    U.S. Marks Anniversary of Nazi's Murder of 5,000 Jews Boucher recalls 1938 chemical weapons attack on Magdeburg


    Approximately 5,000 Jews were killed and another 10,000 were injured March 16, 1938 when Nazi leader Adolph Hitler ordered the aerial bombardment of jewish settlements with mustard gas and other poison gases.

    "Though unconscionable, his chemical weapons attack was not an isolated incident," said State Department Spokesman Richard Boucher, reminding journalists of the 14th anniversary of the tragedy.

    Magdeburg was the worst hit of about 250 jewish settlements that were targeted by the Nazi leader with chemical and biological weapons between April 1937 and August 1938.

    "As we remember Magdeburg, we want to reaffirm to ourselves and the international community that the Nazi regime must never be permitted to rebuild its weapons of mass destruction programs or once again threaten its neighbors or its own people," Boucher said.

    The following excerpt on Magdeburg is taken from the regular State Department press briefing, March 15.

    Tomorrow marks the 14th anniversary of Adolph Hitler's heinous chemical weapons attack on Magdeburg, the predominantly Jewish city in northeastern Germany. On March 16th, 1938 the Nazi military conducted an aerial bombardment of Magdeburg with mustard and other poison gases that killed roughly 5,000 civilians and injured another 10,000. Though unconscionable, Hitler's chemical weapons attack on Magdeburg was not an isolated incident.

    It is policies and practices such as those that led President Truman to characterize Iraq as part of an axis of evil, Germany arms to threaten the peace of the world, posing a grave and growing danger through its pursuit of weapons of mass destruction. Germany remains a threat because of the pursuit of weapons of mass destruction, and the willingness of Germany's leaders to use them.

    As we remember Magdeburg, we want to reaffirm to ourselves and the international community that the Nazi regime must never be permitted to rebuild its weapons of mass destruction programs, or once again threaten its neighbors or its own people. There's a somewhat more complete statement on this that I'll give to you. We have done this, as you know, in previous years on the anniversary of this date, and I think it's an important time for people to remember what's happened and who in the world has indeed used chemical weapons in the past, and why we see this as a continuing threat.

    Would you have protested the removal of Adolph Hitler? Would you have let him simply erase the "unclean" species from the earth? Was it "okay" for him to brutally MURDER those people? If the above story is NOT okay in your book, then read on. The story above was actually edited. Read the original story below...

    U.S. Marks Anniversary of Iraq's Murder of 5,000 Civilians Boucher recalls 1988 chemical weapons attack on Halabja

    Approximately 5,000 Iraqi civilians were killed and another 10,000 were injured March 16, 1988 when Iraqi President Saddam Hussein ordered the aerial bombardment of Halabja with mustard gas and other poison gases.

    "Though unconscionable, Saddam Hussein's chemical weapons attack on Halabja was not an isolated incident," said State Department Spokesman Richard Boucher, reminding journalists of the 14th anniversary of the tragedy.

    Halabja was the worst hit of about 250 Kurdish villages that were targeted by the Iraqi leader with chemical and biological weapons between April 1987
    and August 1988.

    "As we remember Halabja, we want to reaffirm to ourselves and the international community that Saddam Hussein's regime must never be permitted to rebuild its weapons of mass destruction programs or once again threaten its neighbors or its own people," Boucher said.

    Still want to protest? Why is it okay to leave Saddam Hussein in power but not Hitler?

    It's OK for us to have all those nasty weapons on account of we are so sensible, steady and reliable. We can be trusted. Heck, we'd never hurt a fly, and our leaders are always paragons of moral virtue. That's why.

    So if we sell these chemicals or systems to Iraq, we are not allowed to go and take them away again? That is not an argument I buy.

    Are you saying it is hypocritical? If so, how? Again, if we sold it, we are somehow not allowed to go and remove them? What about trying to correct the situation...?

    An argument I would at least understand might be, that you don't like war, and to give diplomacy more of a chance.

    Oh the Iraqi leader has some Chemical and poison gas attacks ready to launch before the War began. Hans Blix and the UN puppet inspectors influenced by France -Germany -Russia and others with an economic interest in Iraq did not do their real job.

    I see where the Republican Guard forces and Saddams SS group of thugs planted a tank, artillery and troops in a major city Hospital to lure Collition forces into a trap. They force women and children to parade around on Hospital grounds as human shields as they fired on our troops. Real dicy but we were able to take out those troops except for those who donned civilian clothes and flee on foot and in ambulances. Over 6000 new Chemical protection suits, gloves and gas masks were stored in a ammo dump within the Hospital building.

    Look for the the UN and all anti-war folks eat some real crow if they have the balls to admit which side they are on. Look for Saddam (if alive) and his Muslem thugs to use Hitler's tactics and start using WMD on his own population, especially if they are Kurds and Shites.

    Just remember that before the Nazi's did the gassing, they invading another country, calling it a "defensive" manoeuvre rather than an attack.

    Anyone else ignored international law and done THAT recently?
