Paper #3 : Comparing Two Iraqi Invasions

In roughly 1250 words, address the following.  Due April 9 in class.

Compare the US reactions to the Iraqi invasions of Iran (in 1980) and Kuwait (in 1990). What type of language did the Reagan and Bush administrations use?  How were they different?  How do you explain this difference? 

Sources: Use the relevant chapters from Freedman, as well as research from the New York Times and/or other newspapers. (For the New York Times, see this link.)  From the newspapers, get the specific quotes used by Administration officials in the days and weeks after each invasion.
