MIL 208 Week 5 DQ 2 The Gulf War

Short description

The war to evict Saddam Hussein’s troops from Kuwait in 1991 was one of the most lopsided military victories of modern times. Coalition forces led by the US defeated the Middle East’s most powerful army in a matter of days. After completing this week’s reading assignments and watching the video “Operation Desert Storm: The Gulf War to liberate Kuwait,” answer the following questions: • Why did the US become involved in this conflict? • Why were Coalition forces able to defeat the Iraqi Army so thoroughly? • What was the greatest difficulty in forming the Coalition for U.S. leaders? • What role did airpower play in the conflict? • How did the US keep Israel out of the fighting? • What was the greatest military difficulty the US faced in conducting this operation? • Was the manner in which the Gulf War ended a direct cause of the Iraq War? Why or why not? Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly sources, and properly cite any references. In addition to the text, you must utilize at least one scholarly source from the Ashford Online Library in your post. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts in a manner that is substantive and advances the discussion by Day 7. One response must be to a classmate whose viewpoint differs from your own.
