The Annuncement Of The Attack On Iraq By President George Bush On January 16, 1991

639 words - 3 pages

President George Bush announces the U.S. attack of IraqWhen a war is taking place between two countries, every single detail of why the countries are going to war must be very clearly stated. In the case of the 1991 Gulf War between the United States and Iraq, the stated reason was that the leader of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, led his country to invade a neighboring Arab country named Kuwait.

President Bush expresses his want to help the people of Kuwait by moving...
