Was vengeance the best solution? America is very grateful for the assignation of Osama Bin Laden but does this guarantees national security? So far America has not seen a positive impact from the war only nearly a decade of devastation of human loss and economic repression. However the war had finally ended we are now hoping for a clear and bright reformation for America. Conclusion 2. Life
By September 22, 2004, between 12,800 and 14,843 Iraqi civilians had been killed as a result of the U.S. invasion and occupation, and almost 40,000 had been injured.
Iraqi citizens have dealt with a rise in crime and have also dealt with a number of psychological impacts of the war.
Unemployment has almost doubled and Iraq’s oil company has suffered greatly. Interest paid on the funds borrowed to finance the wars and a potential nearly $1 trillion in extra spending to care for veterans returning from combat through 2050.

President Obama announces total Iraq troops withdraw Saddam Hussein statue topped down The Iraq Survey Group was the US-led team dispatched to find Saddam's purported weapons of mass destruction after the US invasion, led by David Kay.

A presidential commission concludes in March 2005 "not one bit" of prewar intelligence on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction panned out. 2004: In 1968, Saddam helped Al-Bakr become the president and Saddam become vice president himself.
During that same time, Saddam helped develop Iraq's first chemical weapons program and created a powerful security apparatus, which included both Ba'athist paramilitary groups and the People's Army, and which frequently used torture, rape and assassination to achieve its goals.
Saddam forced al-Bakr to resign, and on July 16, 1979, Saddam Hussein became president of Iraq. Social science 102- K
