Within hours of the invasion, Kuwaiti and US delegations requested a meeting of the UN Security Council, which passed Resolution 660, condemning the invasion and demanding a withdrawal of Iraqi troops. On August 3, the Arab League passed its own resolution demanding a withdrawal. The resolution also called for a solution to the conflict from within the League, and warned against foreign intervention. On August 6, the Security Council passed Resolution 661, placing economic sanctions on Iraq.
There were three Gulf Wars in the 20th & 21st Centuries: 1. Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988) 2. Operation Desert Storm (Jan/Feb 1991) 3. Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003- )
