Kuwait (along with the U.S., Britain, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia) invaded Iraq in 1991.

Asked in Gulf War
Who made the gulf war start?
Iraq claimed Kuwait was drilling at an angle for oil to get to oilfields which Iraq claimed were under their territory. They also claimed Kuwait was one of their provinces and sent their army to invade the country. Saddam Hussein was the leader of Iraq at the time. There is more to the story, but the posted question was only about who made the war start.

What country did Iraq invade in 1990?
Kuwait, to Iraq's southwest, was conquered by Iraq in 1990. Kuwait was invaded in 1990 by Iraq who claimed they had been stealing oil by drilling diagonally under the ground and also probably because Iraq did not want to repay the large amount of money they had borrowed from the Kuwaitis during the Iran-Iraq war. The US and a coalition of other nations then retaliated against Iraq in what is commonly referred to as the Gulf War.
