They all agreed that Saddam’s actions were against all international human laws. They also opened our eyes when they talked about their experiences and suffering under the occupation of Iraqi forces.
Our view is that it is unfair and agonizing when a country that worries only about its internal affairs and the well-being and prosperity of its citizens gets attacked by a bully; a dictator that violates human rights and uses a weaker neighbor to achieve wealth. Saddam Hussain’s notable failure in the Iraqi-Iran war destroyed Iraq’s budget and therefore he was seeking a way to compensate and what easier way can he do that than invade an oil-rich, weak, and defenseless neighbor?
Saddam’s order of invading Kuwait is considered immoral. Saddam used a weaker neighbor to compensate for his failures in the region. Kuwait fell victim to his expansionist methods.
Innocent people should not suffer from people with power and authority. In fact, those people should facilitate the formation of a peaceful and fulfilling community. There’s a common proverb that says “he who does not feel shame, does whatever he wants.” A person who has no shame and conscience does whatever he finds satisfying, irrespective of others. We believe that if 50% of people would stop interfering and meddling in the life of others, then the other 50% would live happily.
