Apparently fearful that the US was moving towards an inevitable war-stance, French President Jaques Chirac made the last minute motion in a session of the United Nations Security Council to cede the Sudetenland to Saddam Hussein, in an apparent effort to stave off a US-led invasion of the Middle Eastern country .'”

The historically highly-contested area is made up of the Bohemia and Moravia provinces in the vicinity of the Sudeten mountains .

Chirac defended his actions to critics who called the move ‘appeasement.’

“Come on, you know if we hadn’t given it to Saddam, the thing would have just sat around unused anyway.”

(Thanks to E.C. in the comments section for the idea.)
