"The  war on Iraq was portrayed in the U.S. as a war without casualties. Yet, on the first day of air strikes against Iraq (Jan. 17, 1991), the U.S. dropped explosives equivalent to the explosive power of the Atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Throughout the duration of the bombing, explosives equivalent to seven nuclear bombs were dropped, in addition to internationally banned biological and chemical weapons."

leaders assured Secretary of State James A. Baker 3d yesterday
that US forces could use military bases here against President Saddam
Hussein of Iraq, US officials said. "Of course, we now have the use of
bases here in Turkey as a part of
agreements under the North Atlantic Alliance arrangements and
understandings," Baker told reporters before leaving Ankara for
Brussels, where he will hold talks with NATO officials today. Turkey is
one of the 16 members of the alliance. Baker said that "in the event
there were to be full-scale hostilities .

The United States maintains more than a dozen joint facilities with
Turkey [...] The most pivotal facility now is [NATO's
Incirlik Airbase] [...] near the town of Adana, 500 miles from Iraq,

old ‘Kuwaiti’ girl tells the story, before the U.S.
Congressional Caucus on
Human Rights, that gun-wielding Iraqi Arab soldiers had removed Kuwaiti
babies from their incubators and left them on the floor of a Kuwait
hospital to die. The transcripts of the shocking testimony were sent to
major news outlet throughout the West. The video-tapes of the hearing
‘leaked’ to several TV stations. Op-ed columnists
had a field day. The horrifying
tale was repeated again and again, ad nauseum, by the U.S. press in
referred to by virtually every major American politician. [...]
turns out that the she was the daughter of one of the Emirs of Kuwait
and a member of the Kuwaiti ruling family. And this Emir was also, the
uh, Kuwaiti ambassador to the U.S. [Saud Nasir Al-Sabah.]
girl, known only by her first
name and fictive position (’Nurse Nayirah’), had
been previously coached by a team from Hill & Knowlton (then
the world’s largest PR firm). [...] Needless to
say, the girl’s testimony turned out to be completely false.
Not only was Nayirah not even a nurse anywhere and almost assuredly was
not in Kuwait when the Iraqis invaded, but it was later determined that
the hospital in question had not one incubator removed, nor were there
any actual reports of infant deaths at any Kuwait hospitals.
