      And,it was wrong...but that does make anyone else who does it right.  And as point of fact, all the European countries in   WWI used chemical weapons...leading to the Geneva,conventions.  Many have committed genocide moremrecentlymthan the US.

      Just because we did wrong in the past should not be used to argue against doing what is right in the present.
