    The Kurds are not blameless in all this. Read about Mustapha and Masoud Barzani circa 1952 to the present.

    The Marsh Arabs? Saddam thought he was doing the right thing when he drained the swamps and estuaries.. sort of like Israel reclaiming the swamp land in Palestine.

    Whole towns of 10k people were gassed. Women and children dead in the streets.

    It was done in reprisal to an uprising and was ecologically as well as socially devastating. 50k died, more suffered, they were nearly wiped out. It was like dumping the oil on the deep sea corals, plus genocide. Not so much like Israel.

    So you are saying that the British shouldnt have stood up against Hitler? Since he was the biggest kid in the yard?
    Your line of thinking has no ethical or logical standing.
    the Iranians should ahve the freedoms of expression that all humanity deserves. The people of Iran are just as beautiul as the people of America.

    Why compare it to 911?

    That was the justification that many politicians gave to us invading and staying in Iraq.

    Because it was relevant.

    Let's compare it to the Iraq/Iran war, the genocide of the Kurds, his invasion and plans for Kuwait, the genocide of the marsh Arabs or the sale of food-for-oil. Let's compare it to the number of people and families that 'disappeared' under Saddam; oh wait, we can't, because no international witness was allowed.
    Oh, you mean back when the US was Saddam's ally, and Reagan had Iraq removed from the terrorists nations listing, and US companies provided the chemical precursor needed to make the illegal mustard gas?

    They were caught in the crossfire between Iran and Iraq at Halabja in 1988.. while the US was supplying the gas and helping Iraq "contain" Iran.

    Don't exaggerate the numbers........

    Basically Churchill and Sir Aurthur Harris did the same thing to Iraqi Kurds and Arabs in 1920.

    Doesn't make it right.. so who do you want to pay back and why?

    The land drainage was genocide. There was no ecologic or other upside to make it "the right decision".

    so who do you want to pay back and why?
    I don't want 'payback'. I don't believe in such a thing. I want to free Iran.
