Operation Desert Storm began “At 7 p.m. Wednesday [January 16, 1991]–3 a.m. Thursday in Baghdad–the Iraqi night exploded on television screens at the Pentagon with the unleashed force of more than seven hundred U.S. and allied combat aircraft and the impact of dozens of cruise missiles launched from ships in the Persian Gulf.”
