Chem weapons used in Halabja were furnished courtesy of the Reagan Administration which never raised a finger on behalf of the Kurds. Remember 1988? Reagan administration right?Halabja poison gas attack

The Halabja poison gas attack
(Kurdish: کی 05;یا& #1576;ار ان 40; ھە 17;ەب& #1580;ە Kîmyabarana Helebce), also known as Halabja massacre or Bloody Friday, was a genocidal massacre against the Kurdish people that took place on March 16, 1988, during the closing days of the Iran–Iraq War, when chemical weapons were used by the Iraqi government forces in the Kurdish town of Halabja in Southern Kurdistan. The attack came within the scope of the Al-Anfal campaign against the Kurdish people in North Iraq, as well as part of the Iraqi attempt to repel the Iranian Operation Zafar 7.
The attack killed between 3,200 and 5,000 people, and injured around 7,000 to 10,000 more, most of them civilians; thousands more died of complications, diseases, and birth defects in the years after the attack. The incident, which has been officially defined as an act of genocide against the Kurdish people in Iraq, was and still remains the largest chemical weapons attack directed against a civilian-populated area in history.
The liberal/LSM response?
Big frikking deal.
Aside from ready to use Chem weapons the US furnished Saddam with components and chemical how to information. I was the least we could do__Saddam was our ally at the time.
