Diamond, Howard

This case study describes the struggle by key national security officials in the administration of President George H.W. Bush to respond to Saddam Hussein’s August 1990 invasion of Kuwait. Of particular interest are the effects of the “Vietnam syndrome” on civil-military relations during the crisis, and the ensuing decline in popular support for the intervention.
