Abstract

Written before the launching of Desert Storm this overview of the Gulf crisis addresses such questions as: What caused Iraq to occupy Kuwait? Why do some Arab leaders and certain sectors of Arab public opinion sympathize with Saddam? What is Saddam's strategy? The author places the responsibility for the crisis directly on Saddam and calls upon him to withdraw forthwith from Kuwait.
