he halted the war. "Mission Accomplished" - ousting Hussein's forces from Kuwait.
To the chagrin of America's war mongering neocons, Bush#1 refused to continue the war all the way to Baghdad and kill off Hussein. The neocons had to wait for Bush#2 to get their desired, but unjustified, invasion of Iraq. The WMD still have not been found.
How would the Korean War have ended if MacArthur had stopped at the 38th Parallel as did Bush#1 at the border of Kuwait? Dugout Doug had kicked the North Korean Army out of South Korea. Wasn't that the UN's mission? Nope, he continued the war by advancing to the Yalu River. Then the Chinese entered the war and the rest is history.
The USA is a defense based economy. It needs war, and the threat of war, to enhance profits for the barons and parasites of the defense industry.
