On April 28, 1937 an Arab man by the name of Saddam Hussein was born. In 1979 Saddam becomes president and dictator of Iraq. Not only a harsh dictator but Saddam is a murderer. Halabja was a town of 70,000 people located about 8-10 miles from the Iranian border, because its refusal to cooperate in the invasion of Kuwait It became the target of conventional and chemical bomb attacks over three days in March of 1988. At least 5,000 people died immediately as a result of the chemical attack and it is estimated that up to 12,000 people in all died during the course of those three days, 40% being women and children. Most recently American has received information of Nuclear Weapons being built at Iraqi factories.America decided to get involved just about a year last month, with a full military invasion. This mission called “Operation Iraqi Freedom”. Not only did Saddam Hussein provide money to terrorist organizations that helped the attacks on 9/11, but we received word from a source that weapons of mass destruction are being made in secret factories. After Operation Desert Storm Iraq become are responsibility and if Iraq did indeed build nuclear bombs and proceed in a attack it would be our fault for not watching them, so rather than be safe than sorry we invaded Iraq, and plus even if there weren’t any W.O.M.D we still need to remove him from power.
