This map provides a general look at Kuwait’s gas and oil infrastructure.
Easy to see why Saddam Hussein wanted Kuwait.
Was he mislead to believe he could get away with it?
Historical claim was right, but timing and tactics sucked. The idiot instead of losing to Iran should have divided Kuwait’s oil and gas with Iran, like Qatar is doing. It was dumb strategic thinking.
the americans convinced Saddam that they would support him, he was lead mistakenly on purpose, Saddam was a total imbecile , his country needed to compensate for their Iran-Iraq war economic losses.
Trump boxed himself in. Iran will never give up his missiles like Saddam did.
Shithole puppet Kuwait is a historical province of Iraq and the devious Brits siphoned it off for OIL. The idiot Saddam was right on this one.
