Setting a good example

The Dutch have announced that they will prosecute one of their citizens for assisting Saddam Hussein in genocide. The unnamed Dutchman supplied base materials used to make chemical weapons with full knowledge of their intended use; the weapons manufactured were used in the 1988 Halabja raid in which several thousand Kurdish civilians were murdered by the Iraqi regime.

This sets an excelent example, and I hope that other countries follow it.
