Bush, formou uma coalizão de 32 países para expulsar as forças iraquianas e Schwarzkopf assumiu o comando de 425 mil soldados americanos e de outros 118 mil militares aliados, para dizimar a máquina de guerra de Saddam, sem derrubá-lo do poder no Iraque.Schwarzkopf, conhecido como "Stormin Norman", morreu na cidade onde ocupou sua última chefia militar como titular do Comando Central dos Estados Unidos.
