    KERMANSHAH, IRAN, 30 October 1980: It did not take long after the two countries began hostilities for a rumor to make the rounds that Washington had encouraged Saddam Hussein to make war against Iran. Years later, Saddam would stated that then-president George H.W. Bush had given him the green light to cross into Kuwait. No matter, the United States would never think of baiting the proverbial hook with materiel, and funds to finance a war. If they had, the line of thinking was that the rationale was backing to halt the potential spread of the Islamic Revolution to other nations in the Persian Gulf. And for retribution against Iran for the hostage crisis, credited with bringing down the government of, and projecting weakness, on the part of Jimmy Carter. The rumor did not exactly stem from nowhere, however. Seyyed Abolhassan Banisadr, the first man to serve as president of Iran after the Iranian Revolution of 1979 abolished the monarchy. Banisadr was subsequently impeached and fled Iran, taking up residence in France where he was a co-founder of the National Council of Resistance of Iran. It was from that perch that he accused the United States of inciting Saddam Hussein to go to war. No matter the catalyst, by late October 1980 Iraq was stalled across the entire front. At Khorramshahr, a struggle that took place there from 22 September to 10 November was so intense, the city came to be called Khuninshahr by the Iranians, literally the “City of Blood.” At the time of the battle, Khorramshahr was mainly being defended by the heavily outnumbered Navy Commandos (Takavaran), some units of the 92nd Armoured Division, the Pasdaran, and civilian militia. Khorramshahr would not be re-captured by Iran until Operation Beit ol-Moqaddas, in 1982.
