It was only iraq which used its chemical weapons on Iran. Iran didn’t have any chemical weapon at that time and therefore did not use any.

When?

OK, I have no problem with the World Court and that the people who are Guilty, have to face - just like Slobodan Milosevic, Saddam Hussein and so on. Yes, these people have killed thousands and thousands of innocent civilians and should be treated accordingly.

BUT, the problem is, that this Court does not treat ALL the world criminals the same. Which basicly means some are Above the Law and probably Won't ever face this Court and charges that they are blamed with. So that makes this court really meaningless and worthless.

Hey, as long as Saddam is behing bars! Damn, makes me feel Really Safe!

I dont thnk saddam did use CW against his people in Halajba

Halabja was not a deserted Kurdish village that somone attacked out of the blue, but rather a battlefield that Iraq and Iran were fighting over, and
which they alternately held in turn

During the war, when iran was pushing slowly into iraq, iraq responded with chemical weapons as a last ditch effort to save itself.
Iran went to the UN accusing the Iraqis of horrific things with these WMD's.

After Iran started getting pushed back wards from iraq, they are then thought to off captured various chemical ordanance of saddams, in which they used in return against iraq considering the UN had turned a blind eye.

AFter realising there wernt any ramifications they started there Shah-era chemical weapons stores, and
developing capacity to make chemical weapons in spite of the moral
stricture, just in case it was lifted, or in case it became a matter of
national survival

1) the lips and extremities of the victims at Halabja were blue;

2) that this is evidence of cyanide because it is something that blocks the flow of oxygen to the blood, whence the blueness

3) Iran used cyanide gas and Iraq didn't


On another point, Saddam may have murdered countless people during his regime... Tortured them in his jails, and dont what not.

But look at situations happening in the world today. Mugabe's regime, the massacare in Sudan, how many people are beint slaughtered and tortured and the world looks away???

When your dictator of a country, its your country,. Things are run your way.
Saddam wouldnt of stayed in power for all those years hadnt the people let him,

Iraq invaded Kuwait because it had been assured by the US gvt they would not intervene.

It seems to me since the iran iraq war, it has been in the US of A's interest to eradicate Iraq.

Supplying Iran and Iraq with weapons, in order to kill as many of each other as possible.
Assuring them they wont take any part in the invasion of kuwait, but then anhiliating the army once it does so.
Then invading 12-3yrs later on the pretext of WMD's, only to find not even a single shred of them.

And there's only really one or two people who have been in the us gvt since the start..

D-Rumsfeild

just one last point, i saw a movie the other day, ' the world according to bush '

Did you know that bush Snr Snr ' current presidents GRANDdaddy' was a banker for the Nazi party? WHILE his son was fighting the Nazi's in WW2?

food for though.!

I am not into history, but wasnt Halabja bombed in 1989? That would mean that it was bombed after the first Persian gulf war was over. Why would Iran bomb Halabja, a city that was its ally during the war after the war was over?

Even if Saddam was discovered to be a saint and that he should be let go, it wouldn't happen. Don't count on that at all. Now if he managed to escape on the other hand. You can count on a few more cities being blown up to find him. I'm sure Bush would enjoy that.

A lot of great replies here. Yes, Saddam did kill many innocents, but so did the US. Saddam broke many laws, but so did we. How can a murderer accuse another of murder?

It's all perception. Like in a court of law. It doesn't matter who is right or wrong. It only matters who can convince the jury.
