On the Kuwait Liberation War - I've refused to call it the Iraq War for a long time. Now, on the Iraq Invasion War - it just goes on and on and on. In the December 18-24 issue of the Washington Post - Weekly they had an article (on p.22) entitled "Gulf War 3 May be Inevitable".

The article drew parellels between the Kuwaiti Liberation, the Iraqi Invasion and the Thirty Years War and Hundred Years War. Mostly that, at the time, they didn't refer to it as the Thirty / Hundred Years Wars but they refered to it as King Henry's War or King Edward's War or the English Invasion of France (again). I've even heard WW1 and WW2 being referred to the "The Second Thirty Years War".

Its obvious that whatever discontent the cause the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait weren't resolved but cause, directly or indirectly, the Iraqi Invasion War. Its likewise fairly obvious that after the American and British troops are withdrawn that there will be some "loose ends" that still need to be collected and tied up.

take care,
