Iranian court orders US to pay $245 million to victims of chemical weapons during Iran-Iraq War

The US backed Saddam Hussein’s war on Iran during the 1980s

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – An Iranian court demanded the US administration to pay $245 million to the victims of chemical attacks carried out by Saddam Hussein’s forces during the Iran-Iraqi war of 1980-1988, Iran’s Judiciary spokesman Gholam Hossein Mohseni Eje’i said Sunday.

“A number of people who have been harmed during the chemical bombing have filed lawsuits and a court has issued decrees for 18 of them who have been harmed or died and estimated their ransom,” Mohseni Eje’i was quoted as saying by the Fars news agency.

In September 1980, Hussein started the invasion of Iran. The devastating war that followed only ended in 1988. An estimated 1.5 million people died in the conflict.

During the war Washington supported Iraq with monetary assistance, weaponry, intelligence, technology and also provided materials found by UN experts in the fragments of chemical weapons used by the Iraqi army in Iran.

The United States committed major war crimes by supplying Iraq with chemlical and biological weapons during the Iraq-Iran war

These banned weapons of mass destrujctyion were used by Saddam Hussein against the Iranians…

The United States was thus responsible for the death and maining of hundreds of thousands of Iranians…

The United States is worse than a terrorist state – THE US IS A MAJOR AND REPEATED WAR CRIMINAL and should pay Iran BILLIONS IN WAR REPARATIONS FOR ITS OBSCENE ILLEGAL WAR CRIMES and CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY….

And then the US provided the chemical weapons that Saddam used on the Kurds .
Hard to fathom the Kurds having any thing to do with America .

Attacking the Kurds riled up Israel….and AIPAC tightened the grip on US balls. Plus, Saddam could implicate the US AND Israel in helping CW crimes. Reagan papers explain how we helped him and advised Saddam to co-mingle with conventional weapons, then they took control of the media to keep it out of the news.

At that time and the years another known person was running around in Iraq to promote this war and CWs to Saddam: Mrs. Hillary R. Clinton.

Absolutely accurate assessment of the Useless State of Amnesia.
The most evil, degenerate nation on the earth, and, rest assured, her end is coming far sooner than most American citizens are willing to accept.

That is a good move. Not because I think they’ll get the money,I don’t. But because of the “symbolism” of it. It shows that the US isn’t the only country able to use court judgments to attack their enemies. For years now the US has used their internal US court system to claim they could use that to interfere in foreign countries. The Iranians are showing them that they aren’t the only ones to be able to do that.

You have it spot on , “the symbolism” of it allows its significance to be introduced into the media , and consciousness , world wide . It is also repeatable by different groups , and nations , BRICS , etc .

They don’t have to collect it – just demand it’s paid before any American business does any business in Iran. … The Iranians should extend this to Britain.

Amazia is financially destitute, in trillions of dollars debt, for all her wars against any nation who has whatever Amazia wants, and is prepared to kill for. Amazia is the Sheriff of these psychotic tyrants, used to declare war on any who dare hold up the progress of those implementing the new world order, impede their global dictatorship. Unfortunately, those running the Middle Eastern governments are just as greed motivated, power crazed as the Amazians, English, etc., for nationalities, to these globalists, are irrelevant, we, the citizens, are just numbers in the machine. Those who have usurped control over our… Read more »

The British provided the chemical weapons and the Americans provided the targeting co-ordinates.

All the perverse, crazed leaders of Amazing-less will do is write Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, whoever, a cheque, which is worthless, but shifts responsibility for the funding of any re-building, compensation straight back to the nation to whom the cheque is written. For, assuredly, as with all bank transfers, there is no actual shifting of GOLD! The GOLD always stays in the hands of the bankers, is loaned, through promissory notes, to the respective governments, who then have to issue the money themselves, which, in the final analysis, means all is paid for by the citizens, the workers of said nation,… Read more »

There is a saying…no matter which way you turn, your fanny is always in the rear – i.e. you can’t win. Oh, yes we could if we really got together and stopped all that bickering and wasting time. I am sure you have read ‘Confessions of an Economic Hit Man’…which gives a good insight as to how Washington et all operate.

And yet we are led to believe, by those who control the media, education systems, the churches, etc., that we are smarter than the ape? Money is a fantasy, an illusion, which has no intrinsic value, and could, this year, reach it’s use by date, to be replaced by the card. As for your fanny always being behind you, as a bloke I don’t have that issue, but, rest assured, none of the simple people can win, because we are too scared of taking responsibility for our own life. We have squandered our freedom, passed the buck, allowed power crazed… Read more »

We are too scared because we have been brainwashed to believe, that there is nothing one can do about anything, anyhow. We are being preached to remain passive and non violent while ‘they’ are armed to the teeth to fight us. I don’t buy this – I believe in “an eye for an eye” and we must not wait any longer.

Fear is the devil’s tool! We have been intellectually deadened through the medications in our food, the coke, Mc.Poisons, artificial colored, preservitized, nutrition-less foods, violence based brain washing through the perennial Kill-em- All Westerns and war movies, from Follywood, and Amazia’s citizens have, generally, lost their back bone. In fact it is the western nations, all, who are now mindless, spineless, moral-less scum bags, grovelling at the feet of all we fear; self imposed terror, too scared to fight the real enemy, the one within. There is not time for another revolution, and no one would come anyway, if one… Read more »

When I said ‘they are armed to the teeth’, I most certainly did not refer to Muslims or such. Take a good look at how today’s police forces are ‘dressed’…armed to the teeth. These are the ‘they’ I am talking about. And ‘they’ will use their weapons against us any time, any place, any day.

Yes, what you are declaring here is one hundred percent correct, and that is a rather scary situation, where the police are now a military branch, armed with the latest weapons of mass destruction, to be used against the citizens of Amazia, R’stralia, Well Bitten, in their Forth Reich! I do include the vatican military; fanatic moslems who have been intentionally shipped across the world; invading many nations, Holland, Germany, France, etc., forming an internal army which will be used by the vatican to slaughter all who will not become members of the New World Church, which will be controlled… Read more »

I’ll keep speaking up until I am six feet under. People might not always agree with my point of view – it is their prerogative, but I most certainly will continue to call it as I see it. I am still very capable of thinking for myself and this is what rubs so many the wrong way. Too bad. I totally mistrust the so-called ‘experts’, who – for the most part, seem intent on leading us down the wrong path. Always wonder who pays them.

May God bless you for your integrity, your stance for sanity, and one is with you in our fight against the morons, demons, psychopaths and ‘religious’ lunatics who are intent on global dictatorship. Amazia is the gun of the beast; Cain was of his father, the devil, and there is no hope of reversing this oncoming storm, because the bulk of the population have no idea what is being done to them, by those they trusting elected. One suggests, behind all the chaos, we find the ‘church’, the mother of harlots, as it is the fortress of evil fighting against… Read more »

Absolutely, ‘religion’, from Latin, ‘religio’, means a covering. A covering can provide protection from threats, but, it also can be a means to hide people from Truth, blind them to Light, allowing them to shift responsibility for their personal walk by getting artificial, money seeking intercessors, betwixt themselves and Truth, to supposedly guide them, Spiritually, into Heaven. Heaven is within, and each of us have to give account for how we conduct ourselves whilst here, in this life. Religion is, without doubt, the root of all evil, as it has been perverted into big business, with many intercessors. Satan wants… Read more »
