Living on borrowed time
Sanctions will never work
Defending the oil fields
In "Operation Desert Shield"
Life seems to reveal a story
Taken from the book of the old
Babylon reincarnates
A million souls praise the false one
The beast will rise from the east
Bringing forth the atrocity.

From the Lord's creation
The abomination
Economic warfare
The revelation
Welcome to Kuwait
Welcome to Kuwait.
Strategic bombardment
Surgical assault
Strategic bombardment
"Operation Desert Storm".


Life seems to reveal a story
Taken from the book of the old
Babylon reincarnates
A million souls praise the false one
The beast will rise from the east
Bringing forth the atrocity.
No peaceful resolution sighted
More soldiers - Tour of Duty
A time to test our weapons
And strengthen our economy
From the Lord's creation
The abomination
Economic warfare
The revelation
Welcome to Kuwait
Welcome to Kuwait.

    General CommentThe Persian Gulf War (2 August 1990 — 28 February 1991), commonly refered to as the Gulf War, and also known as the First Gulf War, the Second Gulf War, by Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein as The Mother of all Battles, and commonly as Desert Storm for the military response, was the final conflict, which was initiated with United Nations authorization, by a coalition force from 34 nations against Iraq, with the expressed purpose of expelling Iraqi forces from Kuwait after its invasion and annexation on 2 August 1990.
    The invasion of Kuwait by Iraqi troops that began 2 August 1990 was met with international condemnation, and brought immediate economic sanctions against Iraq by members of the UN Security Council. U.S. President George H. W. Bush deployed American forces to Saudi Arabia and urged other countries to send their own forces to the scene. An array of nations joined the Coalition of the Gulf War. The great majority of the military forces in the coalition were from the United States, with Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom and Egypt as leading contributors, in that order. Around US$40 billion of the US$60 billion cost was paid by Saudi Arabia.
    The initial conflict to expel Iraqi troops from Kuwait began with an aerial bombardment on 17 January 1991. This was followed by a ground assault on 23 February. This was a decisive victory for the coalition forces, who liberated Kuwait and advanced into Iraqi territory. The coalition ceased their advance, and declared a cease-fire 100 hours after the ground campaign started. Aerial and ground combat was confined to Iraq, Kuwait, and areas on the border of Saudi Arabia. However, Iraq launched missiles against coalition military targets in Saudi Arabia.
