What is the US interest on the operation desert storm?

The stated US interest in operation desert storm was the liberation of the state of Kuwait, and the protection of the Kingdom of Saud. The main reasons for the us interest in this region is of course oil, and the protection of the oil fields (and our suppliers) from the actions of rogue states and the instability that would be caused by the disruption of oil flow. (Think Catrina on a much larger scale.)
