January 30: The United States and the Persian Gulf
As the United States continued hoping for stability in the troubled region of the Middle East, the situation was about to go from bad to worse, as Iraq invaded Kuwait. The American Government saw the invasion of Kuwait as a direct threat to US interests in the region. The US assembled a large coalition of forces from various nations and launched into Operation Desert Storm that forced the Iraqis from Kuwait. With the expansion of terrorist organizations throughout the region including Al-Qaeda, the US soon saw itself fighting a very different war. The events of September 11, fundamentally changed US policy in the region.
