Goal for us invasion into Iraq?

The United States didn't want to invade Iraq for their oil. (that was the earlier answer) The reason why the United States interfered was this: Kuwait and Iraq share oil fields, and every so often, each country is allowed to take a certain amount of oil from the fields. Then, Saddam Hussein decided that he wanted more than his fair share of oil. He wanted all of it. So he blamed Kuwait for taking more oil than allowed, to start a conflict that he might win. The United States thought that this wasn't a good idea, and they decided to invade Iraq to help Kuwait. (the answer to the question) The United States fought on Kuwait's side until Iraq and Saddam Hussein realized that they couldn't win. The Saddam Hussein did something so incredibly stupid. He burned all of the oil! Hussein was acting like a big baby, saying "If I can't have it, no one can!" The United States still won, but the disappointing part was that Hussein remained in power. When the troops returned, the American citizens provided overwhelming support for them. I hope you meant the first invasion, and I !!
