War Pigs
Interesting data here detailing arms sales to Iraq from specific countries between 1973-1991. Some highlights on the top providers:
USSR: Accounted for 57% share of sales
France: Accounted for 13% share of sales
China: Accounted for 12% share of sales
Former Soviet Bloc (Czechoslovakia, Poland, Romania): Accounted for 12% share of sales

Brazil: Accounted for 2% share of sales

USA: Accounted for 1% share of sales

How interesting it is that the three countries who lead the Opposition to confrontation with Iraq are also the main suppliers of arms and weaponry for Saddam's war machine. How very interesting.
