Nanach is the rectification of Nevuchadnetzar

The Talmud in Chalek (the tenth chapter of Tractate Sanhedrin) says
that נבוכדנצר was capable of singing to Hashem praises that would make
the Psalms pale in comparison. This is a sign that his soul had very
deep roots, and the deeper one's roots the greater is the depths the
soul must subjugate and conquer for the good, but obviously he was not
successful (if I recall correctly the sefer Nefesh Hachaim by R. Chaim
Volozhin discusses this, or it may be brought up as a question to what
he writes, it is something I discuss in my unpublished commentary to
his work, Simchas Hachaim). What he needed was the ultimate power of
conquering and reversing even the most evil to good – Rabbainu Na Nach
Nachmu Nachman MayUman.
Very often נבוכדנצר is called נבוכדראצר – we can break up this name
to find it's roots - נבוך דראצר – confused of retzar – retzar has the
numerical value 491 which is that of Na Nach Nachmu Nachman MayUman.
נבוכדראצר just couldn't figure out the powerful secret that he so
desperately needed - נ נח נחמ נחמן מאומן!

Nevuchadnetzar had his chance again recently, but truly blew it this time. Saddam Hussein, considered to be N's Gilgul, not only failed to rectify N's evil doing against Bnei Yisroel & the Beis HaMikdosh, but faught against us once again, including the 39 Malkus/scud missles, and even at the rope tied at his neck was giving praise for "Palestine". At least in this lifetime, Nevuchadnetzar/Saddam lived during the era of the revelation of NNNNM,
so now he truly had no excuse this lifetime around.

publishing the manuscript might give na nach some credit in the yeshiva society.
