And BTW don't forget who sold the Iraqis the weapons they did have....

[The IDF] has plenty of detail.
...except the page linked to doesn't list numbers. Are there many non-Western weapons in the Army section? I find it interesting that they *only* mention eastern-bloc countries, carefully omitting mention of the US, Europe and allies - to me, this implies an agenda of some sort. - MoonShadow
Of course the IDF have an agenda!  There is well-known French equipment mentioned too (e.g. the Mirages); google as I suggested and I'm sure you'll find which are US-made.
Much of the weaponry is Soviet; the Chinese, French and Yugoslavians were selling equipment to Iraq too. 

(Where it doesn't say who produced something you can usually google on the model number to find out a bit more; weapons have a pretty good internet presence.)

[globalsecurity.org] says,
Some armored units had a small amount of modern Western and Soviet equipment, but most of the Army had 1960s-vintage Soviet and Chinese equipment.
Plenty of WMDs, then. ;) - MoonShadow
