Hello, Freedom Flames! Today, we’re discussing the unfortunate truth behind the Persian Gulf War I, which lasted from August 1990 to February 1991.

We now know the primary motivation for entering the Gulf War was due to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, after which the public heard horrifying tales surrounding Dictator Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi troops, who news medias claimed were pulling babies from incubators and leaving them to die in Kuwaiti hospitals.

A frightening violation of human rights that would motivate anyone to do something about unspeakable evils, these claims helped rally the American public into supporting an Iraqi invasion.

Hill & Knowlton

Unbeknownst to the American public, the deep state decided to go above and beyond to motivate support into waging war against Iraq after their invasion of Kuwait.

In the wake of weariness to go to war in distant lands against countries they never heard of due to the repercussions from the Vietnam War, the American public became apprehensive about war, but this was before an actual public relations firm was hired to help sell the conflict to the American people.

While it’s stated that several PR firms were hired to help sell the Gulf War to the public, Hill & Knowlton, the largest PR firm in the world at the time, are said to have served as the primary mastermind behind the campaign.

But we’ll get to that a little later.

First, let’s examine the event that really rallied public support for invasion.

 

Nayirah Testimony

Perhaps the most famous lie to justify an Iraqi invasion centered around Nayirah, a “young Kuwaiti girl” who delivered a shocking testimony before the Congressional Human Rights Caucus in October 1990.

In the testimony, Nayirah states, “I volunteered at the Aladein hospital with 12 other women who wanted to help as well. I was the youngest volunteer. The other women were from 20 to 30 years old. While I was there, I saw the Iraqi soldiers come into the hospital with guns. They took the babies out of the incubators . . . took the incubators and left the children to die on the cold floor!”

Again, definitely a testimony to rally anyone to combat against such violation of human rights.

The phrase, “babies pulled from incubators and scattered like firewood all across the floor,” was reported at least six times by then-President George H.W. Bush while the evening news played Nayirah’s clip endlessly, sparking public outrage against Hussein and Iraq.

Bush would also go on to state, “and they had kids in incubators, and they were thrown out of the incubators so that Kuwait could be systematically dismantled.”

When the Gulf War Resolution was making its way through the House of Representatives, the incubator story accompanied the debate by Representative Henry Hyde, who stated, “Now is the time to check the aggression of this ruthless dictator whose troops have bayoneted pregnant women and have ripped babies from their incubators in Kuwait.”

 

The Inconvenient Truth

Saud Al-Sabah, father of Nayirah, meeting with George H. W. Bush.

The Resolution swept through the House and Senate, leading coalition forces to invade Iraq in January 1991.

But who was Nayirah?

A CBC investigation entitled ‘To Sell A War‘ discovered that Nayirah was not a random Kuwaiti girl, but she was Nayirah Al-Sabah, daughter of Kuwaiti Ambassador to the United States, Saud Al-Sabah.

The public relations firm mentioned earlier in this article, Hill & Knowlton, prepared Nayirah’s testimony. The Kuwaiti-government-supported AstroTurf organization “Citizens for a Free Kuwait” was established as a front and paid Hill & Knowlton as a means to sell the Gulf War to the American public.

How effective was Citizens for a Free Kuwait?

The Kuwaiti government funneled almost $12 million to the organization, whereas nearly $11 million went straight to Hill & Knowlton.

One of George H. W. Bush’s best friends and inside political advisors, Craig Fuller, actually ran Hill & Knowlton’s Washington D.C. office at the time. Also, Hill & Knowlton USA’s Chairman at the time, Robert K. Gray, had leading roles during the Reagan campaigns in 1980 and 1984.

As for the Congressional Human Rights Caucus that held the testimony, it happened to be a Hill & Knowlton front itself.

Sound unbelievable? Check out this article the New York Times released back in 1992.

 

The Truth Behind the Gulf War?

Now, we know a few things about Saddam Hussein, one of which was that he was indeed an ally of the United States, as evidenced in the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq War, a nation the US has had spats with since they and the British MI6 overthrew the democratically elected Iranian leader Mohamed Mossadegh in 1953.

While Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait could’ve certainly been prevented via diplomacy, he did have a little more justification for invading Kuwait, as Kuwait exploited the Rumaila oil fields, which sat at the Iraqi-Kuwaiti border, and ended up slant drilling into the Iraqi side, literally stealing resources from Iraq.

It was these events that led an Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, but as far as the US-led coalition is concerned, it’s tough to justify the coalition invasion of Iraq, which isolated the nation from the rest of the world due to questionable acts committed by Kuwait, which many argue Iraq acted in self-defense of its resources.

While Hussein was indeed corrupt and his invasion could’ve been solved in a nonviolent manner, the extent the Kuwaiti government went to motivate a US-led coalition invasion into the Persian Gulf using an American PR firm is beyond unjustifiable.

 

Conclusion

The US’ 100+ years of questionable foreign policy helped influence Raven’s Flock, set to be released in 2020.

Again, guys, my reasoning behind creating these latest articles is to give a little bit of a background in relation to influences that fueled my desire to create Lord of Columbia. Not just my First Trilogy, but my entire Lord of Columbia Series, which will span across thirteen books.

Beginning with Episode IV in the Lord of Columbia Series, Raven’s Flock, you’re going to see a slew of allegories playing out related to what I’m writing, such as the sinking of the Lusitania, the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, and now, the conspiracy that led to Gulf War I.

Just about every detail of alternative history I talk about on my site has helped influence my writing of Trilogy II, starting with Raven’s Flock and ending with Book VI, which I expect to be released in January 2021.

And finally, if you found this article helpful and are enjoying my reports of American foreign policy gone awry, please share this article on your social media accounts as together, we can work to bring the unsaid history out of the darkness and into the light.

This article was arguably my easiest one to date, as much of what I shared is common knowledge, even covered by mainstream media outlets like the New York Times and Washington Post, where I gained a good deal of my resources.

Next, I’m going to talk about an event that catapulted the United States into one of the deadliest conflicts in world history, the events that led up to the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941.

  1. Hi Todd,

    I was quite young when the first Gulf war happened, so I wasn’t really aware of the Nayirah story. There must be so many stories like this that are broadcast to justify attacks and wars to the public. Do you think that the public are getting wiser to them, or are they so well fabricated now that we will never know the truth before it is too late?

    1. Hi, Tom, the Nayirah testimony took place a few months before my own birth (April 1991), so I was unfamiliar with it for years, and instead, took my history teachers’ words that Hussein was a bad guy who killed babies. It was enough for me to celebrate my country’s invasion and liberation for years until I uncovered not only the truth here, but many truths that initially left me in denial.

      My country would never do this, I thought.

      I hate to admit how wrong I was, and today, it looks like a pack of lies are setting us on a collision course with Iran. 

      I’m glad to say I think there is more public awareness, but we definitely need more before we actually have enough people to demand a stop to this madness. Channels like Blackstone Intelligence and the Ron Paul Liberty Report have helped open peoples’ eyes, but there’s still much work to be done. 

  2. Hi Todd,

    Wow! This is powerful information. I am an alternative high school Social Studies teacher(World History, U.S. History, American Government, and Economics). Yet, the Persian Gulf War has long been a mystery to me. You gave a clear and cogent explanation of the reality behind the war and made your reader understand the subterfuge that helped create it. Lies to the public about dead babies or other falsehoods always seem to work to get the public to support the unsupportable. I intend to change my approach to teaching the Persian Gulf War.

    The idea of using public relations firms to garner public support seems to raise the level of wrongness. Using a politician daughter to push the need for an invasion of Iraq is just as bad. The fact that friends of George Bush also made money on this effort is equally appalling. 

    These articles are a great way to promote Lord of Columbia. This trilogy seems very interesting and I will take out some time to review that material.

    Thank you for this valuable information.

    God bless you!

    1. Hi, Ronald, it’s definitely sad to see the American government colluded with the Kuwaiti government, knowingly hiring on a PR firm to spread lies to justify a foreign invasion of Iraq. And again, I’m not saying Hussein made the right move in invading Kuwait, but I think we can all rest assured what Donald J. Trump would do if say, Mexico tried to slant drill into US oil fields. He’d be leading the troops across the border in a tank. 

  3. I’m so glad I came across this blog. It is time that people find out the truth behind the war mongering and what the real reasons are. And yet, every single time, people are pulled into war, fighting “the just cause”. It is sad, sickening … I’m afraid that a lot of readers will not like what you write, they will resent it and claim that you’re “lying”. A great number of people though already know that what you write about is true. All the trouble in the Middle East, it has a history, and Europe and United States are a a big part of that history and also the cause. It goes way back to after WWI, but I’m sure you already know that 🙂

    Congratulations on your blog! It is a very well researched article, well explained and clear, and is seems to me also a good resource to use for schools. How about starting to teach the right history for a change, right? (I teach world history, by the way) 😉 

    I love the information you are providing here. I like reading about these things, about what really happened and not what is made to believe … The books also look interesting. Did you write them? I am also an author. It seems we have some things in common 😉 

    I am looking forward to your next article. I know a bit of what happened before Pearl Harbor was attacked (and what is not included in the history books) , and so I am very interested in reading that article, and many other articles. I am bookmarking your blog for sure. 

    1. Hi, Christine, I can tell you right now I’ve had best friends cut ties with me when I started preaching the unfortunate truths about American foreign policy and the lies that fueled such policy in August 2017. It was something I just felt compelled to do, and I realize many will think what I’m doing is anti-Patriotic.

      However, as I recall it, Patriotism is what fueled rebellion and the American War for Independence against the British Empire, who displayed a lot of foreign policy miscues the American Empire displays today. Soon, very soon, people will learn that what America is doing overseas has nothing to do with freedom and liberation, but instead has everything to do with multinational corporate interests.

      When people bring up the brutality of, say, the Syrian or Iranian regime, my response is that while these regimes are not angels in the slightest, they’re nowhere near as brutal and totalitarian as Saudi Arabia, America’s biggest Arab ally in the Middle East. 

  4. It’s a little crazy how much the media can influence through such propaganda as with Hill + Knowlton back in the early 90s. Honestly I wasn’t aware of Kuwait’s specific actions in regard to slant drilling. Sounds like Sadam didn’t try for diplomacy and furthermore that nobody seems justified in this equation. Thanks for letting us know that these kinds of things influenced your creation of Lord of Columbia.  I’ve already read some and it’s really great so far. Can’t wait to continue reading!

    1. I actually didn’t come across the slant drilling fact until late-2018 and it made sense as to why Hussein wished to invade Kuwait, even if he should’ve, in my opinion, refrained from doing so. He didn’t try for diplomacy and while he definitely should’ve done so, he did what most would’ve done had they been in such a position. I could see Trump doing this if Mexico slant drilled. 

  5. Wow, it just goes to show that you only see what the media wants you to see.  There appears to be a lot we do not get to hear about.

    I was young during these events, but I was more aware of when Saddam Hussein was impeached.  It looks like there are definitely another side to a number of things going on there.

    Great blog, thanks for sharing the truth, something we don’t always get to see or hear.

    John

    1. Hi, John, there’s definitely another side here. Just wait until I uncover some things about the second Gulf War. The truth is definitely out there, hidden in a mass media and government of lies, but the upside is there are whistleblowers everywhere willing to sacrifice everything to tell us the truth. People like Julian Assange and Ed Snowden pique my interest and to me, they’re the real heroes. 

  6. The unfortunate fact of war is that nations need motivating to embolden politicians into the position of declaration. Every war could be prevented by the application of the one thing that always ends war, diplomacy,

    Diplomacy is the sweeping away of the lies and misconceptions that caused the friction that fuelled the lies that drove the motivation in the first place.

    The Gulf war, was the most impatiently awaited conflict that the governments of the western world were petrified that they were never going to be capable of waging because in every single western state the public appetite was dead against the prospect.

    The biggest crime regarding the war that was eventually raised is that in none of the countries who eventually played enough lies into their public to enable the declaration ever brought the people responsible for weaving the lies to justice.

    1. The Gulf War was very impatiently awaited and the disturbing fact of the matter here was the selling of the war by a private public relations firm that governments invested millions into. This alone should be a crime, because it shows the pure evils of cronyist acts. 

  7. Truly an eye-opener; Its unfortunate that one has to question what you hear these days, There are so many lies told to justify an end. The question I ask . Are the people or country better off? What would you prefer-Life before or after? There are examples throughout history. Oh for a Better World. Politics and corruption seem to go hand in hand along their merry way. Thanks for sharing. SAD.

    1. I don’t think the people of the US are. We’ve seen the continual usurpation of civil liberties here in America with the passages of the Patriot Act, the Freedom Act, AUMF, expansion of the NDAA, plus surveillance organizations like the NSA while the implementation of the TSA has literally allowed government to get overly invasive with an individual. Such circumstances only came about after 9/11 and the neverending War on Terror. 

      I’d definitely prefer life before all this war and wars based on lies. We’re so much better off being diplomatic with other nations when it comes to any dispute, whether it’s a legit threat or even a disagreement on trade. War not only hurts the people of the offending nation, but we feel it and have always felt it at home. 

  8. This post is quite interesting. I never knew that Iraq and Kuwait started the war back in 1980s to 90s. What I knew was the one in early 2000s until I came across with your website and read your work. 

    On top of that, the story of Nayirah is quite a catch. You really won’t know the source or the root of the war until you do a lot of research. From there, it becomes the central idea of a novel. 

    Yes, as an aspiring author, your method of gathering ideas is inspiring. I do gather my novel inspirations from real-life situations as well. And yours, from this war and Nayirah’s backstory is a great one. 

    1. Hi, Mecyll, it’s one that few really go into great detail about in public schools and upon reviewing how the US-led intervention started, it’s easy to see why they never go into great detail regarding the Gulf War. It was fabricated from the start. It takes a lot of research, and to be able to turn these real-life events into novel allegories is a challenge, but one that needs to be spread throughout the populace. 

  9. Not quite sure where to begin my comments on this article, you see my son was serving at the time and was originally deployed to the Gulf, but went to a ship instead, the British second in command I know personally, so I have to tread a little carefully with my comments, my thoughts I will leave to me.

    This has a lot of truth in it, as much as a lot is documented, to deceive the American public is nothing short of a disgrace, so thank you for setting the record straight, at the end of the day we are often mis-lead by our leaders, but sorting out the truth and exposing it are two different things.

    Thanks for this hard hitting article.

    Stuart

    1. Hi, Stuart, I’ll definitely state that this was by far the easiest article I’ve ever had to research due to a lot of mainstream news outlets carrying these stories regarding Hill & Knowlton and Nayirah. And it’s beyond discgraceful to deceive not just the Americans but the world in general. The same happened with the War in Iraq, something I’ll be talking about soon. 

  10. I found this to be a fascinating read! I remember when this happened, as I was in college and just started to watch the news. I remember watching the bombing of Iraq in ‘real-time.’ If I am correct; this was the first time for such an event to be on TV.

     As a lover of history, we share similar views. I appreciate you writing about this and trying to get it out to as many people is commendable. With the daily onslaught of faux news (still to this day), it is hard to fathom how others are still blind to the truth. I like the slogan “every war is a bankers war” because that is what it comes down to. Follow the money they say. 

    Do you remember how CNN was caught staging a bombing using a green screen, and the reporter was freaking out trying to put on a helmet, all along still standing in the studio?

    I hope and pray that the truth will come to light soon. Good luck with your book series!

    1. Hi, Colleen, every war is indeed a banker’s war, I can give you that. Well, a banker’s war and a profit to be made from companies like Northrop and Lockeed Martin, who always need the US to have an enemy overseas and allies to sell weapons to, like Saudi Arabia. I can’t recall if I saw that staging, but I definitely saw dozens of staging videos via the false flag chemical attack in Douma last year with the White Helmets. I’m trying to rack my brains, because CNN would definitely do something like this. 

  11. Hi Todd! This was a very interesting read. Researching a bit about this topic, I have come to the conclusion that Iraqi soldiers did commit atrocities (specifically the secret police units). But the story Nayirah told about babies and incubators actually never happened. Her testimony was definitely inaccurate but the effect of her testimony is well known by all of us.

    1. Hi, Henry, and I really like what you’re saying here. I think some might be in the notion that I’m literally siding with people like Hussein, Ghaddafi (I’ll be talking about him in a separate article), and Assad. I’ll be the first to say that these people are all corrupt. However, what government isn’t these days, and America is no exception. Yes, atrocities were indeed committed, but we also need to remember things our own governments, and even governments on our side (like Saudi Arabia and Israel), and what they do to their people. One that really jumps out at me was Saudi Arabia’s brutal murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which took place in 2018. Horrific, if you read the details.
