Iraq - Dutch businessman supplied the chemicals

Saddam used to make chemical weapons.

After he was granted Iraqi citizenship on personal orders by Saddam, van Anraat fled Iraq after the dictator was toppled and in December 2005 was convicted and sentenced to 15 years in prison after being found guilty of complicity in war crimes.

‘He supplied our institutions ... with rare and banned chemical weapons,’ read the memo dated 1992 which circulated inside the president’s office.

Saddam said on Monday he would take responsibility ‘with honour’ for any attacks on Iran using conventional or chemical weapons during the eight-year war.

Keep this handy next time someone from the anti war crowd blames the US. And if they claim the US armed Saddam, show them this.
