Or is it the 16th anniversary?
16 years since 1991 Gulf War that may have not really ended, but left Saddam Hussein in power. Much of that time folks in USA must have felt guilty about leaving Iraqi people caught between Hussein and UN sanctions.
Or back even farther?
When we gradually became more and more dependent on Middle Eastern oil.
You're right, the 16 anniversary of the war was 2 months ago. People in the 1990's just didn't think about it, but the war was still going on. It was a more of a "cold war" than a "hot war," but it was still war. Combat pay was even being paid.
