No, it wasn't anything to do with why the first Iraq War started. That was just a hit piece by the Kuwaitis against Iraq. The fact is, the War was on anyway as Iraq had invaded Kuwait.

The baby incubator story was just a side show and had sod all to do with the reasons for the war.

Why would the west want to topple a communist regime that was a thorn in the side of the soviets?


A thorn ? Not so much a thorn...why would west do it ? Why Operation Gladio ? Simple....because they are commies !!!!! No additional reason necessary.




Why would it want to destabalise a country that has nothing, like oil for example, of benefit to the west.


Communism.




It was the power vaccum after Tito died that enabled all the little tinpot wannabe dictators throughout Yugoslavia to take power. The best way of getting support....ethnic conflict.


True. But the west had a motive in it. They certainly helped or if you want...initiated. US congress even passed a resolution to financially aid any country of Yugoslavia...provided they ask for it as an independent state. The funny "little tinpot wannabe dictators" jumped at a chance to get some $$$.

to STUMASON:




life is better now they have peace and stability


there was peace and stability...from 1945 onward right up to the end of the 80's.

I think you might be misinformed as to what was life like in Yugoslavia before 90's. There werent any conflicts...ethnic or otherwise. Not that it was paradise by no means...but it wasn't that far off what we have today...at least for the common folk. The rich can get richer today far more easier in the capitalist system. Little people live day in day out...just as they did back then.


but...this is off topic, and with respect to the OP:..let's finish here.
