    From what I know of him, Paul Wolfowitz is a very brillant man. He was one of the so-called "neo-conservatives" that persuaded President George W. Bush to invade Iraq in April of 2003. I strongly suspect that Saddam Hussein was perceived to be a greater danger to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. I can not dispute that Israel might have been a reason, but it was not the major reason. We need to remember that it was Saddam Hussein who invaded Kuwait in 1991, not Israel. The motive: oil and the price of oil. From Indonesia, your country, as a member of OPEC, would understand this. Mr. Wolfowitz may have failed to appreciate the ability of Saddam Hussein to control Iraq. That could have been his costly mistake. We need to find a solution for both Iraq and Israel-Palestine before everybody kills off everybody else, and it becomes a wasteland.
