What year was Iraq called Iraq?
The term Iraq has existed as a regional term in Arabic for Mesopotamia more or less since the Arab conquest of Mesopotamia in the 7th century C.E. However, as the name of an independent or quasi-independent region, it only gained the name Iraq in 1919, when it was designated as the British Mandate for Iraq.

for oil. the official reason is that we are trying to establish democracy/peace there (Iraq never asked us for democracy, that isn't necessarily the best form of govt.). 2nd …answer: Not for oil. After the war started, Iraq did not pump any oil for years, and is now only starting to pump some oil. The real reason the US went into Iraq is threefold: 1. It was feared that the unrest and wholesale murders caused by the Iraqi government would lead to wars all over the middle east. If that happened, our ally, Israel (Where many of our vegetables, like tomatoes come from) would certainly be attacked and destroyed by the Arabic power: Saudi Arabia for one, Syria and Iraq, too. 2. During the time that the US intelligence agencies were closely watching Iraq's leader, Sadaam Hussein, they found some verified evidence that Iraq some weapons that would cause amounts of damage and casualties if they were used. (Most likely on Israel) This was plenty of reason to go into Iraq and disable their major weapons systems. It turned out later that the Iraqis did not have those weapons, but the information about them was turned out by the Iraqi government propaganda people. The reason? Iran was rattling their swords again, and threatening to invade Ira1. Iraq's army was not nearly big enough or well-wnough equipped to fight off the Iranian army. As far as hidden weapons in Iraq was concerned, the US and United Nations DID find a number of buried weapons sites, one of which was composed of a squadron of modern MiG fighter jets. 3. The honorable president, George W. Bush had as his advisor his father, the former president George H.W. Bush, who had been severely criticized during his presidency for not going in and capturing Sadaam Hussein. The elder Bush wanted badly for his son, the president, to correct that error by going to war with Iraq.

Answer 1 Iraq has nothing to do with any Arabic words. It comes from the Pahlavi (middle Iranian language) Arak, which means "lowland".
