Saddam Hussein's Defiance of United Nations Resolutions
Saddam Hussein has repeatedly violated sixteen United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCRs) designed to ensure that Iraq does not pose a threat to international peace and security. In addition to these repeated violations, he has tried, over the past decade, to circumvent UN economic sanctions against Iraq, which are reflected in a number of other resolutions. As noted in the resolutions, Saddam Hussein was required to fulfill many obligations beyond the withdrawal of Iraqi forces from Kuwait. Specifically, Saddam Hussein was required to, among other things: allow international weapons inspectors to oversee the destruction of his weapons of mass destruction; not develop new weapons of mass destruction; destroy all of his ballistic missiles with a range greater than 150 kilometers; stop support for terrorism and prevent terrorist organizations from operating within Iraq; help account for missing Kuwaitis and other individuals; return stolen Kuwaiti property and bear financial liability for damage from the Gulf War; and he was required to end his repression of the Iraqi people. Saddam Hussein has repeatedly violated each of the following resolutions:
UNSCR 678 - November 29, 1990
Iraq must comply fully with UNSCR 660 (regarding Iraq's illegal invasion of Kuwait) "and all subsequent relevant resolutions."
Authorizes UN Member States "to use all necessary means to uphold and implement resolution 660 and all subsequent relevant resolutions and to restore international peace and security in the area."
UNSCR 686 - March 2, 1991
Iraq must release prisoners detained during the Gulf War.
Iraq must return Kuwaiti property seized during the Gulf War.
Iraq must accept liability under international law for damages from its illegal invasion of Kuwait.
Where was all the indignation for the war against Iran and all the people that died from that war? It wasn't from the US or much of Europe.
Saddam was a monster, but a monster that both the Communists and we from the West created and kept in power with weapons, technology and support.

Botulism vaccine was needed or all the cows in Iraq die. Saddam weaponized it and let the cows die. That was the only US government involvment.The Iraqi chemical and biological weapons was only possible with the help of Germany, France and to some extent the US and many other countries including the Netherlands.
You're claiming that no one cared so it doesn't count?Where was all the indignation for the war against Iran and all the people that died from that war? It wasn't from the US or much of Europe.
Yeah, well, we changed policy. No more destabilization, that didn't work. Now we nation build.Saddam was a monster, but a monster that both the Communists and we from the West created and kept in power with weapons, technology and support.
