During 1991 several United Nations Security Council resolutions including Resolution 688 demanded that the Iraqi regime attend to the issues of repression and aggression. There was a period in August/ September which was called 'the chance for peace'. In mid-September 1991 President Bush, in a previously agreed to videotaped address to the Iraqi people, warned of their path to war 'against the world'. Saddam Hussein's videotaped message in answer on September 25th warned the Americans of 'a repeat of their experience in Vietnam. ' The chance for peace was being lost.
