The Gulf War was started when Iraq, under Saddam Hussein's leadership, invaded Kuwait on August 2, 1990. The United Nations commanded Saddam to leave Kuwait but he rejected the idea. After much planning an international force involving the armies and air forces of, among others, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada and South Korea forced Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait on February 28, 1991.
