371. 8/6/1990

"The UN Security Council reacted swiftly with the imposition of sanctions and an oil embargo on Iraq…on August 6, 1990. These measures were linked to Iraq's withdrawing from Kuwait. As…the reaction on the part of the United States became more explicit, Saddam gave a speech attacking foreign countries that occupied holy places."

 – Hide and Seek, Charles Duelfer, 8/6/1990
