The Exiled Shalash

Halabja


Today marks the 18th year anniversary of one of the most gruesome chemical attacks in the history of mankind. Today marks the anniversary of the gassing of 5000 Kurds in the hands of Saddam and his gang.

But today Iraqis have no time to sit and reflect, they have no time to take a moment of silence in honor of those who were killed. Today Iraqis are dying in tens, hundreds and thousands only for being Shi'a, only for being Sunnis, just as those Kurds died only for being Kurds. The people of this nation die for the sin of being born Iraqis.

The people of Halabja attacked the monument that was opened after the liberation of Iraq, the man who cut the ribbon at the monument's opening was General Collin Powell. That monument today was attacked by angry protesters.

Everything that can go wrong in Iraq is going wrong.

May the Gods save this nation, may They bring peace to it. Haven't we suffered enough? Haven't enough of us died? When will this stop? When will we have time to mourn our dead and write eulogies for our dead and erect monument in honor of our dead? WHEN? WHEN?

  • I have been reading and have read in the past that it was the Iranians who gased that area?? Any light to be shed on this rumour and any truth in it?? Maybe to bring Iraq where it is now??
    Thank you
