Thank you, veterans of #operationdesertstorm and #operationdesertshield as the 27th anniversary of this event is remembered this week. #military #veterans #supportourtroops

Today marks the 27th anniversary of Operation Desert Storm. Pictured here is a member of the RAF Regiment from a Biological Recognisance Team during the Gulf War, 1991. Operation Granby was the name codename given to the British military operations during the Gulf War. The Gulf War (2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991) consisted of two major operations. The first codenamed Operation Desert Shield (2 August 1990 – 17 January 1991) was the buildup of troops and defense of Saudi Arabia. The second codenamed Operation Desert Storm (17 January 1991 – 28 February 1991) was the combat phase. It was a war waged by coalition forces led, by the United States in response to Iraq's annexation of Kuwait. The RAF Regiment Gunner in this picture is wearing his full protective CBRN suit. The threat of Saddam using CBRN Weapons was very real. Commanders were greatly concerned that Saddam would use chemical weapons, as he had already used them against his own people and during the Iran-Iraq War.

The news correspondents were reporting on anti-aircraft fire and air-raid warning sirens. Fifteen minutes later (at precisely 3:00 am IST) the CNN telecast went off the air. #OperationDesertStorm, the most definitive air campaign of our times, was on. #airpower #aviation #fighterplane #GulfWar #History #OTD #1991

The Gulf War 💥 #OperationDesertStorm

January 17, 1991. 27 years ago. Operation Desert Storm begins. An allied military operation spearheaded by the United States is launched to force invading Iraqi troops out of Kuwait after Iraq failed to leave Kuwait by the U.N. deadline of January.15/1991. Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein had invaded Kuwait in August 1990 claiming that Kuwait was on historically Iraqi land and had no rightful claim to sovereignty. This claim however, was poorly supported and the decision to invade Kuwait was likely due to Kuwait's vast oil reserves and Iraq's inability to pay its outstanding debt to Kuwait. President George Bush organized a military coalition immediately after the invasion as well as several rounds of sanctions through the U.N., beginning in August 1990, however Iraq continually refused to withdraw. On January.17/1991, over 1,000 sorties were flown in the first day of the attack wiping out mainly military and strategic targets. After just over a month of fighting on February.27/1991, Iraqi forces would retreat from Kuwait and Iraq would surrender, marking an end to the Persian Gulf War. #desertstorm #operationdesertstorm #opdesertstorm #gulfwar #persiangulfwar #war #kuwait #invasionofkuwait #bush #georgebush #georgebushsr #un #unitednations #georgehwbush #hussein #saddamhussein #militarycoalition #1990s #90s #1991

WCW...this female MP during Operation Desert Storm, which commenced 27 years ago today on January 17, 1991. This was the U.S. led coalition's effort to liberate Kuwait from Saddam's forces. The coalition whipped them good! #femalesoldiers #womeninuniform #operationdesertstorm

January 17, 1991. After Saddam Hussein fails to withdraw Iraqi forces from Kuwait by the Jan. 15 deadline, Operation Desert Storm begins with an extensive aerial bombing campaign. For 42 consecutive days and nights, UN coalition forces subjected Iraq to one of the most intensive air bombardments in military history. Americans were able to watch the launching of SCUD missiles on CNN. The air campaign was followed by a ground assault on February 24. It was a decisive victory for the coalition forces, who liberated Kuwait and declared a ceasefire 100 hours after the ground campaign began. But in Iraq, Saddam Hussein's government remained in power for another 12 years. #operationdesertstorm #desertstorm #gulfwar #cnn #saddamhussein #iraq #scud #kuwait #90s #january17

It was January 17, 1991, the Gulf War began at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time when the U.S. military commenced combat operations in the Persian Gulf as part of Operation Desert Storm. The coalition effort was to stop Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein who ordered the invasion and occupation of neighboring Kuwait. Approximately 697,000 U.S. troops took part in the war which lasted 43 days. #scguard #operationdesertstorm #desertstorm #gulfwar
