Iraq's Threat to Regional Stability and Security. (n.d.). Iraq's Threat to Regional Stability and Security. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Prior to Iraq’s 1991 defeat in Kuwait, Saddam Hussein’s regime had built the largest and most capable conventional military force in the Persian Gulf region. He began a war with Iran that ran though the 1980s and resulted in hundreds of thousands of deaths between the two countries. He used chemical weapons against Iranian forces and then turned them against his own Kurdish population in retribution for their sympathy toward Iran during the war. He again used military force against Kuwait in 1990, and as the war ensued, he authorized the firing of Scud missiles toward Saudi Arabia and Israel. Misjudging the Coalition’s determination to eject him from Kuwait, he pushed his military toward destruction.
