Iraq, Saudi Arabia reopen border crossing closed since Saddam invaded Kuwait

Iraq and Saudi Arabia reopened their Arar border crossing for the first time in 30 years. The key trade crossing was closed when then-Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, prompting Riyadh to cut off all diplomatic and trade ties with Baghdad. Although diplomatic ties were restored in 2015, the Iran factor on Iraq weighed heavily on the latter to fully normalize ties with Saudi Arabia.

The Middle East has been around a long time. Let it return to running its own business. So much of what is good has been destroyed. It is Worldly less expensive to buy their oil and do legitimate business, than it is supplying armies and such, for the the profit of the the one percent.

Wow! Trade corridors opened. Don't forget: Iraq was given permission from the US to invade Kuwait. And the resulting propagand against Iraq was perpetrated by a lying PR firm. . . I wonder if this post will remain up.

By the looks of that photo, no one cares if the crossing is open or not.

I am so surprised that this debate is obscure. Try to Google: Ron Paul April Glaspie, Iraq permission to attack Kuwait. I see Google is doing a good job smoke screening the debate. It makes me happy to introduce the debate.
