Impeach that fucking bastard and then try him for WAR CRIMES !!! A FUCKING War - NO, MORE LIKE A FUCKING SLAUGHTER. BLOOD is now on the Stars & Stipes in the Worst way - ALL future displays of this tainted symbol need to reflect THIS. BLOOD ON THE FLAG !!

U.S. lies do not justify this brutality 20.Mar.2003 16:15

The comment here about Saddam is just a reflection of how little critical thinking goes on in America these days and how the increasingly rare exposure of U.S. lies and propaganda fail to make it into the societal consciousness.

Yes, Saddam Hussein is a brutal dictator and yes, Iraq would be better off without him. But this ongoing slander about the killing of his own people, and specifically of the Kurds near the Iranian border, is specious at best and hardly justification for the current U.S. atrocities. It's just the latest "big lie" that the U.S. government hopes will morph into truth if only they repeat it often enough.

In a recent New York Times article, the man who was station chief for the CIA in the region during when this so-called chemical attack occurred, explained that it was never clear that Saddam Hussein had ordered the attack, and that it was, in fact, very likely, Iranian gas which killed the kurds.

The chemical used was of a type widely known to be possessed by the Iranian army at the time, while Saddam's own forces had only a "lesser" chemical weapon similar to WWII-style mustard gas.

Many of the Kurds at the time had taken up arms against Iraq on behalf of the Iranians, owing to decades of repression by Saddam. There was a battle over this small village because it was strategically important as it gave access to key water resources in the region.

Autopsies on the bodies revealed that it was very likely a situation where the Iranians had bombarded the area with their own chem weapons from a distance and the kurdish ground fighters, not realizing, had also rushed in to combat the Iraqi forces and ended up as collatoral damage - and fodder for the U.S. propaganda machine.
