Iraq: 10 Years After

Jan 2001 | News Corporation

A major regional crisis started when Iraqi President Saddam Hussein accused Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates of plotting with the U.S. to keep oil prices low. Iraqi revenues had been stunted by low oil prices, which hurt Hussein's efforts to rebuild his country’s economy from the devastating 1980-88 war with Iran. Iraq also accused Kuwait of stealing $2.4 billion in petroleum from the Rumaila oilfield along their disputed border. This is an interactive overview of the Gulf War and changes in Iraq 10 years after.
