On this day in 1991, President George H.W. Bush informed Iraq that they must pull out of Kuwait within twenty-four hours, or the United States would invade.

I cannot believe it was 15 years ago.

I'll never forget when the bombing started. Baghdad had already been bombed before the air raid sirens went off, so I mentioned to my friend that we must have used our stealth bombers. He then asked what that meant. I told him they were planes that could not be seen by radar.

The next day I overheard telling a group of people about the secret "invisible" planes. I started laughing because I couldn't help but think of Wonder woman's jet.
