Default Chemical Ali

Боевой клич брата Саддама (по сводкам CNN), который руководит армией южного фронта Ирака. Интересно, откуда у него такой nickname?

Ali Hasan al-Majid: A key member of the clan is Saddam Hussein's cousin General Ali Hasan al-Majid.


Ali Hasan al-Majid is a key Saddam ally and former 'governor' of Kuwait
He is known by the Kurds as "Chemical Ali" because he was in charge of the Iraqi forces which launched a chemical weapons attack on the Kurdish town of Halabja in 1988.

He was initially "Governor" of Kuwait after the 1990 invasion and is believed to have taken part in the repression of the uprisings by the Kurds and the Shias after the Gulf War.

He is a member of the key Revolution Command Council and a dependable ally of the Iraqi leader, unlike a number of other of Saddam's relatives who have, fatally for some of them, fallen out of favour at different times.

Die Westfront wird General Misban Chudur Ghadi übernehmen, für den südlichen Irak zeichnet Saddams Cousin Ali Hassan al-Madschid verantwortlich. Hassan, Beiname "Chemical Ali", ist mit dem Terrain rund um die Hafenstadt Basra bestens vertraut: Im Frühjahr 1991 leitete er dort die Niederschlagung der Schiiten-Aufstände nach dem Golfkrieg. Davor war er als Exekutor der Giftgas-Angriffe gegen die Kurden im Nordirak zu notorischer Berühmtheit gelangt. Nach der Invasion im August 1990 war er vorübergehend Gouverneur von Kuweit, der gewaltsam einverleibten "19. Provinz" des Irak.

Получается, что это не его "боевой клич" или позывные, а прозвище данное ему курдами.
