    it is well documented that the gas attack at Hallabjah, which he refers to, came in 1988 towards the end of six years of war with Iran, in which chemical weapons were increasingly used with little attention being paid by the international community apart from regular exhortations by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to the two sides to desist. The US helped Iraq in this war with arms and intelligence, including the provision of the chemical weapons used at Hallabjah. As accessories to the crime, therefore, the US is just as culpable as was Saddam. The anti-war movement - representing the vast majority who oppose the Bush/Blair wars -will continue to hold mass protests until the views of that majority prevail.
