472. 4/3/1991

U.N. Security Council Resolution 687, passed on April 3, 1991… called for the elimination of all of Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction and most of its missile programs, intrusive international inspections, a ban on military imports, a secure and recognized border between Iraq and Kuwait, and compensation for Kuwait and others. It seemed to take care of most of our remaining problems but one, namely, the fact that Saddam remained ensconced.”
