Iraq attack halapja with chemical weapons in 1988?
States Foreign Minister Colin Powell has renewed the Kurds killing case in
Halabja by the chemical weapons while opening a new
memorial with Jalal Al-Talabani 's who arrived in the summer of the past
year 2003 . while we are hearing and
reading how Iraq carries the responsibility of Halabja massacre, and as if that
is from the truisms . And that comes a habit in another truism context is that
America armed Iraq in the bloody Iraqi - Iranian war through eighties .
these truisms come today, specially Halabja, expression of the need of the
occupation forces of pretexts they legislate its aggression on an independent
country . Specifically As in Halabja massacre some the more important pretexts
of the occupation appears :
) the weapons of mass destruction,
) The dictatorship,
) the collective massacres .
therefore, became no escape from the focusing by what happened there the
dependence on the American official sources of itself .
institute of the international peace researches mentions that the importation of
Iraq of the weapons between 1973 and 2002 was distributed statistically as
% from Russia and Soviet Union,
13 % from
12 % from
1 % from
and less than
1 % of Britain .
is no accurate statistics that America armed Iraq in the eighties, and there is
nothing in Iraq’s record like the scandal of
Iran’s gate or the deals of Israeli weapons from the black market or
all the other deals with the knowledge of the American officials witnessed in
front of the congress in year 1982 that Israel transferred American weapons to
Iran and the southern army of Lebanon without that following an achievement
despite its violation of the text of the American law .
another side, a limited report mentions the distribution about Halabja of the
American military intelligence agency, chose parts of it the magazine of Village
Voice in its published issue 1 may 2002 : most of the victims in Halabja death
was caused by the solution of chloride cyanogen, but this chemical factor was
not used a day by Iraq, and the records show that I ran was using it . As for
the mustard gas casualties in the town then it is likely that they were Iraqi
weapons, because there is no record that Iran under any circumstances used it .
in another report about Halabja from a conference that lasted two days the
military attaches in the American embassies in Middle East and analysts soldiers
and politicians from the Central Intelligence Agency CIA And the military
intelligence agency DIA ،
He in its results depended on the field and available reports for the generality
and on the pick-up of the wired messages to the Iraqi and Iranian armies from
the American national security agency NSA ،
Evaluation came that what happened in Halabja as follows : on the assumption
that chloride cyanogen is the official reason and
the basis for the worse chemicals use cases in the military killing of
the Kurds in Halabja, and that Iraq is for the record has not ever been using
these elements, and the Iranians has been recorded using elements from this
kind, we conclude that the Iranians are responsible for this attack . And the
finding of that official report becomes possible on the next site : "http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/ops/war/docs/3203/"
based on another Pentagon report, Washington Post newspaper reported on 3 may
1990 says that Halabja massacre the result of the mutual bombardment came by the
chemical weapons between the Iraqi and Iranian armies with the target of the
control over the town .And we conclude from The different sources in this
context that what happened in Halabja is the start of the Iranian army with the
bombardment of Halabja a chloride with the target of the control over it, and he
is what from the civil Kurdish victims without that he is a premeditation led to
lying the greater department their targeting is the aim, but the Iraqi army
reverted and bombarded it by the mustard gas for its liberation after the
massacre occurred by the Kurdish civilians and therefore the victims of the
Iraqi weapons were a basis from the attacking Iranian forces and Al-Talibani 's
forces allied with it .
Colin Paul accuses Iraq of the
slaughter of the civilians in Halabja, may be he should start first with the
denying the American
anyway, the greater hypocrisy is not the
claim of that Washington cares for the Kurds but the one that made the Turkish
country greater is importing the American weapons in 1994, the same year that
more than million Kurds escaped to Diar Bakr
from the tyranny that the Turkish forces inflicted on the countryside in
the occupied Kurdistan in Turkey .
