I'm just surprised how little you so called "more intelligent " beings actually know of the Gulf War ...You claim we invaded Kuwait ..
"Bob of Quantum-Faith" said it was Iran who was invaded ...
We did, and expelled the thieves, returned home and waited for the next UN resolution and WMD inspectors to call the next shot. What are you making pointless assertions about now?

By 2003 the main theme was 1991 didn't quite say it.
Especially since you try to circumvent sanctions, and defy the victorious arrogantly in effort to

No one gives a crap about Kuwait you say.
This sounds just like you said it.
The Gulf War (2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991), codenamed Operation Desert Storm (17 January 1991 – 28 February 1991) was a war waged by coalition forces from 34 nations led by the United States against Iraq in response to Iraq's invasion and annexation of Kuwait.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_War
Sure Saddam's threats to other things and places apply, including scud launches into Israel.
But the gist of the matter is much simpler.
"The initial conflict to expel Iraqi troops from Kuwait began with an aerial bombardment on 17 January 1991. This was followed by a ground assault on 24 February. This was a decisive victory for the Coalition forces, who liberated Kuwait and advanced into Iraqi territory."
Everyone tends to care about people being bullied by assholes, especially nations being bullied by them.
The Baathist's forces conquered Kuwait in the first week of August ...August 7th US forces are deployed in the KSA ( kingdom of saudi arabia )..

Ostensibly to liberate Kuwait ( 7 months later )...Look , "Aura" how could the Administration be forthright and actually exclaim " We're gonna put your sons and daughters in harms way ; to protect the Saudi oil fields ! "

The Gulf War.

OPEC was geting too greedy. Hurting our economy.

Bush let the gorilla loose.

Bush made OPEC pay for caging the gorilla, at a litle profit, and OPEC got less greedy because the gorilla was still there.

Our economy picked up again because of cheaper oil and Clinton claims the credit.

"The economic and financing issues surr
ounding the Desert Storm Operation are
unique in this survey in several ways. First, it was the only military operation
considered that did not require any increase in military expenditures as a percentage
of GDP. In fact, it took place during the
long reduction in military spending as a
percentage of GDP that accompanied the end of the Cold War. In this broad sense,
there is no reason to consider the economic
effects of financing the buildup. In fact,
an economic contraction occurred during Desert Storm, unlike the typical wartime
economic boom. The 1990-1991 recession is not
typically attributed to the war,
except for its possible negative effects on confidence. Instead, it is typically
attributed to contractiona
ry monetary policy (undertak
en through 1989 to quell the
rising inflation rate), problems in the ba
nking sector, and the spike in oil prices
associated with the Iraqi invasion of Kuwa
it. Timing supports this argument: the
monetary tightening took place in 1988 and 1989, the recession began in July 1990,
the oil price spike began in August
1990, and military operations
began in January 1991. After the conflict e
nded, the economy began to expand again (in March 1991)
— it did not experience post-war contraction.
Unlike previous military conflicts, in which the Federal Reserve had tolerated
excessive money creation, durin
g Desert Storm the Federal
Reserve sought to stamp
out inflationary pressures that originated before the conflict, even at the risk of
recession. After the conflic
t ended, the economy began to expand again. The budget
deficit rose during the conflict, but it would be difficult to claim that military
spending contributed to the rise in the deficit when overall military spending was
declining during this time. Instead, the ri
sing budget deficit was characterized by
falling tax revenues and risi
ng non-military outlays, both of
which can be largely
accounted for by automatic changes in re
venues and outlays caused by the economic
slowdown.
13
To reduce the widening deficit, the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act
of 1990 cut spending and increased taxes.
It was estimated that over the following
five years, 57% of the de
ficit reduction would come fr
om spending cuts and 29%
from tax increases (14% would come from lower interest payments). Changes to
excise taxes, payroll taxes, and individua
l income taxes accounted for the bulk of the
tax increases. The revenue raising provisions of the act were estimated to raise tax
revenues by 0.3% of GDP in 1991. Most of
the spending reductions were to come
from reductions in military outlays and Medicare spending.
14
Another unique aspect of the financin
g of the Gulf War was the financial
contributions that the Unite
d States received from its allies. In effect, foreign
governments financed a large part of
the war effort for the United States —
contributions from foreign governments
equaled $48 billion, wh
ile the overall cost
of the war was $61 billion in current dollars.
15
In the balance of payments, these
contributions represented a unilateral transfer to the United States, which is recorded
as a reduction in the current account deficit.
The exchange value of the dollar was
unlikely to have been significantly aff
ected, however, since a substantial portion of
the contributions came from Saudi Arab
ia and Kuwait, both of whom had a
de facto
fixed exchange rate with the dollar.
