On this date August 2, 1990

Iraq invaded Kuwait, seizing control of the oil-rich emirate. The day came to be known in Kuwait as “Black Thursday.” 330 Kuwaitis died during the occupation and war. Sadam Hussein, leader of Iraq, took over Kuwait. G. Bush led an inter-national coalition for sanctions and a demand for withdrawal. The Iraqis were later driven out in Operation Desert Storm.

I am sure several people remember this day. I was a Freshmen in high school. The time that it tooked to push them back to Iraq in my opinion was incredible and only shows how amazing our military is. The problem has been the decisions by the people who have not served. This has shown to be truth over and over.
