Genocide or Practice? Iraq's Chemical Attacks on the Kurds
New Yorker article on the horrific chemical attacks on Iraqi Kurds carried out by Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. This is alarming and disturbing stuff. The Iraqis have clearly experimented with their chemical (and possibly biological) weapons on the Kurds. In part Iraq may be working on exterminating the Kurds. But they are also honing their weaponry for wars with other nations.
