A Question to The UK Inquiry about USA/UK War against Iraq?
The UK governments since 1990 shared the USA its major responsibility of wars, inhumane sanctions and the killing of millions of Iraqi civilians and children.
At least one million Iraqi children were killed due to the barbaric inhumane sanction on Iraq from 1990 until now which was mainly supported by the UK and the USA government. Once during that time Malden Albright the foreign secretary of the US been asked if it is worth to kill half a million Iraqi children and she replied (YES) it is!
Despite the UK inquiry is going to cover 2001 until now the events in fact goes back from 1990 and even before. In addition this inquiry should be public not private. However let us go back to the events before 1990 in brief because details will need many books.
In 1979 the USA and the UK supported Saddam Hussein in his war against Iran and gave him the green light to kill his own people who stand against the war and against his crimes. The UK and USA armed SH and casted blind eye on his crimes. The war continued for 8 years and killed millions and destroyed the economy of both countries. Saddam declared victory and exit the war with very strong and well armed forces but damaged economy and dictatorship grip.
Kuwait which was a little town belong to the Iraqi city of Basrah feared this strong army and arranged with the USA and the UK to let Saddam occupied it in return to destroy his army and Iraq as a whole. It was a game resulted in the 1991 war against Iraq. When Saddam called the USA ambassador to Baghdad in 1990 he discussed with her about the problems Kuwait creating for Iraq despite that Iraq led the war that protected them from the regime of Khomeini. The US ambassador told Saddam that this is an internal affair and the USA had no interest in it. She fooled him and he understood that the US allowed him and gave him the green light to reunite that part of Iraq to the main country. In fact the USA pushed Saddam to invade Kuwait so as they will fulfill their plan against Iraq. Saddam of course regret that he should have been taken Kuwait during the war with Iran at the beginning of the war in 1980 by an excuse to protect Basrah as well as Kuwait from the Iranian invasion. At that time no single one including the USA or the UK will be able to say anything about it because Saddam was doing the war against Iran Khomeini on their behalf. If he done it at that time they will all congratulate him. Any way the UK and the USA in 1990 decided to wedge the war against Iraq and they haven’t allowed any chance for diplomatic solution and withdrawal. They gathered more than 30 other countries and did the Third World War against Iraq.
When the III-WW started in 1991 against Iraq the USA and the UK and others used all weapons including weapons of mass destruction and depleted uranium against that country. They destroyed Iraq infrastructures and killed its civilians and humiliated its people and damaged all the civilians’ factories and converted it into a blood bath. The aim of the war was to return Kuwait to the rolling family of Sabah however the destruction exceeded that aim by many time. Some Iraqi POWs were killed and some buried alive by the USA army and its allies in the desert.
Iraq pushed out of Kuwait and the Iraqi people revolted against Saddam and he was close to leave Iraq to Algeria however the USA and the UK saved him and kept him on power again by allowing him to crush the revolution.
The USA and the UK and their allies started another barbaric war against Iraqi civilians which is by their barbaric sanction of preventing food, medicine, repair of the damaged system by their war, and many other aspects of life. The depleted uranium used by George W Bush 1991 war and his allies resulted in increase in cancer and other disease rates in Iraq while they prevent Iraq from importing suitable treatment to treat it. Malnutrition, death from preventable diseases, lack of antibiotics and other medicine, lack of pain killers and surgical equipments, poverty, lack of proper sanitation system damaged by the USA and the UK machines and other similar issues resulted in death of millions of children and Iraqis from that inhumane sanction.
Then came the scandals of the Oil for food deals in which the UN personnel were using this to make money as bribes and deals and they know it is on the price of killing many more Iraqi children. It was a dirty issues and crimes against humanity. The blood of the Iraqi children will never be washed easily from the hands of the criminals for many generations to come until they admit to it.
The big lies of GWB the son and Tony Blare of the UK about the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and for this reason they started the war in 2003 against a country that they crippled and weakened since 1979. The war resulted in ongoing death, terrors, destructions, damage to its social structure, stealing of its wealth, diseases, and occupation by arrogant occupiers witness on them Aboghreb prison crimes and Basrah tortures of the Iraqi detainees by the USA and the UK forces.
Who is responsible for the crimes committed against the Iraqis since 1990 until now in its faces of wars, sanctions, terrorizing its civilians, preventing medicine, corruptions and imposing corrupt leaders on the country now?
There are many other questions we hope that the UK enquiry about what happened in Iraq from 1990 until now (not only from 2001) will give real answers about it. Justice is needed and we hope this will happen by the UK such an enquiry.
