Abstract: The current issue of Humanitas Newsletter, published by the Humanitas Foundation, focuses on the Kurdish victims of Saddam Hussein. The lead article documents the history of the brutal repression directed against Iraq's Kurdish population by the Saddam Hussein regime. The article points out that the United States and its allies were silent about atrocities against the Kurds, including the use of aerial bombings and chemical weapons against towns and villages. "Now that the United States' oil supply is threatened, there is a different response in Washington to Hussein's actions. The U.S. now compares its former ally to Hitler".
