1 of the 2 does, the other is news reporting from the time. So stop lying JJ.
The Reagan quote states that Iran is the villain for the underlying cause of the conflict in the Gulf not for the attack itself.
Which was a lie.
Iraq attacked Iran.
Iran acted in self defence.
And then Iraq attacks a US vessel, but Iran is the real villain?
So what lala land are you fucking living in you lying cunt?
Your statement about the mines addresses one specific case. It does not address whether the mining Iran did is an act of war as per the international law which is what I stated.
Its a judgement by the International Court of Justice.
From 14 judges.
That's as close to a determination as anyone has ever made.
Well, apart from when the US was found guilty of mining Nicaraguan harbours by the ICJ.
But the US had a little tizzy and refused to recognise the judgement.
Because they are lying hypocrites like you.
So go fuck yourself.
The fact Iraq said no thank you to that study does not prove Iran did not use them as well
The 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq War inflicted enormous
Thuman costs, as each side sustained hundreds of
thousands of casualties. In addition, the eco-
nomic devastation wrought by the war was staggering. The damage to each nation’s infrastructure, the billions of dollars in lost oil revenues, and the squandering of precious currency on the acquisition of massive arms purchases that sustained the eight-year war continue to affect both nations to this day. One of the darker chapters of the war was Iraq’s use of chemical weapons (CW) against Iran and Iran’s decision to employ chemical weapons in response.
The use of CW by both sides created a number of dangerous precedents that continue to resonate
The Department of Defense reported that Iran's chemical weapons program started in 1983 as a response to Iraq's use of chemical weapons. They produced their first chemical agent in 1984, but cumulative production is "a minimum several hundred tons of blister, blood, and choking agents." [Office of the Secretary of Defense, Proliferation: Threat and Response (Washington: Government Printing Office, April 1996), p. 15.] Some sources claimed that the Iranians might have as much as 2,000 tons of chemical agent, possibly including nerve agent. [Andrew Rathmell, ``Chemical weapons in the Middle East--Lessons from Iraq,'' Jane's Intelligence Review, December 1995] The US Defense Department's Annual Report on Military Power of Iran April 2012 makes not mention of these capabilties.
In a declassified report from 1990 (DST-1620S-464-90, dated 15 March 1990), the Defense Intelligence Agency reported that "Iran used chemical weapons late in the war, but never as extensively or successfully as Iraq."
Javed Ali provides no proof for his statement.
I refuse to accept anything that your "war" department asserts, once again, without proof.
Your stinking nation has a history of repeatedly lying about the threats of NBC threats. Lying about threats in general, and being bullies and cunts.
Case closed you little bitch.
