- “All wars are based on deception!” – Sun Tzu, The Art of War
- The provocations by the western forces are continuing. This is simply the setup for World War 3. Iran has not started a war in centuries. The Iran/Iraq war was started by Saddam Hussein and he was supported by the West. America supplied the weapons of mass destruction, the biological weapons, to Saddam Hussein which he used in the genocide of the Kurds!
How Reagan Armed Saddam with Chemical Weapons!
On August 18, 2002, the New York Times carried a front-page story headlined, “Officers say U.S. aided Iraq despite the use of gas”. Quoting anonymous US “senior military officers”, the NYT “revealed” that in the 1980s, the administration of US President Ronald Reagan covertly provided “critical battle planning assistance at a time when American intelligence knew that Iraqi commanders would employ chemical weapons in waging the decisive battles of the Iran-Iraq war”. …
While the August 18 NYT article added new details about the extent of US military collaboration with Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during Iraq’s 1980-88 war with Iran, it omitted the most outrageous aspect of the scandal: not only did Ronald Reagan’s Washington turn a blind-eye to the Hussein regime’s repeated use of chemical weapons against Iranian soldiers and Iraq’s Kurdish minority, but the US helped Iraq develop its chemical, biological and nuclear weapons programs.
Iran-Iraq War, Arming Iraq: A Chronology of U.S. Involvement By: John King, March 2003.
… This chronology of the United States’ sordid involvement in the arming of Iraq can be summarized in this way: The United States used methods both legal and illegal to help build Saddam’s army into the most powerful army in the Mideast outside of Israel.

The US supplied the materials and technology for these weapons of mass destruction to Iraq at a time when it was know that Saddam was using this technology to kill his Kurdish citizens. The United States supplied intelligence and battle planning information to Iraq when those battle plans included the use of cyanide, mustard gas and nerve agents. The United States blocked UN censure of Iraq’s use of chemical weapons. …
US missiles ‘hit Iranian village’
Two American missiles struck a village in south-west Iran early today. The news was given in a report by the country’s Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA). IRNA had said yesterday that three people were injured when an earlier US missile struck an oil depot in Abadan.
The state-run news agency also said British and American jets had entered Iranian airspace several times. The two rockets hit Manyuhi village near the border with Iraq’s Al-Faw Peninsula, an Iranian military commander told IRNA. He gave no details of casualties or damage. “In the border city of Arvand-Kenar, the invading American and British airplanes violated the airspace of the Islamic Republic of Iran three times,” the commander said.
“In two cases, two rockets… hit the Manyuhi village.” The governor of Abadan told IRNA that three people, including a guard at the oil depot, had been released from hospital after receiving treatment. Iran has strongly condemned the US-led military assault on Iraq.
