It is always a tragic cause when war breaks out in any nation of the world because war is a destructive force in itself. So what are the reasons that have caused the Iraq war? A war does not happen for any reason but has many causes to its credit. Let’s take a look at the same and try to analyze what are the causes. The effects of war are always very tragic because it claims a lot lives and creates turmoil in many families. So let us take a look at what has caused the Iraq war.
According to many news reports and channel surveys, Iraq has made use of poison gas against Iran and even its own inhabitants. The weapons used in the war were of deadly nature used with a murderous intent. Also this nation has been in favor of international terrorism. The latter is a deadly offense when the whole world is fighting a war against terrorism for the peace and beauty of the world. There are many weapons which are of a lethal usage and can be used to wipe out many innocent individuals at one go. It was feared that Iraq would share those weapons with these dreaded terrorists.
It has also been observed and consequently reported that Iraq has not abided by the UN Security Council Resolutions. This action has not been done once but been repeated a number of times so that it can cited as one of the reasons on what has caused the Iraq war, along with the above mentioned ones.
The other reason for Iraq being involved in the war is its being the second largest global reservoir and supplier of oil. This in itself is another reason for Iraq being involved in the cause of the war which cannot be dismissed. Thus the oil resources make it a very valuable asset in the Middle East and this is the reason why along with the two other causes, you can be sure that US and Iraq were both involved in the war. Any reason for a war is very valid and has far reaching consequences. Similarly, despite its reasons, even the Iraq war had solid consequences with unhappy results in most cases.
Impact of The War So Far
The Iraq war impacted everyone severely. A lot of soldiers from America perished in the war and left their families bereft. The economy and finances of nations involved in the war were severely impacted to the extent that the future prospects were at stake. The oil resources of Iraq were greatly troubled to a great extent. There were a lot of people who were left without work and many individuals had been severely traumatized by these tragic and brutal war outcomes. A lot of justifications can be conjured up for why the war arose but in no way are we prepared to deal with the unhappy outcome which result after the war is over finally.
