      Dear Mr. Bronke,

      This is in response to a forward concerning the hypocrisy of American
      demands that Iraq not posess poison gas weaponry. It is certainly
      true that the Bush administration is being hypocritical in demanding
      that Iraq disarm itself of weapons that the USA has and of weapons
      which the USA was formerly providing Iraq. It is, however, untrue, or
      at best unfounded, to accuse President Hussein of having used poison
      gas on his own people.

      Some Kurdish people were indeed found to have been killed by poison
      gas during the 1980-1988 war, but their deaths were caused by a blood
      agent of the type that Iraq is not believed to have had at the time
      but which the Iranians did. In any case, Kurdistan was a war zone,
      and poison gas was a weapon used by both sides in the war, and it was
      inevitable that there would be collateral damage among civilians.
      Apart from whether it was a just war to begin with, this says nothing
      against either the Iraqis or the Iranians. Reference the following source:
