Maybe the tension between Iraq & Kuwait was about oil

but I would suggest one also consider the map of Kuwait. I would be referring to the coastline. All of the useable coastline with access to the gulf was carved out to Kuwait. Like the US Civil War I doubt it is any one specific cause, likely a number of causes. In the same way the Civil War was none of the Ottoman Empire's business regional strife resulting from the arbitrary piece mill of said empire is really none of our business.
