Abstract

An analysis of the role of the United Nations in the Gulf crisis reveals that the UN took decisions which allowed a coalition headed by the US to wage war against Iraq. Soon after Iraq's invasion of Kuwait, the US president opted for the use of force, and the UN mandate authorising such use of force was sought after the US administration had decided upon a timetable for military action. From the very beginning, the US could manipulate the actions of the security council to attain US objectives.
