Кстати о курдах и газах

Winston Churchill was particularly keen on chemical weapons, suggesting they be used "against recalcitrant Arabs as an experiment". He dismissed objections as "unreasonable". "I do not understand this squeamishness about the use of gas. I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes." (The tribes were the Kurds of Iraq and the Afghans.)

Дело было в 20-е годы, во время антибританских восстаний в будущем Ираке. И горчичным газом их травили, и обычными бомбами бомбили от всей души.
