575. 1/17/1993

“On January 17, 1993, the two-year anniversary of the start of the Gulf War, Saddam again signaled his refusal to cooperate with UN weapons inspectors, flouting the terms he had agreed to at the end of the [first] Gulf War. Dozens of U.S. Tomahawk missiles obliterated sites of strategic importance to Iraq’s continued weapons of mass destruction programs. Saddam Hussein, in a speech on Iraqi television, warned that ‘the day of battle has come.’ ”
