On November 29, 1990, “the United Nations authorized the use of ‘all necessary means’ to drive Iraqi forces from Kuwait if they failed to withdraw by January 15 [1991] and to ‘restore international peace and security in that area.’ Security Council resolution 678 passed by a vote of 12-2, with China abstaining and Cuba and Yemen voting no.”
