About This Product

When discussing the "Iraqi war" with our students, it's crucial to provide clarity due to the multiple conflicts that term can denote. Iraq has witnessed a series of wars and military interventions, and the context can change dramatically depending on the time period in question.

Most notable is the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in March 2003, aimed at toppling Saddam Hussein's regime. This war was primarily justified by the Bush administration on the premise of eradicating weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). However, despite thorough searches, these weapons were never discovered. This war sparked significant debate and controversy both domestically and internationally.

The aftermath of this invasion led to a prolonged phase of instability and insurrection in Iraq. Although U.S. forces officially left Iraq in 2011, the nation grappled with continuous unrest and upheaval. A particularly concerning development was the rise of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) in 2014. Responding to this threat, the Iraqi government, bolstered by regional and global allies, initiated campaigns to oppose ISIS and by 2017, had regained control of most territories.

For educators looking to delve deeper into this topic with their classes, I've curated a set of 12 questions accompanying a video resource on the subject. These questions are structured to ensure that our students extract key insights and foster a comprehensive understanding of the various facets of Iraq's contemporary history.
