They denied possession of prohibited weapons (prohibited by the truce 
hey accepted to sign). They were caught many times with prohibited 
weapons and stopping UN inspectors doing their job.

Saddam was a pain for too many people; he overstepped the limits imposed

Apart for this, the US forces found and recovered tonnes of Yellowcake 
after the war. And people have very few uses for Yellowcake.
