The Clinton Years

The period that best reflects the 1990s essentially started with Operation Desert Storm, where the US/NATO forces defeated Saddam Hussein in the “First Gulf War” and ended with the attack on the US on 9-11. Bracketed in between those 10 years were primarily the Clinton years. The Soviet Union was now dissolved and the US was the sole “superpower.” China was once again pretty isolated after its brief flirt with the easing of the freedom of speech in 1989.

The 1990s are now considered a good decade for the US. The Soviet Union was gone and the US was the sole superpower.
