They don't want to apologize or to pay.

In the name of the Iraqi people it is my duty, as a head of government, to express to you our regret and apologies for the systematic destruction of Kuwait during the seven-month occupation from August 2, 1990, to February 1991, by the Iraqi army, and for the deep wounds that we have caused you, which affected many of your families,” said Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki whose comments came during the visit of Kuwait 's Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Ahmed to Baghdad. Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki did not try to persuade Kuwait to forgive most of his country' $15 billion debt, because he knew that for seven months the Iraqi army rounded up Kuwaitis, executed them at the doorsteps of their houses, drove thousands more from their homes during the occupation then blew up some 700 oil wells.
To see Keira Knightley pictures is easy ,but to see her at my doorsteps is a %100 illusion . To separate reality from illusion, we must say that the Kuwaiti people were attacked in their homes and they deserve an apology and compensation. This is reality. The apology by the Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki was the illusion.
On 2005 Japan’s prime minister apologized for his country's World War II aggression in Asia, and On 30th of August 2008, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi apologized to Libya for damage inflicted by Italy during the colonial era and signed a $US 5 billion ($5.8 billion) investment deal as compensation.
Japan's apology and the remarkable agreement between Italy and Libya sets a very important precedent for the relationship between civilized countries. Iraq’s apology is a justification for the actions of Iraq’s army in hopes that it helps Kuwaitis get over memories of the occupation. Kuwait's Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser will visit Baghdad next month knowing that an apology to Iran for the 8 years war has never reached Tehran from Iraq's Shiite-led government. Sheikh Nasser knows that Nouri Al-Maliki is not Silvio Berlusconi.
