Chemical genocide

This call to sign a petition relating to the after-effects of the Fallujah attack reminds me of a shameful episode in our history.  When the first reports of Saddam's use of nerve agents on a civil population, followed swiftly by some of those victims who had escaped death, reached London, prime minister Thatcher rejected them as Iranian propaganda. Of course, Saddam was then the West's friend in the fight against Muslim extremism.
