    Would he still be running Iraq if he had never invaded Kuwait?

    Bush, like most every president, wanted the history books to claim he won a war.

    Iraq was the victim in the first war because their oil was being stolen.

    Perhaps instead of invading another country, Iraq should have gone to the UN and reqeusted sanctions against Kuwait?

    Since they did not, then Iraq was not a victim - Iraq was an imperialist war monger.

    Nothing like revisionist history. If you ever write a book, I will not buy it. :sleeping_2:

    Even if his warped imaginings happened to be true, Saddam tried to steal a country in return.

    Bad Move.

    It eventually got him killed.

    Uh, no, Kuwait was the first victim because they were invaded by Iraw for their oil.
