The Persian Gulf and Iraqi WarsBook - 2005
In 2003 the United States entered into the second chapter of a war with Iraq that had begun in 1991. In the first chapter, U.S. soldiers had helped to free Kuwait from Iraqi invasion. In 2003 U.S. soldiers were again sent to the region, this time to topple the regime of Iraqs dictator, Saddam Hussein. The country was quickly liberated, and Saddam and many of his followers were eventually captured. Americans and Iraqis were then faced with the new challenges of establishing peace and a new government in a country torn apart by years of fear and unrest.
