Transcript of Iraq War
Gulf War Ends
Saddam Hussein pulls his
troops out of Kuwait and the end to Operation Desert Storm Ends it lasted 6 months, 3 weeks and 5 days
September 11th, 2001 four
hijacked planes by al-Qaeda
two which hit the south and north buildings one struck the Pentagon and one crashed in a field 9/11 is one of the main reasons
America got into the
Invasion Of Iraq
In March Of 2003 George W. Bush sends
troops to invade Iraq vowing to destroy all Iraqi weapons of mass destruction(WMD) and taking out the man behind all of this Saddam Hussein.
December 14th 2005 when he was addressing the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, George W. Bush admitted to the citizens of the United States that Saddam had WMD's was not true but insisted that the removal of Saddam Hussein was the right choice.
U.S. Governments Reason To Go To War
1. George W. Bush told the people of America that Saddam Hussein had WMD's and vowed that he was going to stop the WMD's and take out Saddam and have the Iraq people appoint a new president.
Media's Side To This War Or "Real Reason For This War"
"There were only two credible reasons for invading Iraq: control over oil and preservation of the dollar as the world's reserve currency."- John Chapman
What We Believe Actually Happened
We believe that the whole Iraq war was about oil because our government lied to us. George W. Bush said that there was WMD's in Iraq but they told the public that it was not true. Many of the media reporters believe that was all about oil because Iraq is rich in oil. We believe this because Iraq is the second largest oil supplier and at the time the U.S. gas and oil prices are sky-rocketing up. So i feel that George Bush wanted to get control of the oil that way we can get control of the oil problem that was arising.
Many media sources say that the real reason for he war in Iraq was over oil and control of the oil reserves in Iraq. So that America can control the flow of oil.
This video shows a viewpoint on the media coverage of the Iraqi war. He uses facts and evidence to show how the media turned a blind eye to the war going on in Iraq.
I think the media didn't cover the war as much as it would, say, something like Virginia Tech or even reality T.V. is because the media is able to make more money off of reality T.V. and our personal apathy towards the war didn't encourage the news station to show any coverage of the war
Currently Iraq is very unstable because of high unemployment rate and the poor relation between Iraq's religious groups mainly due to a civil war. Even though the oil business is booming, Iraq remains in this poor state. Al Qaeda-linked Sunni extremists continue to attack the government trying to overthrow them.
The media would rather make money on more profitable venues than showing the tragedies of war. The media intentionally didn't show coverage of the war for this reason.
There are many negative consequences that this war has put on the United States and Iraq.
The war has claimed 190,000 lives, over 70% of which were civilian deaths.
The war ultimately cost taxpayers over $2.2 trillion.
The true number of U.S. and allied forces that were injured is estimated
25-33% of all troops deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan have depression or PTSD
