Keep talking keyboard warrior.These words coming from someone residing in USA is not a weird thing since you didn't feel the power of Ba'ath army enjoying life abroad or maybe you are too Young to know that. Without an eroded army, the Ba'athis could have waged war again having the whole western and eastern powers backing them. You seem unknown to Ba'athis of Iraq, we couldn't let them go easily. Something about national pride and dignity.
Actually had family on the frontlines during that war. So you should watch your mouth.
Saddam attacked because he sensed an opportunity to take oil rich land on the border due to revolution. When faced with stiff resistance he offered to strike a ceasefire.
The only reason the war continued was Khomeini’s instance on exporting the revolution to Iraq and rest of the Middle East. This false narrative your pushing that he did it to weaken Saddam from future attacks never existed. The military objectives by Iran were met (defense of its territorial integrity) instead he kept the war for 6 more years and then accepted the same ceasefire begrudgingly.
You don’t know what the future would have held if Iran accepted the ceasefire. So don’t speak for the hypothetical future as if you were certain of the events that would have unfolded...you are not God.
Not wasting anymore time on you.
