IRAQ - Decision Makers.
There has been no change in the decision-making mechanism in Iraq since the UN imposed a total embargo on this country in August 1990, when Iraqi forces invaded Kuwait. This is despite all the difficulties faced by Iraq after its defeat in late February 1991, when Kuwait was liberated by a US led-coalition of forces from 28 states. Now the UN embargo has several cracks, with flights into and out of Baghdad airport getting more frequent and Iraq threatening to stop oil exports whenever it demands a change in the oil-for-aid programme to create further cracks. The US, meanwhile, is bracing for a worsening of its energy crisis and will be critically short of oil during this summer.

Noun 1. as King Fahd of Saudi Arabia Fahd bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, King of Saudi Arabia (1923? - August 1, 2005) was the king of Saudi Arabia and leader of the House of Saud. One of thirty-seven sons of Saudi founder Ibn Saud, and the fourth of his five sons who have ruled the Kingdom (Saud, Faisal, Khalid, Fahd, and has been since the early 1970s. He is the first leader in the world to have survived more than ten years of isolation. He survived the world's first high-tech war which liberated Kuwait from Iraq in early 1991. That followed eight years of war between Iraq and Iran (1980-88).
The darling of the West as he fought Iran, Saddam was more than once praised by then US President George Bush Sr. until Aug. 2, 1990, when the former took Kuwait in less than 24 hours and the latter began calling him the worst dictator since Adolf Hitler. Saddam has since become convinced that, no matter how much he co-operates with UN, the US will not let the Security Council end Iraq's isolation as long as he is in power.
George Bush Jr., now the ruler in Washington, seems to believe the situation might change. As he promised during his electoral campaign, Bush Jr. is more committed to getting Saddam overthrown. But even if Saddam is put out of the way - the only way out for him is the grave - the Baathist regime in Baghdad will survive.

Despite its problems, Iraq remains a most important prospect for oil firms. This country has the second largest oil reserves Oil reserves refer to portions of oil in place that are claimed to be recoverable under economic constraints.
Oil in the ground is not a "reserve" unless it is claimed to be economically recoverable, since as the oil is extracted, the cost of recovery increases incrementally in the world and huge opportunities, with the foreign companies barred from Saudi oil E&P.
