The invasion of Kuwait by the Iraqis took place in Aug of 1990. The invasion caught the world off guard. Saudi Arabia had a small military and was practically unprotected. The index reached its high in late Oct, just as the military and economic concerns over Kuwait attained their maximum level of distress. By mid Nov we had enough soldiers and weaponry in Saudi Arabia, to hold off the Iraqi forces. At this point the index started to decline. The price of oil dropped sharply and the stock market recovered. The ground war in Jan was quick and costly for the Iraqi forces. As it stands now, there are two more major battles to be fought in the Middle East, the Gog war and the battle of Armageddon.
A host of other prophecy related events like the peace treaty between the PLO and Israel have resulted directly for the Gulf War. The rise of the UN as a world policing force was another.
Some of the categories have been replaced over the years with ones of equal value.
