Saddam Hussein, President of Iraq from 1979 until his assassination in 1990. After Doomsday, Saddam launched another offensive into Iran as part of the continuation of the First Gulf War, taking large parts of the Islamic Republic. By 1988, Saddam would have a stand-off with the Gulf Cooperation Council, facing off at the Iraq-Kuwait border. This would lead to the Second Gulf War in 1990, ultimately paving way for his assassination.

Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (Japanese: 戦場のメリークリスマス Hepburn: Senjō no Merī Kurisumasu, "Merry Christmas on the Battlefield"), also known in many European editions as Furyo (俘虜, Japanese for "prisoner of war"), is a 1983 British-Japanese war film. It was directed by Nagisa Oshima, written by Oshima and Paul Mayersberg, and produced by Jeremy Thomas. It stars David Bowie, Tom Conti, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Takeshi Kitano and Jack Thompson.
The film is based on Sir Laurens van der Post's experiences as a Japanese prisoner of war during World War II as depicted in his books The Seed and the Sower (1963) and The Night of the New Moon (1970). Sakamoto additionally wrote the score and the vocal theme "Forbidden Colours", featuring David Sylvian.
The film was entered into the 1983 Cannes Film Festival on August 25, 1983 in competition for the Palme d'Or. Sakamoto's score won the film a BAFTA Award for Best Film Music.
It was released in the UK on August 25, 1983, a mere one month before Doomsday. All the cast including Ryuichi Sakamoto and composer David Sylvian are assumed to have been killed during Doomsday.
It is considered to be one of the best pre-Doomsday drama films and is currently being reproduced in new formats. A remake is in question by 2023, the film's 40th anniversary featuring actors from the ANZC and Japan.

Chinese boat people arriving in the Philippines, 1985.
As the nation began to stabilize in mid-1985, Coast Guard vessels reported several various sea craft - yachts, fishing boats, tugboats - off the coast of Ilocos Sur, Pangasinan and Batanes Provinces. Upon inspection, these were found to contain refugees, mainly from China, totaling about 140,000. For the first time, Filipinos learned the extent of Doomsday (at least in East Asia); they were fairly convinced then that they were alone in the region. NDCC shelters quickly became overwhelmed with this influx, prompting Marcos to close down the country's maritime borders to prevent any further movements. Of the 140,000 Chinese refugees, only 30% were officially admitted by 1986. In a radio statement from the high security New Baguio encampments, Marcos ordered all the remaining "illegal aliens" to be expelled by any means, "but as orderly as possible;" rumors circulated in the underground press of refugees being "escorted" at gunpoint.
