    Iraq did pursue closer ties with the USSR under the Baathists, but the Islamic revolution in Iran and the 1980 invasion changed that.  Hussein, for his part, seriously miscalculated the reaction to an invasion of Kuwait.  

    Bleh.  What a waste of time and lives this all is.

    What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.
