(FILES) In this photograph made available by the official Iraqi presidential photographer on 26 April 2002, Iraqi President Saddam Hussein (L) is seen sitting in a tent in Najaf (Irak) in 1991 during Gulf War, with unidentified others. – Thirty years have passed since Iraqi tyrant Saddam Hussein invaded neighbouring Kuwait, but despite hints of a diplomatic rapprochement, people both countires say the wounds have yet to heal. On August 2, 1990, Saddam sent his military, already exhausted by an eight-year conflict with Iran, into Kuwait to seize what he dubbed “Iraq’s 19th province.” The two-day operation turned into a seven-month occupation and, for many Iraqis, opened the door to 30 years of devastation which is still ongoing.
