Response to If it bothered you so much?
D' posted that Saddam had been thrashed for invading Kuwait. No he wasn't. Not a damn thing happened to Saddam in 1991. I'm not aware of any of the American's on this board ever posting that they were happy with the way Gulf I ended. I've posted before that it was to America's shame that we encouraged the Shiites to revolt and abandoned them.
We've hammered this over and over, smike. The answer to why we went into Iraq is d)all the above, and it always has been. Bush approached the SC with the one argument that would get them to act, and he was successful. The US can't argue regime change at the UN because the Charter forbids it, but you can argue enforcement of existing sanctions.
