What Can We Learn From Operation Desert Storm?
In the early hours of August 2, 1990, Iraq invaded Kuwait, quickly overwhelming the smaller oil-rich nation.
Kuwaitis rapidly fled. The country’s defense forces were overwhelmed. Those not destroyed retreated to Saudi Arabia.
Why did Iraq invade?
There always seems to be reason for an action as bold and provocative as that of Iraq’s.
Presumably someone (e.g. Saddam Hussein, Iraq’s leader) gave thought before launching the invasion.
