When Saddam invaded Kuwait, much of the international community determined that it was a destabilizing action and that his aggression, coupled with his attacks of other neighbors warranted military action to force him to stop his campaign to eventually take over the entire region. After he was pushed back, the U.N. decreed that he was not to be able to sell oil except to provide humanitarian aid to his citizens. Not only did the U.N. fail to enforce that declaration, some members of the U.N. actually made secret deals with Saddam, allowing him to continue to amass a fortune and continue weapons research. Saddam's actions resulted in the condemnation of the world community. Almost all voting members of the U.N. were in favor of military action against Saddam, except for those who were complicit in the secret deals, such as France, Germany and Russia. It should have been no surprise that the nations who were profiting from the secret deals would vote against military action to stop Saddam, yet many people cling to their naive beliefs that the U.S. was wrong to stop one of the men who were funding much of the terror campaigns against Israel and the West.
they invaded Iraq in 2003.
Because we started the war.
we just sarted to bomb the mess out of them
Bin Laden did attack us not Iraq
we did not attack iraq in the gulf war it was the russians who did that's why we got attacked because the iraqies thought we attacked them.
The Gulf War occurred August 2, 1990.The Invasion of Iraq, or Iraq War occurred March 20, 2003.
If you're talking about this time around, we went in March 2003.
Iran & Iraq were the primary combatants; although the US did shoot down one Iranian airliner and Iraq did attack a US warship killing about 30 US Sailors.
Iraq was attacked in 2003, during the initial phase of Operation Iraq Freedom, to remove Saddam from power. Since his removal, Iraq is no longer under attack from the US. The US is attempting to RESTORE law, order, and stability to the region. The US is at war with no "nation." Only criminals (Global War on Terrorism).
No. Mexico never joined the coalition to attack Iraq.
