Saddam Hussein's rejection of
diplomatic efforts to solve the crisis led to the decision to
restore Kuwait's sovereignty by military force. The ensuing air war
and the effects of the economic embargo decimated Iraq's military
infrastructure, severed communication and supply lines, smashed
weapons arsenals, and destroyed morale. Overall, the coalition air
campaign accumulated a total of 109,876 sorties over the 43-day war,
an average of 2,555 sorties per day. Of these, over 27,000 targeted
Scuds, airfields, air defenses, electrical power, biological and
chemical weapons, headquarters, intelligence assets, communications,
the Iraqi army, and oil refining.
