“On August 2 [1990], Iraq invades Kuwait. ‘This will not stand,’ says President George H.W. Bush. As the United States and Saudi Arabia prepare for war against Iraq, Osama bin Laden warns the House of Saud not to invite American troops into Saudi Arabia and offers his Afghan Arab warriors instead. He is rebuffed.”
