On this day in 1991, after 100 hours of land battle following roughly 5 weeks of air operations, the United States declared a ceasefire in its military campaign to drive Saddam Hussein's invading forces out of Kuwait. That was a good day, but looking back now it was the first major battle of World War IV, and the conclusion to that battle has been accomplished only recently with the sovreignty of a free Iraq. Let's hope it sticks.
