Chemical weapons against Kurds and Iran.


The U.S. Government and Israel, through the Jewish lobby, do the following:  Removed Saddam from the list of supporters of terror (after he invades Iran) (Document 1);  U.S. openly confirms in (now declassified memos) that Saddam was knowingly getting his chemical weapons from the U.S. (while the U.S. held out condemning or stopping him) (Document 2); and Saddam and the U.S. government  were establishing ‘mutually beneficial ties’ in an effort to steal Iranian resources (Document 3).  Europe also generously provided Saddam with millions in arms and training.
