In the fog of war its hard to know atrocity from false flag. The UN
seems impotant as its dominated by a handful of countries that
tend to cancel each other out. I don't know the answer, obviously
we do not want all these unnecessary deaths, in yet another cruel
conflict.....this time Syria.....

The United States helped Saddam Hussein attack Iran with chemical weapons in
the 1980s during the Iran-Iraq war, it has been claimed.Ronald Regan's
administration, who supported the Iraqi dictator topple two decades later by the
Bush government, fed information to Baghdad that helped them launch strikes.

U.S. officials gave Saddam's army details about the whereabouts of Iranian forces
in 1988 knowing that he would deploy chemical weapons, Foreign Policy magazine
reported.

'Support': Secret documents reveal that former President Ronald Reagan's
administration acquiesced in Iraq's use of chemical weaponsIraq used mustard gas
and sarin in early 1988 in four major offensives which helped bring about the end
of the eight-year conflict.During the whole war, up to 20,000 Iranian troops were
killed by mustard gas and nerve agents from Iraq and 100,000 were wounded.
They were able to launch the strikes after being given maps, satellite pictures and
other intelligence by the U.S.The Americans have always said that Iraq did not
reveal that they would launch chemical strikes.


But documents released in the National Archives and interviews with former
serviceman show that the U.S. acquiesced in the use of chemical weapons as they
tried to help Saddam with the war

According to declassified CIA documents, US intelligence officials disclosed the
location of Iranian troops to Iraq knowing that Saddam Hussein would use chemical
weapons against them back in the 1980s. According to the new revelation from
Foreign Policy Magazine, not only did they the US provide the location, but were
aware of the scale of nerve gas attacks. Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern weighs
in on the report and explains how America's intervention changed history.

Exclusive: CIA Files Prove America Helped Saddam as He Gassed Iran
The U.S. knew Hussein was launching some of the worst chemical attacks in
history and still gave him a hand.

BY SHANE HARRIS AND MATTHEW M. AID | AUGUST 26, 2013

The U.S. government may be considering military action in response to chemical
strikes near Damascus. But a generation ago, America's military and intelligence
communities knew about and did nothing to stop a series of nerve gas attacks far
more devastating than anything Syria has seen, Foreign Policy has learned.
In 1988, during the waning days of Iraq's war with Iran, the United States learned
through satellite imagery that Iran was about to gain a major strategic advantage
by exploiting a hole in Iraqi defenses. U.S. intelligence officials conveyed the
location of the Iranian troops to Iraq, fully aware that Hussein's military would
attack with chemical weapons, including sarin, a lethal nerve agent.

The intelligence included imagery and maps about Iranian troop movements, as
well as the locations of Iranian logistics facilities and details about Iranian air
defenses. The Iraqis used mustard gas and sarin prior to four major offensives in
early 1988 that relied on U.S. satellite imagery, maps, and other intelligence. These
attacks helped to tilt the war in Iraq's favor and bring Iran to the negotiating table,
and they ensured that the Reagan administration's long-standing policy of securing
an Iraqi victory would succeed. But they were also the last in a series of chemical
strikes stretching back several years that the Reagan administration knew about
and didn't disclose.

U.S. officials have long denied acquiescing to Iraqi chemical attacks, insisting that
Hussein's government never announced he was going to use the weapons. But
retired Air Force Col. Rick Francona, who was a military attaché in Baghdad during
the 1988 strikes, paints a different picture.

================================================== ==

The reason the allies were so worried about gas attacks in the Gulf wars was
that the US supplied Saddam Hussains regime thru proxies with biological
weapons.....

During the Reagan (Bush) administration, the US provided Iraq with vast quantities
of biological and chemical weapons.

One of the motivations of the original Gulf War was to capture and destroy these
weapons which the US did.
