The UN Report on the 8-year war imposed on Iran

On December 8, 1991 AD, the UN, in a report, declared the Ba’th minority regime of Baghdad as aggressor of the 8-year war imposed on Iran – on the orders of the US. UN Secretary General, Ecuador's Javier Perez de Cuellar emphasized in his report that based on the UN Charter, and international rules and regulations, Saddam should accept responsibility for his unjustified aggression on Iran. On September 22, 1980, the repressive Ba'th minority regime of Baghdad launched unprovoked air and ground attacks on the newly-founded Islamic Republic of Iran. During the invasion, which was fully backed by the Capitalist West and the Socialist Eeast, several Iranian border cities and towns were occupied and innocent women, children, and men were martyred.

Iran's Muslim combatants rallied under the guidance of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (RA), to stage heroic epics of resistance during the holy defence to blunt the Ba'thist aggressors and liberate Iranian territory until the acceptance of UN Security Council Resolution 598 in July 1988.

Saddam, the deposed dictator of Iraq’s defunct Ba’th minority regime

6 solar years ago, on this day in 2006 AD, the deposed dictator of Iraq’s defunct Ba’th minority regime, Saddam, was executed by hanging at the age of 69 for his crimes against humanity, following the death verdict. A person of doubtful paternity, Saddam was born in al-Awja village near the city of Takrit, 140 km north of Baghdad, and as a thug involved in social crimes including murder, joined the Ba’th Party at the age of 20.

After the coup staged by the Ba’thists in 1968 under command of General Ahmad Hassan al-Bakr, he was instated as deputy president. In July 1979, a few months after the triumph of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, the US and Britain removed Bakr and placed Saddam as president, in order to use his savage nature to brutally suppress the Iraqi Muslim people from following the footsteps of Iran to determine the fate of their country.

After massacring thousands of members of Iraq’s Shi’ite Arab majority, including the leading ulema such as Ayatollah Seyyed Baqer as-Sadr, and after expelling tens of thousands of Iraqis, Saddam, at the behest of his masters in the West, invaded the Islamic Republic of Iran to try to topple the government.

He utterly failed and the war dragged on for eight years during which he was supplied with internationally banned chemical weapons by the West for use against both the Iranian and Iraqi peoples. Two years after the end of his 8-year war, Saddam occupied Kuwait, his own former benefactor. This led to an international coalition against him, and following the retreat of Iraqi forces from Kuwait, he was allowed by the US to again massacre Iraqi Shi’ite Muslims by hundreds of thousands, and to desecrate the holy shrines of the Imams of the Prophet’s Household in Karbala and Najaf.

Finally, in 2003 when his own godfathers, the American and the British, launched an attack to remove him, he fled and hid himself, until he was caught and jailed. The bloodthirsty Saddam was responsible for the death of several million people, including Iraqis and Iranians.
