Because Iraq invaded Kuwait and Kuwait is an ally of the US. Iraq's invasion also was a major threat to Saudi Arabia and under no condition could the Western world allow such a concentration of the world oil reserves to be controlled by Saddam Hussein.

Did Iraq go to war with the United States?

Iraq did not go to war with the US. Iraq did invade Kuwait in 1991, and there was a UN response of which the US was the leading contributor. Then the US went back to Iraq again, in 2002, because of concern about noncompliance with UN security council resolutions and weapons inspections. Iraq never declared war on the US, although it is possible to argue that their actions were provocative.
