Why did Desert Storm happen?

Months went by and Saddam’s army remained in Kuwait despite world outrage and numerous UN resolutions. So President Bush began organizing a coalition of Arab and Western forces to liberate Kuwait. Eventually a deadline of January 16, 1991 was issued to Saddam to remove his army from Kuwait. When that deadline passed, Operation Desert Storm began. Kuwait was liberated in late February.
