On August 2nd, 1990, Saddam Hussein launched his troops against
Kuwait, triggering the first major international crisis of the
post-Soviet era.  But was this invasion a surprise in the first
place?  Were all diplomatic means really used to try to resolve the
issue peacefully?  Was there any threat from Iraq against Saudi
Arabia or against any of the other Gulf states?  Why wasn't
Washington's rhetoric against Saddam ever matched by any real support
to the Iraqi opposition groups?  What purpose can the embargo on Iraq
serve if it is not to weaken Saddam Hussein, a result it has
evidently failed to achieve to this day?  What is the truth behind
the mysterious "Gulf War Syndrome" that goes on affecting hundreds of
thousands of Gulf War veterans and local populations -- more and more
of them every day?  A two-year investigation, _Hidden Wars of Desert
Storm_ brings answers to all of these questions, based on documents
never seen before on television and backed by interviews of such
prominent public figures as Desert Storm Commander, General Norman
Schwarzkopf, former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark, former UN Iraq
Program Director Denis Halliday, former UNSCOM team-leader Scott
Ritter and many others.
