I know that Saddam Hussein waged wars against Iran and Kuwait (and also against an international coalition which fought to liberate Kuwait during the Gulf War) in order to acquire more territory for Iraq. However, I'm wondering if Saddam ever aimed to expand Iraq in other directions as well. I'm presuming that Turkey would have been completely off-limits due to it being a NATO member, but what about Syria, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia? Did Saddam ever seriously consider or even merely think about invading those countries in order to acquire more territory for Iraq?
