#1 Why the hell are THEY paying, they didn't invade anybody.

#2 I believe the UN got involved because Saddam wasn't going to pay for the damage claims by Kuwait. Now Iraq actually has a government with the will and means to compensate Kuwait for having invaded it.
Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't really see a problem here.
