Gulf War

The Gulf War (2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991), Liberation of Kuwait codenamed Operation Desert Storm (January 17, 1991– February 28, 1991) commonly referred to as simply the Gulf War, was a war waged by a U.N.-authorized coalition force from 34 nations led by the United States, against Iraq in response to Iraq's invasion and annexation of Kuwait.


The Gulf War oil spill is the largest oil spill in history making it one of the 10 worst man-made disasters of all time. In 1991, following the invasion of Kuwait, Hussein sent men in to blow up the Kuwait oil wells. They managed to set over 600 ablaze and these burned for over seven months. The oil spill that resulted from the fires caused considerable environmental damage.


Simple question???!! Still an unanswered question is: why are the Muslim refugees / immigrants NOT accepted or accommodated by ultra rich Muslim countries like Qatar #1 richest, Brunei 4th, Kuwait 5th, UAE 7th, Bahrain 12th and Oman 22nd? Most of these countries are much richer than the countries they are flocking in Europe including the United States.

The Nineties show mans worst side as Ethnic Cleansing is carried out in Rwanda and The Balkans, The Gulf War begins and ends quickly following Iraq's Invasion of Kuwait when Allied Forces led by the US end it quickly, After many years of White Rule Apartheid ends in South Africa, The World Wide Web and the Personal Computer / PC grow in leaps and bounds and together with the growth of mobile phones change our lives forever.
