Invasion by Saddam Hussein
Kuwait was invaded on 2 August 1990 by Saddam Hussein after receiving tacit approval personally one week before from U.S. Ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie. The attack was quickly condemned by U.S. President George H. W. Bush who launched the Gulf War.

A December 2013 report by Elizabeth Dickinson for the Brookings Institution stated that "Over the last two and a half years, Kuwait has emerged as a financing and organizational hub for charities and individuals supporting Syria's myriad rebel groups. Today, there is evidence that Kuwaiti donors have backed rebels who have committed atrocities and who are either directly linked to al-Qa'ida or cooperate with its affiliated brigades on the ground."
Kuwait announced in 2016 that it would take a DNA sample from everyone: citizens, expatriates, and visitors. They promised that the program "does not include genealogical implications or affects personal freedoms and privacy."
