Sep 1997 In the sixth century BC, Babylon, with its hanging gardens and Tower of Babel, was the greatest city in the world. Today it's been largely rebuilt by Saddam Hussein in an effort to acquire for himself, the mantle of greatness that surrounded Babylon's famous King, Nebuchadnezzar. But as the yellow brick walls of Babylon rise from the desert sands once more and white stone palaces stand proud around the ruins, the site's museum is locked and empty to keep out robbers. Sanctions are destroying Iraq's economy and Saddam is an international pariah. In reality Babylon is a tribute solely to former glory, despite Saddam's dreams.
