Let's do some more math on Saddam's elimination of humans.

750,000 deaths from his imposed war on Iran. Mustard gas was used there as well.

Kuwait, 1000 dead, still missing POW's, tortures, 750,000 refugees. The torching of the oil fields caused billions in damages, not to mention the dangerous pollution which lasted several months.

The Ma'dan or Marsh Arabs, who as late as 1991 consisted of 250,000 people, they now have only 40,000 left in their homeland. They were Shi'ite. They were murdered, tortured, or just 'disappeared.'

The Kurds in the Anfal campaign: 182,000. Genocide is the appropriate term.

If someone said there were no WMD's the point I would make was---didn't he do enough damage even without his mustard gas? For those not victims of Saddam perhaps they find some chemically induced empathy for the genocide and crimes against humanity this one evil man created.

A victim.
