What country was invaded by Iraq in 1990 under the orders of Saddam Hussein?
Iraq's forceful annexation of Kuwait gave Iraq control of about 20% of the world's available oil. The annexation was not recognized by the UN Security Council, and a trade ban went into effect. Operation Desert Storm (the first Gulf War) was a coalition attack on Baghdad as a result of the invasion.
