The war began after Saddam Hussein punched the Ayatollah in the arm and said that the Ayatollah started it. Iran got mad and wanted revenge, but Iraq made the first move, sabotaging Iranian suicide bombs so they don't work. Pretty soon, Iraq atacked a small town known as Kuwait (that is likely to be a story made up by the Communists). And then America got involved.
America sent its greatest heroes to fight the infidel terrorists of the east and quickly declared a victory after they were running out of money. President George H. W. Bush decided to bomb the two countries to rub it in, but the gave the pilots the wrong coordinates and Japan was accidentally bombed instead.
