-saddam Hussein was born on April 28, 1937, in the village of Al-Awja in central Iraq.-in 1957, at age 20, Saddam joined the Ba'ath Party, whose ultimate ideological aim was the unity of Arab states in the Middle East. So he thought he was the leader of the arab world.-but survived. Saddam was shot in the leg. Several of the would-be assassins were caught, tried and executed, but Saddam and several others managed to escape to Syria, where Saddam stayed briefly before fleeing to Egypt, where he attended law school.He also nationalized Iraq's oil industry, just before the energy crisis of 1973, which resulted in massive revenues for the nation so became even more powerful. In 1979, when al-Bakr attempted to unite Iraq and Syria, in a move that would have left Saddam effectively powerless, Saddam forced al-Bakr to resign, and on July 16, 1979, Saddam Hussein became president of Iraq. After that he called for an assembly of the Ba’ath party. Around 70 names.
From September 22, 1980 to August 20, 1988, after years of intense conflict that left hundreds of thousands dead on both sides, a ceasefire agreement was finally reached.228 billion dollars were directly expended , and almost 400 billion dollar of damages (must likely to oil facilities) Both countries supported rebel movments against the other. Iranians were supporting group of people or a shia party that tried more than once to kill high rank Iraqi governores. And Saddam helped the activists or the anti government in Iran by providing weapon and killing the shia in Iraq. Kuzestan an are know for its extensive oil fields. The attack went successfully and sadam captured the city. But the iranina resistance proved strong and got the city back after few of battles. War continued by attacking oil tanks from both side. Iraqies used aircraft to sank the tankers and iranian used helicopters. THE ARABIC REGION SUPPORTED SADAM.
-When George W. Bush (Jr.) first came to power in 2001, the chances of war in Iraq grew rapidly. According to The Finer Times report, Bush accused Iraq of starting to develop weapons of mass destruction and to ensure UN weapons inspectors were allowed full access to Iraq -Iraq countered this by saying there were no weapons of mass destruction and that they were not allowing UN weapons. -However, through late 2002 into 2003 Iraq reluctantly allowed weapons inspectors back in the country and were seen to be making progress, nevertheless this did not stop the US pushing issues further. Also, during that same period the UK through Tony Blair were backing President Bush whole heartedly.- The first teams into Iraq actually went in during the summer of 2002 and these were covert CIA operatives-On march 20th 2003 the Iraq war started.
-It is worth mentioning that although the expenses were accurately projected by Bush White House economic policy adviser Lawrence Lindsey (around $100-200 billion).-Bush administration’s initial estimates were about thirty times too low, it was estimated at $50 billion to $60 billion
Deaths of Iraqi civilians and combatants were more difficult to track because of a lack of reliable official figures. All counts and estimates of Iraqi deaths are highly disputed. And according to BBC’s report, the organization Iraq Body Count has been collating civilian deaths using cross-checked media reports and other figures such as morgue records.There have been between 97,461 and 106,348 civilian deaths up to July 2010
According to the latest figures from the US Department of Defense, the US has lost 4,487 service personnel in Iraq since the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom on 19 March 2003.When the last US combat troops left on 31 August 2010, 4,421 had been killed , of which 3,492 were killed in action and almost 32,000 had been wounded in action. According to BBC’s report, since then, 66 have died of which 38 were killed in action in what was called Operation New Dawn. 305 have been wounded in action since 1 September 2010.
