It’s the 28th anniversary of Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait which happened on August 2, 1990. It’s certainly a fresh wound in the Kuwaiti sentiment or rather in the Saudi or the people of the Gulf or the Arab sentiment.
What proves that this wound still suffers pain is the loud controversy caused by the comments of the Iraqi envoy in Kuwait when he called on the Kuwaiti government to adopt the term “the Saddam invasion,” in reference to Saddam Hussein, instead of the “Iraqi invasion” in the country’s educational curricula.
This suggestion aims to limit the incident – which is one of the events the times – of Kuwait’s invasion by the Iraqi army and that was led by Saddam Hussein to one person or perhaps to one family or tribe or even to the glorious Baathist Party of the solemn Saddam Hussein.
