A trip to the last decade!


2003: The U.S. invades Iraq

After Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein failed to meet the U.S.-imposed deadline to leave the country, armed forces from the United States, Britain, and other allied nations stormed Baghdad on March 19, 2003. President George W. Bush subsequently announced the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Iraq War lasted four years, killing more than 3,000 U.S. troops, wounding more than 23,000, and causing more than 50,000 civilian casualties.
