US Supplied Chemical Weapons To Saddam Hussein

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 18, 2014

The New York Times recently had an article talking about how many coalition soldiers had been seriously hurt after discovering buried caches of old chemical weapons in 2003.  The chemical weapons had been used against Iran by Iraq.  The US government put a lid on these casualties.

Who supplied these chemical weapons?  US, UK, Germany, France and Holland.  The usual US sock-puppets.

I can recall, around this time, Rush Limbaugh screaming with delight after being told by Rick Santorum that chemical weapons had been found.  One of these old chemical dumps was what Santorum was talking about.  I knew at the time where these weapons came.  I am betting Limbaugh and Santorum did too.

This article by Eric Margolis adds more detail to this story.  Including how the UK sent scientists over to Iraq to help develop Saddam’s chemical stockpile.

The NYT article admits European countries and some US companies were involved.  They don’t go so far as to explain the major sponsor for this was the Reagan administration.

The NYT was all for Hussein’s war against Iran.  They got what they wanted.

All the news that fits.

Be seeing you
