This map shows the proverbial ‘line in the sand’ that was crossed by Saddam Hussein after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in August of 1990. International condemnation and the resulting military response were swift, resulting in the success of Operation Desert Storm in February of 1991 after just over a month of conflict.

The map shows the political boundaries of countries across the Middle East, Central Asia, and North Africa. The deployment of the Iraqi army is noted with tanks, and the all-important oil facilities are also highlighted throughout.
