This chapter discusses the new conflicts that arose following the end of the Cold War. It was noted that the end of the Cold War appeared to bring a peace dividend to the United States. However, Iraqi forces conquered Kuwait shortly after, thus forcing George W. Bush to order U.S. troops back into the Middle East. The chapter looks at the conflict in the Persian Gulf and Noriega, and provides a description of the aerial assault in Iraq and Kuwait. This conflict is better known as the Gulf War, which proved to be an unquestionable triumph for Bush.

Keywords:   Cold War, United States, Iraqi forces, Kuwait, George W. Bush, Persian Gulf, Noriega, conflict, aerial assault, Gulf War
