Oh, come on, guys. Lets try to keep the discussion within the bounds of reality. Iraq under Saddam Hussein started the Iraq-Iran war in 1980 by mounting an invasion of Iran. Disputing this is on a par with disputing the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941.
If you know of an Iraqi source which offers a "different perspective", Patrick, now would be a really good time to tell us about that source.
