حتى لا ننسى

by Abdul-Aziz in Kuwait

حتى لا ننسى


كان الخبر قد إنتشر ، و كانت حدودنا قد إغتصبت ، و سماؤنا لطخت و تراب أرضنا الطاهرة ..
في مثل هذا اليوم ، و في مثل هذه الساعات ..
2/8
لن ننسى ..
لـ تلك القلوب التي لن تنسى ..
للقلوب التي لن تُنسى !
لـ آبائنا ، لـ إخواننا .. لدماء أجدادنا ..
لـ أمهاتنا .. لـ أخواتنا ، للأرض الطاهرة .. للبيوت ، للشوارع !
للأرواح التي مازالت تحلق فوق سماء الكويت ..
تداعب علماً مرفوعاً ، تمجد الطرقات .. تسكن بيوتنا الفرحة رغم غفير الإشتياق ..
للوطن ، للكويت ، للنهار الابيض ..
للحاضر ، للماضي ..
لـ آذانِ ما عادت تسمع !
لن ننسى !
2/8

BBC, on this Day 1990: Iraq Invades Kuwait

BBC, on this Day 1990: Iraq Invades Kuwait
More than 100,000 Iraqi soldiers backed up by 700 tanks invaded the Gulf state of Kuwait in the early hours of this morning.

Iraqi forces have established a provisional government and their leader Saddam Hussein has threatened to turn Kuwait city into a “graveyard” if any other country dares to challenge the “take-over by force”.

Iraqi jets have bombed targets in the capital and special forces have landed at the defence ministry and at the Emir’s palace. Road blocks are in place and there are reports of looting in the city’s shops.

Initial reports suggest up to 200 people have been killed in heavy gunfire around the city.

It is reported that the younger brother of Emir Sheikh Jaber al-Sabah has been killed whilst trying to defend the palace, while the Emir himself has escaped to Saudi Arabia.

All communication has been cut with Kuwait and many people, including thousands of foreign nationals, are trapped in the city.

‘Absolutely unacceptable’

1990 Kuwait Invasion لم و لن ننسى

1990 Kuwait Invasion لم و لن ننسى

In the memorial of the Iraqi barbarian invasion to kuwait in 1990, we didn’t & will never forget nor forgive. “yours truly, Abdul-Aziz”

I was just a kid when Iraq invaded Kuwait on August 2nd, 1990. In January 1991 an American-led coalition initiated Operation Desert Storm with airstrikes on Iraqi army positions in both countries. On February 26, after the arrival of coalition ground troops, Iraq retreated, setting fire to Kuwaiti oil fields on the way out.

2nd of August, 1990 @ 6am : a 9 years old kid woke up to the sound of jetfighters, checked it out from his room window & strolled away thinking how cool the army is.
