Conventional Ali? Yep, no more "Chemical Ali" as this excerpt from ScrappleFace explains:
Ali Hassan al-Majid is now officially known as 'Conventional Ali,' since it is common knowledge that Iraq had no chemical weapons program.

"The thousands of Iraqis and Kurds who we thought were gassed on Al-Majid's orders, must have died from breathing the smoke of conventional weapons or perhaps sand dust," said an unnamed Pentagon spokesman. "But Conventional Ali will still be charged with misdemeanor violations of some environmental regulations about dust control at work sites."

The Pentagon had previously said that 'Conventional Ali' had died in an air strike in April.

Today an unnamed Pentagon spokesman said, "He'll wish he were dead when he gets done serving six-to-nine months in jail for his crimes."

Here's a quote from "Conventional Ali" himself from Human Right Watch:
"I will kill them all with chemical weapons! Who is going to say anything? The international community? Fuck them! the international community, and those who listen to them!

"I will not attack them with chemicals just one day, but I will continue to attack them with chemicals for fifteen days."

(quote via Ox Blog)What? You say the UN, by not enforcing its own resolutions, did not provide de facto support for Saddam and his regime? It seems that given the above the "international community's" unwillingness to do anything actually emboldened them. Useful idiots take note, no thanks to you, he won't be doing any more of this:
