Yes. Kuwait was coerced into slant drilling into Iraqi oil fields at the request of the US. And other transgressions committed against Iraq that we won't get into right now.

Then when Saddam declared his intention to invade Kuwait. April Glaspie gave Saddam the greenlight.

It was all a setup by the US to justify war onĀ  Iraq and was no more legitimate than the next war against Iraq.
So Saddam was coerced into invading Kuwait?

Yes and it's recorded historical fact. April Glaspie gave Saddam the greenlight to invade Kuwait. She said it was of no concern to the US because it was an Arab/Arab issue.

Of all the people on this board, I though 'you' Craig Sickler would know that.

Did you know that the next war against Iraq was for phony reasons too? Some americans, probably Ruby, still think those WMD's are hiding under W's bed? Or Assad's bed, whatever?

Do you think the US war crimes against Iraq rise to the same level as the war crimes of Adolph? In comparison, some are starting to think Adolph got a bad rap. In comparison that is. Do you think so?

Saying I won't stop you from doing something is not coercing you into doing it.

You're off topic again. Aren't you supposed to be remembering the Alamo or something?

Shouldn't you be answering yourself on that new Syria thread you started?

Doesn't RT have an update for us?
