This guy should have been taken out 25+ years ago. Amin ranks right up there with the Hussein's, Hitler's and Pol Pot's of the world.

"Mississippi Massala" -- a really good film -- portrays the lives of one Asian family expelled from Uganda during Amin's reign. I really recommend this movie; it's funny, sweet, ironic and sad, and does an excellent job of taking big ol' geopolitics down to a personal level.
