On how the US "allowed" Saddam to take a part of Kuwait.

Excerpts From The Third Presidential Debate of 1992
PEROT: ... Now, let's go back to Saddam Hussein. We gave Ambassador Glaspie written instructions. That's a fact.

Excerpts From Iraqi Document on Meeting with U.S. Envoy - very worthwhile reading... local copy of the whole transcript

APRIL GLASPIE: I thank you, Mr. President, and it is a great pleasure for a diplomat to meet and talk directly with the President. I clearly understand your message. We studied history at school That taught us to say freedom or death. I think you know well that we as a people have our experience with the colonialists. ...
I have a direct instruction from the President to seek better relations with Iraq. ...
HUSSEIN: Kuwait and the U.A.E. were at the front of this policy aimed at lowering Iraq's position and depriving its people of higher economic standards. ...
we have no opinion on the Arab-Arab conflicts, like your border disagreement with Kuwait.
I was in the American Embassy in Kuwait during the late 60's. T
he instruction we had during this period was that we should express no opinion on this issue and that the issue is not associated with America. ... All that we hope is that these issues are solved quickly. ... I simply describe the position of my Government. ...
HUSSEIN: We do not ask people not to be concerned when peace is at issue. ... We want to find a just solution which will give us our rights but not deprive others of their rights. But at the same time, we want the others to know that
our patience is running out regarding their action, ... As a country, we have the right to prosper. We lost so many opportunities,... We are not aggressors but we do not accept aggression.
