Awesome footage of the last time US battleships fired in anger | We are the Mighty

As part of Operation Desert Shield to prevent further acts of Iraq after it invaded Kuwait, Iowa-class battleships USS Wisconsin and USS Missouri were pulled out of retirement to provide naval artillery against the Iraqi forces. The military came out with an idea to launch a three-pronged assault where the first one would divert Iraq’s attention and trick them that there was an attack within their shore.
