Iraq War: Timeline, Beginning and End

Iraq War: Timeline, Beginning and End Though the Iraq War officially began on March 20th, 2003, it was decades in the making. After 1991’s Gulf War, the United Nations and the U.S. put pressure on Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein as leader and to adhere to sanctions the UN had imposed regarding weapons of mass destruction. Iraq chose not to cooperate with UN weapons inspections, and so a U.S.-led coalition invaded. American troops were scheduled to leave Iraq by the end of 2011, finally ending a long-lasting and unpopular war. In this video, WatchMojo.com looks back at the events that led to the invasion of Iraq, as well as some of the key dates and events that occurred during this conflict.
