Chicago Tribune | Iraq admits for 1st time it started war with Iran: “In a joint statement at the end of a three-day visit by the Iranian foreign minister, Kamal Kharrazi, the new Shiite-led Iraqi government said that Saddam Hussein, the overthrown Iraqi leader, and other officials in his government must be put on trial for committing ‘military aggression against the people of Iraq, Iran and Kuwait,’ as well as crimes against humanity and war crimes.

It was an effort to bring to a close the bitter legacy of the war in which nearly a million people were estimated to have died and tens of thousands more were displaced as refugees.

Hussein, others blamed”
