Kurdish Mass Grave Discovered in Iraq

The Iraqi Human Rights Ministry announced that a mass grave has been discovered in southern Najaf, containing the bodies of 3,000 Kurds murdered by the Saddam Hussein regime. It should be noted that about 100,000 Kurds were murdered by this regime, and that, even six years after its fall, the bodies of thousands of murdered civilians remain undiscovered. In Najaf alone, 48 mass graves have been found.

No way... Saddam was a harmless and even friendly and helpful to all people. We were SOOO wrong to go in and get him out of office.

Those Kurds were probably sick and dying anyway - and this act of mass burial was an act of kindness to protect the rest of the population from some unidentified disease (that the rest of us know as “being opposed to Saddam”).
