Then, what year did we go to war with Iraq?
Mar 20, 2003 – May 1, 2003
Why did we start the war in Iraq?
The Iraq War was a protracted armed conflict that began in 2003 with the invasion of Iraq by a United States-led coalition that overthrew the government of Saddam Hussein. Iraqi forces were quickly overwhelmed as U.S. forces swept through the country.
How long have we been in the Iraq war?
