Summary
Any Kuwaiti citizen old enough to remember can tell you precisely where he or she was on August 2, 1990, when the tanks of Saddam Hussein's vaunted Republican Guard rolled in from the north, invading the small nation and plunging it into the depths of darkness and fear. That moment captured the entire world's attention. President George H. W. Bush's famous words, "This will not stand," became the resolute call to action that moved nations. His resistance to Saddam's aggression was the catalyst for a modern-day miracle, as 35 diverse nations from around the world united to right a terrible wrong.
