#4 Prolly why they are closing the tunnels, which they seem to have 'discovered' quite a few recently.

#7 It helps aligning yourself with a winner as they did in the First Gulf War, deploying around 35,000 that included two armored divisions and 5,000 paratroopers.

Joint Forces Command - North
At 1600 hours 24 February, the 3rd Egyptian Mechanized Division, TF Khalid and TF Muthannah began to attack Iraqi positions in Kuwait. They encountered Iraqi fire trenches, minefields, barriers, and harassing fires as they crossed the border in their zone. Saudi and Kuwaiti forces began the offensive shortly after the Egyptians. The Egyptians, concerned about an Iraqi armored counterattack, halted their advance short of their initial objectives and established blocking positions in sector for the night. They resumed offensive operations at daybreak the following day. Meanwhile, the 4th Egyptian Armored Division prepared to follow the 3rd Egyptian Mechanized Division. The 9th Syrian Armored Division followed the Egyptian Divisions as the JFC-N reserve and conducted screening operations with one reconnaissance battalion on the right flank to tie in with MARCENT.

#9 They've had their moments in '73 at the start, a water crossing assault isn't the easiest thing in the world, especially against JOOOOOOOOOOOOS.
