My paper discusses what led to and what happened after the momentous moment that Desert Shield erupted into Desert Storm.
The paper is broken down into three sections. The first section is entitled What Led To and What Happened During Desert Storm. There will be three days devoted to the historical background of the war. The facts are included in the unit.
The second part is called Did the United States Act Correctly in Desert Storm . This section deals with alleged war crimes committed by the United States as presented by an international tribunal spearheaded by Ramsey Clark.
The third part is called The Gulf War Syndrome . There will be three days devoted to a discussion on whether the health problems of some Gulf War veterans were related to the Gulf War or whether they were present before.
The main assignment for students in this unit is a mock trial. The students will put the United States on trial to determine if, after all the facts are presented, the country was justified in going to war
