Won’t it be wonderful to be back under a Republican administration. How much safer and above table it’ll be. Like bright sunlight as honesty returns to our saddened land!

Since the 1990s the US administrations had accused Baghdad (based on Mossad intelligence reporting) of having stockpiles of chemical weapons which posed great threat to Iraq’s neighbors and rest of the “civilized world” and, thus, must be destroyed. Forget that Iraq’s several neighbors, such as, Israel, Egypt and Syria too had stockpiles of chemical weapons. Israel also have 240-400 nuclear bombs in 1991 and 2003.
On October 14, 2014, the Jew York Times reported that the US occupation forces in Iraq did find some 5,000 outdated chemical weapons, but unfortunately they’re all “Made in USA”.
According to the paper American and US trained Iraqi troops repeatedly encountered, and at times were wounded during 2004-2011 by the chemical weapons that were acquired or produced with western collaboration, and hidden or abandoned after the Iraq-Iran War of 1980s.
Saddam Hussein was a CIA agent who along with the anti-Islam Ba’athists were brought into power in 1963 by the US and Britain to stop anti-Israel Islamists coming into power in Iraq, Egypt and Jordan.
United States, Britain and their Arab allies (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, etc.) provided money, arms and even chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein’s army to destroy Islamic Revolution in Iran before it spread to the rest of the Arab world.
Norm Dixon, an Australian journalist in a June 2004 article claimed that the so-called “Irangate” was a scandal (like ISIS) to discredit the Islamic Revolution in Iran among the Arabs.
The full extent of US complicity in Iraq’s “weapons of mass destruction” programmes became clear in December 2002, when Iraq submitted an 11,800 page report on these programmes to the UN Security Council. The US insisted on examining the report before anyone else, even before the weapons inspectors, and promptly insisted on removing 8,000 pages from it before allowing the non-permanent members of the Security Council to look at it. Iraq apparently leaked the list of American companies whose names appear in the report to a German daily, Die Tageszeitung. Apart from American companies, German firms were heavily implicated.

Tens of thousands of Iranians were killed and wounded by chemical weapons during the 1980-1988 Iraqi imposed war on Iran. Around 100,000 Iranians are still living with the effects, which include long-term respiratory problems, eye and skin problems as well as immune system disorders, psychological disorders, genetic disorders, and probably cancers.
