“Back in August 1990, the Iraqi leader had sent armed forces into the neighboring country of Kuwait. This was a small country that had become very wealthy because of it’s huge reserves of petroleum (oil). Saddam’s troops quickly occupied Kuwait, and it became a province (territory) of Iraq.” [The 15th of the month for date sorting purpose only]
