This chapter deals with Iraq’s struggle between the years 1991-2003, against the international supervision by the UN Special Commission (UNSCOM) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that were trying to expose Saddam’s unconventional weapons. It describes their efforts to dismantle Iraq from its non conventional weapons and production capabilities. Saddam’s cousin defection and its repercussions for the commissions’ activities, and the continuing Coalition attacks on various targets in Iraq in order to convince Saddam to cooperate with those organizations. The struggle between the sides surrounding this issue brought the Coalition countries headed by the US to decide to go to another war against Iraq (in 2003), thus ultimately bringing to the collapse of Saddam’s regime and the armed.
