ABSTRACT
The article discusses the decision of the administration of U.S. President Bill Clinton to drop the ouster of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein as a precondition for lifting the United Nations economic embargo on Iraq. The reason behind the decision being that the U.S. and Great Britain are being sensitive to the common European and Arab sentiment that the precondition went too far. Whatever the U.S. intentions are in rendering the decision, there Middle East sees the it as a step towards the U.S. acceptance of the status quo. For Iraq, it means that Hussein can pursue his secret nuclear and chemical-weapons programs. Given this, it would not be a surprise if the rest of the Arab world would start mending relations with Iraq.
