OF THE "IRAQ COMMITTEES"
- SEPTEMBER 15, 2003 -
PRESIDENT SADDAM HUSSEIN
NEVER GASED THE KURDS IN HALABJA !
in visit in Iraq, evoked the chemical attack of Halabja, on
the occasion of the inauguration of a "Memorial" by
the Yankee occupation forces and their Kurdish collaborators.
And all over again the great organ of the Yankee propaganda
as much than in this exemplary case, media lies of the western
press have been so
in Halaja, war crime shamefully exploited by the western
imperialists and their Kurdish feudal mercenaries, it is the
Iranian army that gased the Kurdish village! And as part of a
military operation, Halaja being then on the front line! It is
not therefore about “reprisals”
against the civil populations. And everybody knows it.
THE TRUTH ON HALABJA IS WELL KNOWN :
IT IS ABOUT AN IRANIAN WAR CRIME !
massacre of Halabja by chemical
weapons goes back to
March 1988, that is to say at the end of the Iran-Iraq war, a
time when Americans, with at their head the republican
Reagan, were engaged in full "Irangate". That means
they helped and armed, in company of their Israeli accomplices,
the Iranian Shiite fundamentalists.
truth on Halaja is indeed well known since the beginning of
the 80’s. And the press to orders of the Pentagon lies
what was written about this topic by the "RESEAU
VOLTAIRE" : "March 16, 1988, in full Iran-Iraq war,
5 000 Kurds of the Halabja village, situated in the Iraqi
Kurdistan, are killed by gases. But the only information of
which we are sure is that a battle between Iran and Iraq took
place in the zone of Halabja, that the two camps used the
forbidden fight gases and that
the Kurdish civilians, taken between two fires, have
been killed by these gases. In March 1988, the massacre of
Halabja had not raised protest of the international community.
At the time, it was admitted that civilians had been killed
"collaterally" following a mistake of handling of
the fight gases. Two years later, when the Iraq-Iran war took
end and that Westerners stopped supporting Saddam Hussein, the
massacre of Halabja was assigned to Iraqis".
classified report of the "ARMY WAR COLLEGE" (USA)
demonstrated, in 1990, that this ascription was little
believable. The "WASHINGTON POST" of May 4, 1990
summarized it in these terms : “The Iranian affirmation of
March 20  according to which most victims of Halabja
have been poisoned by cyanide
has been considered like a key element [...]. We know that
Iraq doesn't use cyanide gas. We have a very good knowledge of
chemical agents that Iraqis
produce and use, and we know what
each one does not do”.
Stephen C. Pelletiere, political analyst for Iraq to the CIA
during the Iran-Iraq war, then professor
to the "Army War College" who participated in
the writing of the report, confirmed the conclusion of it. He
recalled in the "NEW YORK TIMES" that "the
massacre of Halabja was a war crime, committed by the Iranian
army, and not a crime against
humanity committed by the Iraqi army. And, that on no
account, it was about
the deliberate murder of civil
THE IRAQI ARMY NEVER USED GAS
DURING THE BATTLE OF HALABJA
his book “IRAK, LA GUERRE PERMANENTE - ENTRETIENS AVEC TAREK
AZIZ”, the journalist Patrick DENAUD poses the following
question to the Iraqi vice-president :
you use the deadly gases against the Kurdish villages, notably
in Halabja, in March 1988 ?"
“First of all,
answers Tarek Aziz, gas has not been used against civilians. In documents
filmed in Halabja, the number of the civil cadavers doesn't
pass fingers of the hand. All it for the good and simple
reason that the village was on the front against Iranians, and
that civilians had evacuated it. The village was emptied of
its inhabitants, for a long time. Iranians occupied it, with
the help of Jalal Talabani [chief of the Patriotic union of
Kurdistan]. Halabja has been
bombarded by the classic bombs, as a military site, not as a
village. Those killed by Iraqis perished in the classic
bombardments, no by gas”.
LIES AND KURDISH HYPOCRISY
choice of Powell to go to Halabja doesn't have anything
innocent, the United States having often mentioned this
massacre like a “proof” that Iraq had equiped itself of
massive destruction weapons. The question of these weapons has
been put forward to justify the invasion of Iraq last March
but, since then, no biologic, nuclear or chemical weapon, even
no proof of a manufacture program, has
at the ceremony at the memorial, Djalal Talabani, nicknamed
“the king of mercenaries”, chief of the “Patriotic Union
of Kurdistan” (PUK), whose troops are trained by Israel, had
some laudatory words for the present policy of Americans :
“I am proud that after so many solitude years in our fight,
we have you as friends”, he said to Powell.
yet has an important responsibility part in the Iranian war
crime of Halabja, since his troops of the PUK fought to the
sides of the islamic “Revolution Guards”, who used the
chemical weapon in the battle for the control of the city.
and Massoud Barzani, chief of the “Kurdish Democratic Party”
(KDP), who killed each other during three decades, to the
service of all the rival foreign imperialisms, are a part of
the five Kurdish representatives of the Iraqi government
Council, the puppet pro-American government, the Quislings of
Baghdad, that counts 25 members, installed in July by the
Yankee Gauleiter Bremer.
To situate Barzani,
let's recall that in August 1996 he had called upon Saddam
Hussein - the North of Iraq being detached from the authority
of Baghdad since 1991 and being placed by Washington in a
“zone of exclusion” – “to re-establish the order in
Erbil and to prevent Talabani, supported by Washington… and
Iran, to control all the north of Iraq” !
the truth is revolutionary, affirmed Lenin. Halabja recalls us
the exactness of our fight for the Peoples’ Cause
and our support to the Iraqi Resistance.
the Iraqi ba'athist Resistance !
Live free Iraq !
For the Peoples’ Cause, in Iraq, as in Europe : Yankee Go
of the Iraq Committees.
