saddam wanted to unify all muslim countrys into 1?
    #1152001 - 12/18/02 02:08 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I was told by a teacher today that when saddam's forces invaded kawuit( not sure how to spell that) his goal was to unify all off the middle east into 1 muslim country, and possibly africa and eurpoe as well. this did not sound right to me, i tryed to challenge him but i didnt know enough about it to make a valid argument. perhaps the more educated people here can enlighten me on this subject or direct me where to go to learn more about it.

Saddam invaded Kuwait because the Kuwaitis were slant drilling from Iraq's oil fields.

No wonder today's youth hold the views they do if their teachers are incapable of accurately passing on to them history as recent as a decade ago.

Hussein isn't even Muslim, except in name, and he couldn't possibly care less about the fate of any country not bordering his own.

Three cheers for the Canadian educational system. *sarcasm*

I have heard people speak of a united Islam Nation, but I don't know what exactly is meant by that.

Saddam did try to unify the middle east during the Gulf War, not because he wanted one country but because he wanted many countries to back him up during the war.  I think it's more possible that you misunderstood him/her (your teacher that is) but the Europe thing is odd.  He did try to get some sympathy from Russia and the more liberal European nations but was never looking to make one country of unified people.  I'm surprised a Canadian would actually make a mistake :smirk:

Saddaam invaded Kuwait because they where slant drilling into their oil field?

I think your a little misinformed. If I'm correct Saddaam invaded Kuwait because he believed the land rightfully belonged to the Iraqi people. Atleast that was his official reasoning. Kuwait has some of the most oil rich deposits in the world, They would not need to slant drill (I thought slant drilling was just a simpson thing). The Kuwaiti people are the some of the richest in the world.

He also invaded because when he asked the american ambassador whether there was any problem with an invasion she said "The US has no interest in arab-arab conflicts".

Makes you wonder what the real story was.

Looking around the internet it seems that indeed Kuwait was slant drilling with American equipment for many years before Iraq said enough. Apparently Iraq brought proof to the UN but nothing ever came of it.

I also believe that Iraq felt that Kuwait was historically a part of Iraq.

In reply to:

Yeah it seems that the US was egging on both sides telling Kuwait they would support them and telling Iraq that it would over look any such invasion.

All these ties to oil and the Bush family all about oil just stinks too much for me. I mean hasn't North Korea admitted to a nuclear weapons program.... oh wait they are a poor country with no real natural resources to exploit.
