MAKPA Quote of the Hour


This one is from Middle East Online: a story about the upcoming trial of Ali Hassan al-Majid, Saddam Hussein's cousin, who in 1998 allegedly gassed the Iraq-Kurdish town of Halabja killing some 5,000 people, three-quarters of whom were women or children, as well as other heinous crimes against humanity.
"The trials will take place from next week until mid-January, and the first to be tried will be Chemical Ali," said [Iraqi] Defence [sic] Minister Hazem Shaalan, quoted by his spokesman.
I don't think he'll receive a fair trial, not that it is any of our concern. What if the man's own attorney refers to him as "Chemical Ali"?
