In a major test of the post-Cold War order, Saddam's million-man army invaded Kuwait in 1990 and looked set to roll into Saudi Arabia, which would have given the Iraqi strongman more than 40 per cent of the world's oil reserves.

When the Soviet Union finally fell, Bush heralded it as a "victory for democracy and freedom" but held back on implementing a US-centric policy on the confederation of nations that emerged.

In August 1990 he responded to Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, creating a national coalition led by the U.S. that liberated the oil-rich yet tiny nation but stopped short of toppling the Iraqi dictator.
