I am reading Bill Gertz’s Treachery, How America’s Friends and Foes are Secretly Arming our Enemies. Gertz’s makes the case France, Germany and Russia were Saddam’s main weapon providers.

No wonder France would not giving the US a positive vote in the U.N. They were arming Saddam with Oil-for-Food money. Not our friend!
