I'm still alittle amiss as to how "we have no opinion, one way or the other....(ad-lib)" constitutes a "green light"....hmmm.

Loved the movie, but it looked from anti-U.S. rather than neutral view.
I doubt if the facts involving Kuwait can be trusted.

I'm not sure I believe this completely. I can't seem to find anything except conspiracy sources that have the Saddam-Glaspie meeting documented in support of the "no opinion" version. If this is indeed true, I'd love to see it from a credible source. Got one? I don't doubt it, but that doesn't mean I'm convinced.
Are you saying that the powers that be, those not seen, are still not there?

Pretty much. Until we hoodwinked him into invading Kuwait. It was time to get those bases built in Saudi. No more pussy-footin' around.

We had him all the time? I doubt this, despite the fact he was a friend of the US in the past I see no logical reason or evidence to support this.
For example the war could have been shortened and less lives lost and less expense with higher public opinion if Saddam was caught sooner in my opinion. Certainly a more desireable outcome for the US forces but it could not be done. Saddam was on the run.
What surprises me most is that he did not leave but it does make sense when you are the world's most wanted man and most talked about. It would be impossible for him to hide for long anywhere else.
