Bush Administration Policy Before - IRAQ INVADES KUWAIT

Kuwait Stealing Iraqi Oil

In 1990 Iraq accused Kuwait of stealing Iraq's oil through horizontal drilling. Iraq's Oil Ministry officials claimed that Kuwait was stealing 300,000 barrels of oil per day through the practice of underground horizontal drilling into Iraq's oil fields from Kuwait. That much oil would be worth $3 billion over a year.
Pushed in part by the possibility of conflict in the Gulf, oil prices soared to a new 10-year-high before retreating. In addition to the oil theft charges, Al-Thawra editor-in-chief Sami Mehdi accused Kuwait of allowing the United States to conduct military exercises close to Iraqi borders and providing refuge and financial help to Baghdad opponents. Slant hole or Directional Horizontal drilling goes back to the early days of oil fields. There were lawsuits concerning that in the 1920's in the East Texas fields.

On July 25, 1990, just 8 days before the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, the US Ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie - in response to a complaint from Saddam about Kuwaiti actions against Iraq - told him:
"we have no opinion on Arab-Arab conflicts, like your border disagreement with Kuwait. Secretary of State James Baker has directed me to emphasize the instruction, first given to Iraq in the 1960's, that the Kuwait issue is not associated with America." (Saddam smiles)

GLASPIE: I have a direct instruction from the President to seek better relations with Iraq.

HUSSEIN: But how? We too have this desire. But matters are running contrary to this desire.

HUSSEIN: The United States wants to secure the flow of oil. This understandable and known. But it must not deploy methods which the United States says it disapproves of -- flexing muscles and pressure.

We do not want too high prices for oil. And I remind you that in 1974 I gave Tariq Aziz the idea for an article he wrote which criticized the policy of keeping oil prices high.

Iraq came out of the war with Iran burdened with $40 billion debts

We began to face the policy of the drop in the price of oil.

You know that Iran agreed to the cease-fire not because the United States had bombed one of the oil platforms after the liberation of the Fao. Our suspicions increased after we liberated the Fao peninsula.

It was clear to us that certain parties in the United States - and I don't say the President himself - but certain parties who had links with the intelligence community and with the State Department -- and I don't say the Secretary of State himself.  I say that these parties did not like the fact that we liberated our land.

Some parties began to prepare studies entitles: "Who will succeed Saddam Hussein?" They began to contact gulf states to make them fear Iraq, to persuade them not to give Iraq economic aid. And we have evidence of these activities.
Excerpts From Iraqi Document on Meeting with U.S. Envoy

In April 1990, less than four months before the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, Saddam Hussein offered Bush I a deal to destroy his biological and chemical WMD. Bush I agreed.

On August 2, 1990, Saddam's troops invade and occupy Kuwait. Then the U.S. begins it's plans to oust Saddam.

The United Nations redrew the border after the 1991 Gulf war that liberated Kuwait from a seven-month Iraqi occupation. It placed 11 oil wells, some farms and an old naval base that used to be in Iraq on the Kuwaiti side
