367. 8/5/1990

"On August 5 [1990], President [H.W.] Bush stepped off Marine One on the White House lawn and, referring to the Iraqi invasion, uttered the most famous words of his presidency: 'This will not stand, this aggression against Kuwait.' The spontaneous remark meant one thing: war."

 – House of Bush, House of Saud, Craig Unger, 8/5/1990
