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
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.
Bin Laden did attack us not Iraq
The Gulf War occurred August 2, 1990.The Invasion of Iraq, or Iraq War occurred March 20, 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).
If you're talking about this time around, we went in March 2003.
No. Mexico never joined the coalition to attack Iraq.
The war in Iraq is said to have started because of the terrorist attack on 9/11. There have been many that believe that the attack on the World Trade Center buildings was a US government ploy in order to start a war with Iraq because of the amount of oil in their country.
The question as worded is nonsensical. There is only "one Iraq country", Iraq and it attacked Arabs in 1990. If you are asking "Which Arab country did Iraq attack in 1990?" the answer is Kuwait.
intelligence reports indicated that Iraq was planning a major terrorist attack in the United States
Well mostly people say we went to war with Iraq because we think that they attack us which is the world trade center and the pentagon. But now we are realizing that this is all a lie and the government must be part of this attack. So we went to war with Iraq because we wanted their oil to make money.
Clinton and Obama were the US Presidents in the 1990s and 2000s who did not invade Iraq and/or fight against Saddam Hussein.
No. The US attacked Iraq because they suspected they were stockpiling weapons of Mass Destruction. The US immediately started CIA operations in Afghanistan to locate and elminate Osama Bin Laden and the Talaban after the 9-11 attack.
To protect petroleum supplies and to liberate the occupied country of Kuwait.
Iraq and US. but currently Obama has set a deadline with Iraq for US to move out of Iraq by dec. 2011
Its because Iraq accused Kuwait of stealing petroleum through drilling.
Attack of the Show - 2005 The War in Iraq was released on: USA: 9 August 2006
Iraqis should have launched a sudden attack US bases. But Iraq did not. Iraq should have used more snipers and RPGs.But they insisted on tank force that was easily destroyed in air attack. At least they should have built strong defensive point in Kuwait city like Stalingrad. All of these would not be needed if Saddam kept Kuwaity oil under US control.
Afghanistan and then later Iraq under the reasoning that it was part of the United States war on terror.
