"As a piece of information, Saddam Hussein killed tens of thousands of Kurds during the Anfal Operation in 1988 ..." For YOUR INFO, in 1988 Saddam gassed the Kurds in Halabja and not in Anfal! "and was `Guilty of genocide` against these people during his Trial." Again, he was NOT tried for his crimes in Halabja but for his mini-crime in Anfal where he accused the locals of trying to assasinate him. Why was he tried on a far less important issue? Because the US did not want all their dirty laundry exposed in the open! Read "Did Saddam Gas the Kurds? Or was it Reagan?" at "http://marc.perkel.com/archives/000295.html"
