Iraq, which still cannot raise its head

The invasion was launched on March 20, 2003, under the leadership of President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair of England, under the slogan "Iraq Supports Terrorism". No world body has spoken out against Iraq's sovereignty in the face of the attack. At the outset of the war, President Bush addressed the Senate on eight key issues of the country.
01. Acting in accordance with the American National Security Plan.

04. Land liberation and eradication of terrorism.

05. Obtaining intelligence related to the terrorist network.

06. Gathering information on large scale weapons networks.

07. Distribution of humanitarian aid and law enforcement.

08. Protection of Iraq's oil and other resources.

On February 5, 2003, former US Secretary of State Colin Powell told the UN Security Council that Iraq was preparing to launch a chemical attack on the United States. Colin Powell has stated that there are other plans to attack the United States using drones. At the end of the war, neither the United States nor the British military were able to make any such discovery.

Kofi Annan, who served as UN Secretary-General during this period, has repeatedly said that US involvement in the Iraq war was strong and that international intervention was minimal. He also expressed his deep regret over the invasion. During the war, the American people also strongly criticized the Bush administration. It rallied to a fierce Republican backlash. As a result, Democratic candidate Barack Obama defeated Republican candidate John McCrane in the 2008 US presidential election.

The conflict has now spread to four major provinces. What exists politically is also highly unstable. In the final stages of the war, even the American people took to the streets to stress that the invasion of Iraq was unjust. The following statement made by the then Secretary General Kofi Annan after his tenure is sufficient to understand how dormant the United Nations was in the face of all these circumstances.

“There were serious legal issues surrounding Bush's policy on military operations against weaker enemies (in Iraq) and the war against Iraq. On September 16, 2004, I pointed out, "It is inconsistent with the United Nations Declaration and, as we see it, illegal."
