Flygtningskvinder med børn flyver som en irakisk hær, der er drevet mod Mosul

Refugee women with children flee as an Iraqi Army humvee driven toward Mosul in May, 2017. In the decade following the Gulf War, the United Nations passed 16 Security Council resolutions calling for the complete elimination of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. Member states communicated their frustration over the years that Iraq was impeding the work of the special commission and failing to take seriously its disarmament obligations. Iraqi officials harassed the inspectors and obstructed their work.

Krigen startede 20. marts 2003, da den amerikansk ledede koalition af villige lande med dansk deltagelse angreb Irak og væltede Saddam Husseins regering i et forsøg på at skabe en ny pro-vestlig regering. Det lykkedes dog ikke at skabe stabilitet i landet, og der har siden invasionens afslutning været et oprør i landet og en begyndende borgerkrig mellem

Resolution 1441 set up inspections by the United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) and the International Atomic Energy Agency. Saddam accepted the resolution on 13 November and inspectors returned to Iraq under the direction of UNMOVIC chairman Hans Blix and IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei. As of February 2003, the IAEA “found no evidence or plausible indication of the revival of a nuclear weapons program in Iraq”; the IAEA concluded that certain items which could have been used in nuclear enrichment centrifuges, such as aluminum tubes, were in fact intended for other uses.[96] In March 2003, Blix said progress had been made in inspections, and no evidence of WMD had been found.[97]

According to General Tommy Franks, there were eight objectives of the invasion, “First, ending the regime of Saddam Hussein. Second, to identify, isolate, and eliminate Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction. Third, to search for, to capture, and to drive out terrorists from that country. Fourth, to collect such intelligence as we can relate to terrorist networks. Fifth, to collect such intelligence as we can relate to the global network of illicit weapons of mass destruction. Sixth, to end sanctions and to immediately deliver humanitarian support to the displaced and to many needy Iraqi citizens. Seventh, to secure Iraq’s oil fields and resources, which belong to the Iraqi people. And last, to help the Iraqi people create conditions for a transition to a representative self-government
