During the eight years of the Imposed War (1980-88) against Iran, many countries provided financial and military aid to then Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, with US, France, and Germany as major contributors.
The following is the list of the countries which aided Iraq during the (1980-88) Imposed War against Iran:
The United States:
The United States was Saddam’s most important encourager to attack Iran.
With the fall of the imperial regime in Iran, the Americans had no more access to the vast oil resources of our country, and immediately after the victory of the Islamic Revolution, they started their hostile campaigns and attacks against Iran.
The failed Tabas Military attack, the Nojeh coup, and dozens of other plots were some of the US government’s anti-Iran moves at the time.
When the Americans failed in all these plots, they encouraged the then Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to attack Iran.
