The Iraq War has been one of the largest geo-political events of the last decade. The 2002 decision by the United States to invade in will have repercussions that will be felt by peoples all around the word for many more decades. Debate about the decision to wage war was heated. Debate about the way was then fought has been just as passionate. Because of these schisms in opinion, a guide is needed. People need all the information they can get to properly make up their minds about the many different dimensions of the Iraq war.
