincidence, but then I’d be reminded “there are no coincidences, just synchronicity.”
