The US couldn't afford to let Saddam have so much oil it would shift the balance of power in the region
Thats the way you win wars. with brutal assault on your enemies without caring about civilian deaths thats how all major wars were won
Let's be frank here; although a case can be made for your statement regarding Oil and giving Saddam Hussein too much power, the real reason for concern on your part about Saddam Hussein's invasion and occupation of Kuwait was his opposition to Israel.
Saddam Hussein was an Arab Fascist who enjoyed the support of the United States for many years, as long as he was fighting Iran especially. But with peace and a weakened Iran, there was an opportunity for multiple Elite factions to make use of the situation in Kuwait to begin the age we're in today.
They'll be after Israel too someday.
But man is a fickle and disreputable creature and perhaps, like a chess-player, is interested in the process of attaining his goal rather than the goal itself.
