OPERATION DESERT STORM was the codename for the first Gulf War, a successful U.S.-Allied response to Iraq's surprisingly successful invasion of neighboring Kuwait in August of 1990 and then quickly amass his troops on the border to Saudi Arabia. That's when a meeting between Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney, General Schwarzkopf, and King Fahd of Saudi Arabia quickly led to largest buildup of American forces since the Vietnam War.

On April 5th, 1991 Iraq accepted a cease fire.
