Partition IV

Have written about partition here, here and here.

From Paul Mason, Timelines: The Iraq War (2010):

Iraq and Kuwait, 1930s-1991

March 3, 1991

Iraq surrenders to UN coalition forces.

The Kurds 1978-1997

March 1991

Uprisings against Saddam in Iraqi Kurdistan and Shia areas of the south are suppressed by the Iraqi government using artillery and helicopter bombers.

Saddam’s crimes 1982-1991


Between 60,000 and 130,000 southern Shia and 30,000 to 60,000 Kurds are killed by Saddam’s forces after rebellions against him.

Where the mosque dome and minarets are now destroyed

What you do what you do

What they did what they did
