The Iraq War 2003 - 2011

The Iraq War 2003 - 2011

8 Years ago, on March 20th 2003, former President George W. Bush declared war on the Iraq of Saddam Hussein. The heavens opened, raining down bombs and bullets. The war seemed to be over very soon. The people rejoiced, Saddam was gone, yet not yet found and Bush declared Mission Accomplished. However, the months and years following this victory speech told a different story. Sectarian violence between Sunnies and Shiites and everyone against the allied forces turned Iraq into a civil war zone. 8 Years of fighting, thousands of deaths, hundreds of thousands of injured and generation of kids growing up in a hostile environment has resulted in a Saddam Hussein free country, but is Iraq a safer place for it? Warning: Some images depict scenes of death.
