U.S. Invasion Over Iraq Essay

1480 words - 6 pages

The invasion of Iraq began on March 18 2003, which was led by the United States, backed by the British forces and followed up by other nations like Australia, Poland, Italy, and Denmark. Many have said that the U.S invasion over Iraq was a wrong decision by the U.S to disarm the WMD or as we can say Weapon of Mass Destruction which illegally has been owned by the Iraqi. The Iraq was suspected for the possession of illegal nuclear and chemical biological weapons which made the war to start between these two countries. We often hear a lot of media saying about the U.S allied true purpose was to bring freedom and democracy to the people of Iraq. But as we see the current problem right now, we're all have been deceived by these grand words they're saying. These whole idea first started by the President George W. Bush and his compatriots was totally a failure and a big lies. They're purpose was not to disable the weapon of mass destruction but moreover to end the Saddam Hussein's reign over Iraqi people.Saddam Hussein is indeed a man full of mystery, many have said that he has supported the Al-Qaeda terrorism and have connection with the 9/11 incident happened on U.S which brought down the World Trade Center. His supremacy mean notorious personality and his hunger of power have made him to become the President of Iraq for almost 24 years. But in December 13, 2003 he was suspected and captured by the U.S forces for the executions of the 148 Iraqi Shi'ites. Then later on after brought up to trial, on 2006 he was proved guilty and convicted of charges related to the executions of 148 Iraqi and was sentenced to death by hanging on the end of 2006. So it's more likely because of this one man who brought terrors to Iraq and Bush's discriminative side over the Muslim was the cause of this useless war to happen. For me these wars was like Bush's revenge and replacement of his anger on the case of 9, September 2001 which have brought bad image on the U.S defensive militaries. As a result these U.S invasion over Iraq has caused a very terrible impact on the political, economic and social structures of the Iraq people and so do the U.S it selves.For the economical aspects, this war has lead to an unstable weak economical structures and conditions to the Iraq people. We see that it has weakened the economical growth and financial income of the country which of course could slows down the infrastructure progress and future improvement of a country. It also has decreased the capital investment in the country, this is happening because of the decreasement in the number of investor who doesn't want to invest and spend on their money on the country which is still on the middle of the big war. Of course it would be a very wrong mistake to plan an investment or business on the country which its future is still in question and its surroundings is in chaos. The death tolls and injured Iraq's citizens payment also have caused some funding problems to the Iraq people, it's...
