<div>This is a picture of The Persian Gulf War also known was "Operation Desert Storm" which took place mainly in Iraq, Kuwait and the Persian Gulf. It started in August 2, 1990 - February 28, 1991. </div>
<div>In this photo there are oil wells burning in Kuwait from being set on fire by Saddam Hussein's men which he order to do so. </div>
<div>Basically this war started due to Saddam Hussein almost having access to half of the world's oil. 1/2 of the world's richest oils is in Kuwait which is where Saddam wanted to takeover and hold the oil for ransom in shorter wording. Our President at the time who was George Bush said he wasn't going to let that happen and sent our troops in to stop him. The first ground war wasn't fought until February 24, 1991 and American troops defeat Iraq within a 100 hours of the ground war beginning. Although Saddam was close when he saw was losing than he order his men to set the oil wells and to dump some into the Persian Gulf.</div>
