Saddam Accused of Genocide

It is welcome news that Saddam is being tried for the crime of Genocide. Of course, this genocide only involved 5,000 people. I guess genocide just ain't what it used to be.

And the incident occurred during the 1980's, prior to our first military action in Iraq. We didn't feel it necessary to have a war crimes trial then, but now, ten years later, it has become imperative.

Doesn't make much sense, does it?

The new case involves Saddam's role in Operation Anfal, a three-phase move against Kurds in northern Iraq during the war with Iran in the late 1980s. Anfal included the March 16 gas attack on the village of Halabja in which 5,000 people, including women and children, died.

And if 5000 people are genocide then what can we say about a war where a minimum of 900 Iraqi's died just this month?
