The First Iraq War also known as the First Persian Gulf War, began on August 2nd, 1990, and it lasted until February 28 1991. This war was fought between the UN coalition forces from thirty-four countries led by the United States. The leader of Iraq Saddam Hussein attacked Kuwait on August 2 1990. This led to many economic sanctions to Iraq world wide. Six months later the United States sent in their troops to Iraq and urged other countries to join in forces. The conflict ended with the aerial bombardment of Iraq on 16 January 1991 and the final victory was sealed on the 23 of February.
This was a severe war so the bombing and the battles took a number of casualties civilian and military on both sides.
It is estimated that over 3,500 civilians died of bombing and 100,000 civilians as a result of other war operations. The number of Iraqi soldiers that died in the war is unknown. It is believed that over 15,000 soldiers have died in this war. Anyways Saddam Hussein never gave the exact number, but he gave a larger number of civilian deaths in order to gain support of other Islamic countries, and reported smaller amounts of soldiers dead.
The Coalition has only reported 190 deaths of Iraq fire, and the rest of 379 coalition deaths were out of accidents. The number of wounded soldiers is 779. The greatest number of lost soldiers is kept by the US 294 and the lowest number of casualties by France. By the reports you can see that the number of people who died in friendly fire (fire by other allied forces) is grater than the number of people who died in battle. Its cost was calculated to be over $61 billion by the American congress. Too bad that so many people had to die, not to mention the number of people who died until they caught Saddam Hussein.
