Ten Years Ago

The Iraq War started ten years ago today. What have we learned?

Posted on 3/19/2013



It’s been ten years since the beginning of the Iraq War, which ended up costing the lives of an estimated 4,500 Americans and 127,000 Iraqis. Above are photos of the country, and its citizens, in the wake of the fierce combat, prolonged insurgency and the December 2011 proclamation that the war had ended.

For Iraqis, though life continues, the war’s wounds have yet to heal, as evidenced by the surge of violence this morning that killed at least 56 people.
