Who supplied the poison gas to saddam before he gassed the kurds? was it coming from US mostly?

I wonder if the reason why saddam is not going to be tried for the gassing is the main reason, as it will bring countires like the u.s and it's allies into investigation for it's them that supplied saddam to kill the kurds and the Iranians. Did Saddam used US materials to gas the Kurds? or mostly foreign? not sure.

BTW, don't cite Wikipedia please. I don't like to look that up since to me it's not reliable.

    Saddam is dead, who tries dead men?

    To Saddam US supplies were foreign.

    It doesn't matter who supplied it, its who used it, and used it in that manner, and that's all on Saddam.

    And Saddam was hung.

    I think his scientists designed their own. It was a horrible WMD.

    He's dead, he cannot be tried for anything more.
