RE: Halabja

Thanks, Glen, for the posting on the Halabja claims.  You refer to Jean
Pascal Zanders of SIPRI.  He's given talks on claims of Iranian use.  These
can be found on; the first two
items in the "latest additions" section deal with this.

On Rahul's mention of an Iranian presence in Iraq during the 1991 uprising:
"while the intifada was started by
soldiers returning from Kuwait and quickly grew to include large numbers of
Sunnis as well as Shias, there was a point when Iran sent large numbers of
militants from SCIRI and other sources into the south": I have heard it
claimed by a British soldier in the Gulf War that there were Iranian units
in Iraq after the Gulf War.  His impression is that they were scavenging
military equipment.
