During the invasion, about 1,000 Kuwaiti civilians were killed, and about 400,000 fled the country. this invasion still affects the health of the citizens.
  • Kuwait: By the end of this, all of our oil will be gone!
  • During the invasion over $1,000,000,000 banknotes were taken from Kuwait. Iraq demanded that Kuwait pay their war debt, but Kuwait denied. Kuwait was already losing money, but they were then asked to supply drinking and irrigation water for Iraq, which cost them more money.
  • Due to the war, Kuwait's deserts' rigid surface layers were destroyed. This destruction increased the amount of wind-borne sand. It also created more, larger sand dunes
  • While under attack, Kuwait's oil well were looted. Those that weren't looked, where set on fire by the Iraqis. At one point, Iraq lied about Kuwait taking their oil in order to get money.
