In 1991, the Cold War that had begun in 1947 was finally over. The Soviet Union states have broken and now, it is just Russia. In July 1991, India (now the fourth-largest world economy) abandoned its policies of socialism and autarky and began extensive neoliberal changes in its economy. Iraq invaded the small country of Kuwait. Thirty-three countries joined the United States during the Gulf War to kick Iraq out of Kuwait. We sat in our living rooms and watched on television as our forces bombed their defenses to start Operation Desert Storm. After just 43 days, the whole thing was over. We later (in 2003) captured Saddam Hussein, who was then executed by hanging in 2006.
