The U.S. should have attached clear instructions to the presentbox of weapons they gave to Saddam.

Instead, it must have been something more like
'Dear Saddam,
Please accept this small token of friendship and go have some fun.

We really don't like Iran.'

He even did them that favor. Not his fault it didn't work out so well. They got help, which is unfair. And then the remaining weapons were just sitting there... to not use them would have been impolite.
I bet he was pretty surprised when the U.S. suddenly went all TsunTsun on him after all his efforts.
