    The First Iraq War was a response to Iraq invading, conquering and raping Kuwait and massing on the border to overrun Saudi Arabia. They would then control 45% of the world's oil supply, thus they would control the world. We beat them hard and Hussein sued for peace. He subsequently broke every agreement of the peace treaty and when we threatened to re-invade, he said he would use battlefield nukes on our troops. Turns out he didn't have them but we didn't know that when we invaded.
