Just one small point: About Saddam's being drawn into a trap, you mustn't
forget Margaret Thatcher's role in this. She is almost certainly the one
who convinced Bush to take the hard line (she had very good memories of
her Falkland gambit -- though that was indeed different) in a meeting in
Colorado after the invasion of Kuwait, not before.

So I'm not sure there was a "trap Saddam" plot... more likely opportunists
taking advantage of the occasion after the fact. The plot came later, with
the manoeuvres to draw some Arab countries and most of Europe into the
U.S.-British alliance, through various threats and promises (e.g. the U.N.
leadership to an Egyptian, and the menace of taking away France's
permanent seat at the Security Council to give it to Germany).
