    Yes the Kurds. They are under attack at this moment by ISIL who are even more barbaric than Saddam. There would be no ISIL if we just kept him bottled up like Clinton was doing. It is obvious now that Saddam was a stabilizing force in Iraq and the region. He would be LHAO if he was still around.

    ISIS has killed 200k Kurds via chemical weapons genocide?

    And let's not forget, Kurdistan is now a semi-autonomous region of Iraq. I'm pretty sure the Kurds are happy about that.

    Some people give credit to ISIS more than it deserves.

    Where do you get 200K? Is that what "curveball" told us? 5000 is more like it. Both Iraq and Iran used gas during their war the Kurds were likely just collateral damage.
    Did Saddam Hussein Gas His Own People?

    The Kurds are fighting for their very existence now, Saddam was never so bold.

    But ISIS really need to be wiped.

    Could you explain why ISIS is so different?

    Is there a direct threat to the United States? If not, and In suggest a link would be damned thin, then what even gives the US the right to go in. In Iraq V 1.0 the US had the backing and encouragement of most of the world, including Arab nations. In Iraq V2.0 you had none and the very reason for going in was a lie. Now, in Iraq V3.0 you have even less, not a hint of weapons of mass destruction and no clear and present danger to the United States of America.

    I don't recall the international community ever asking that the US be the world's policeman from every "Domino Theory" police action to young girls being kidnapped or what women wear in Afghanistan. The reasons for US military intervention become less clear every day, the outcomes usually an arbitrary pull out followed by revolution.

    It's time to hang 'em up.

    Denying the genocide against the Kurds. Claiming only 5k died.

    Where is your source for 200K? The Kurds where allied to Iran who was at war with Iraq at the time of these gas attacks. I bet you don't even know where that gas he used came from either.

    According to the HRW during the Anfal campaign, the Iraqi government:

    Massacred 50,000 to 100,000 non-combatant civilians including women and children;[16]

    Destroyed about 4,000 villages (out of 4,655) in Iraqi Kurdistan.

    Between April 1987 and August 1988, 250 towns and villages were exposed to chemical weapons;[17]

    Destroyed 1,754 schools, 270 hospitals, 2,450 mosques, 27 churches;[18]

    Wiped out around 90% of Kurdish villages in targeted areas.[19]

    Made 2,000 Assyrians, along with Kurds and others, victims of gas campaigns [20]
    Al-Anfal Campaign - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And that's not all he did to the Kurds.


    I'm not surprised you followed up an "informationclearinghouse" article with a pic. Real strong evidence there.
