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.

\n. \n Answer \n. \nYes. The soldiers an sailors act provides for reduction of the required payment amounts while you are away. Also, you can set up an allotment before you go to cover the payments. I would recommend both.
In the first couple of years when the war first started, about 1,440 died in one year. But now its about 204 a year. . this should not be the answer to this question who ever type this if i know you i will beat you up okay........i need a specific answer you know the numbers......
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. (MORE)

The war in Iraq is called this because the war is within Iraq, itsnot with any other country. Iraq is having civil wars. Iraq can notstabilize their government or economy.

The Iraq war started in March of 2003. The Iraq war lasted eightyears, eight months, three weeks, and five days.
The Iraq War ended on December 16, 2011. However, a domestic IraqiInsurgency has continued to the preseny.
Answer 1 Iraq has nothing to do with any Arabic words. It comes from the Pahlavi (middle Iranian language) Arak, which means "lowland". Iraq has been ruled by people from what is now Iran including non-Indo-European Kasistes, Gutians and Lullubi and Indo-European Medes, Achaemenid Persians, Scy…thian Parthians and Sassanid Persians. Iranian loan words and speech are everywhere in Iraq, including the capital Baghdad which comes from Avestan "Baga Dad" or "gift from God." Answer 2 The ancient city of uruk was also called erech. Å« ' rÊk) or Erech (Ä ' rÄk). If you follow the pronounciation of the word, (Ä ' rÄk) the phonetics are similar ( 'IrÄq). It appears the nation is named after the ancient city of erech or uruk. Answer 3 Al-Iraq literally means "the land between [the two] rivers" in Arabic. The name comes as a result of the Arabic translation of the region's former Greek Name "Mesopotamia" which means exactly the same thing. The name Al-Iraq (in the Arabic) to refer to the territory first became commonly used in the 7th Century. (MORE)
The outcome of this war for Iraq will ultimately mean freedom. America (with allied help) has freed Iraq of their tyrant leader and is aiding them with the creation of an army and new government. Unless President Obama pulls American troops out too early, in which case the people of Iraq will suffer… great loses in terrorist attacks. (MORE)
It is most commonly called the Iraq War. Some call it the Third Persian Gulf War.
The most common way for soldiers to call home is on pay phones with calling cards, so that shouldn't cost you anything (unless, of course, you send him phone cards to use).. If he is calling you on your cell phone, the call will use minutes from your plan, but that shouldn't necessarily cost you (m…ore) money unless you are going over your allowed minutes. (MORE)
There is a company called TRIAX who offers services not just in Iraq but all over the globe!
no call of duty 4 is not in Iraq. Like the us, Iraq has video games that aren't in the us-that is, if they even have money to buy a video game.
It could be called the "war in Iraq"...it cannot be called the war against Iraq, because the US is NOT at war with Iraq. The US is trying to restore law, order and stability to the Iraqi government/and region.
The Gulf War occurred August 2, 1990. The Invasion of Iraq, or Iraq War occurred March 20, 2003.

Iraq, Iran, and some of the surrounding area used to be called Persia. It USED to be called Babylon or Mesopotamia. . Yes it used to be called Mesopotamia.
An Iraqi. Iraq is home to many cultures and religions, includingethnic Kurds, Shias, Sunnis, and Muslims.
it depends what the student wants to be. a sniper about 2 months. a human bomb 5 months drive a car carrying dyno-m-ite 8 months minimum
The Iraq-Kuwait war took place from 1990 until 1998.. However, if the question is referring to the initial Iraqi offensive when 100,000 Iraqi troops, backed by 300 tanks, invaded Kuwait in the Persian Gulf, this took place on 2 August 1990, and lasted for six weeks.
\nThe Current Iraq war began on March 20,2003 when collation forces entered Iraq from the south mainly. However if your asking about in general then in 1991 during the gulf war collation forces led by the US pushed Iraqi forces out of Kuwait and back into Iraq.
Quite bad, the American occupation has increased violence and decreased the standard of living. Many of the skilled/rich people who can afford it have left the country to flee from the violence. The kurds in the north have set up an autonomous region, its only a matter of time before they go ind…ependent. Utilities are still sporadic, if the violence continues improvement is unlikely. The American occupation has killed an confirmed 120,000 (in addition to the pre-war mortality rate) with the maxinum being 1,200,000 (note that bodies can be uncounted, and that body counting is neither safe nor desireable). PLease note that 120,000 is the minimum, the heavy ordinaces of the US army leaves little to count. So the bottom line is, America screwed up, they murdered (only self-defense is justified and the Iraq war wasn't) 1,200,000 people including their own who have family and friend but since they have the media on their side they'll be the saints. The country will likely slide into anarchy as neither Saudi Arabia nor Iran wants a revived Iraq beside them and will likely try to destabilize the country. The current government has 30% of its council on foreign payrolls, the council was choosen on the person' ethnicity and that's it makes its decision in secret, hires only those voting for them, and is essentially an aristocracy backed by USMC steel. Americans won't care since only American lives (and not the minorities that make up 40% of the army) matter and as long as Iraq's oil flows on time. (MORE)

In 1932, Britain granted independence to Iraq. They established Iraq as a Kingdom and later a Republic intentionally to cause religious strife within the country between the three tribes to prevent a rise of power in Iraq.
In which year? Britain has had it's fingers into Persia and her neighbours for centuries, but assuming you mean when the US illegally invaded it last time, the UK (not just Britain) and many other nations illegally invaded it the same year, 2003. So much for "international law".
Iraq is the modern name of Mesopotamia, it lies between Turkey (from the north), Syria & Jordan (from the west), Saudi Arabia (from the south) and Iran (from the east). It is also famous with its two rivers (Tigris & the Euphrates). No. The country in question is Iran.
Well this question needs to be more specific as in American Soldiers, British Soliders.. But I assume you mean American Soldiers and there are about 20,000 left. As of November 25, 2011.
There is not really a game entirely based on Iraq but Modern Warfare 2 has some levels that are in Iraq or Afghanistan.
The Gulf War or Desert Shield/Desert Storm. That one, by the way, wasn't an invasion of Iraq - the only objective was to push the Iraqis out of Kuwait. Once that was achieved, it was pretty much done with.
First find on your phone the + symbol and type that in for the outgoing number. After that you need to type in the country code for Iraq which is 964. Your outbound dial should be +964 (area code) (phone number).
It is called the Iraq War or Occupation of Iraq and also the Second Gulf War. The American troops have recently pulled out on the 19th of August 2010. Much to the relief of many Americans.
The Oil War?? (that was the motive in the first place,cheap oil for the US)
In Iraq prayers are called by the athann which is the call to prayer from the mosque from the imann ,the man who leads prayers.
A citizen of Iraq is an Iraqi. However, most Iraqis inside Iraq identify by Tribe or by Religion as opposed to most Americans inside of America which identify by State, County, or City.
2001 There was Desert Storm - 1990 and 2001. THEY WERE NOT declared wars. They were actions authorized by the UN.
LONG story: First off, in a way they both started it, Americans and the Irani's and Iraqi's, it was a little argument to begin with, something to do with oil, they thought we have been taking there oil supplies illegally and they weren't happy, it is also to do with A LOT of people blaming the Musli…ms for the WTC September 11th 2001 bombings, if you ask me, everyone in this world is a little bit to blame, we use our bloody cars all the time and we need to fuel for them, so we are taking it from places like Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and Pakistan, if you would like a more in-deth answer have a look on google or something as I am not sure if mine is 100% accurate! :) (MORE)
i didnt mean to write no Iraq people imeant to say they should stay together like all Muslim shai do inshallah
No one "discovered" Iraq. People have been living thousands of years. Iraq was once called Persia and Alexander the Great was its king.
1. Some of our milirary soldiers play call of duty in Iraq. 2. A call of duty game that TAKES PLACE in Iraq is COD mw2.
Iraq is not a language. Iraqis speak Arabic and the name for Iraq in Arabic is Al-Iraq which is pronounced Al-ee-raw-k.
There is no such thing as an Iraq-Iraq War. Iran-Iraq War If the question intends to ask about the Iran-Iraq War of1980-1988, several causes of that war include: . Oil-rich regions along the border and access to the PersianGulf. . Religion: Saddam Hussein was a Secular Sunni and RuhollahKhomein…i was a Fundamental (Usuli) Shiite . Government: Ba'athist State vs. Islamic Republic . Nationalism / Power . The two countries had a long history of border disputes, goingright back to when the countries were the kingdoms of Mesopotamia(modern Iraq) and Persia (Iran). . Iraq wanted the new and unstable Iranian government tofall. . Saddam Hussein sought domination of the Middle East. . Radical Islam threatened to spread into Iraq from Iran. . Territorial disputes between Iran & Iraq. . Iraq was aiming to replace Iran as the dominant Persian Gulfstate . Saddam Hussein wanted to annex the Ahwaz Arabs (who were underPersian Occupation in Iran) Iraqi Insurgency If the question intends to ask about the current Iraqi Insurgency,there are a vast number of reasons as to why Iraq boiled into CivilWar when the United States arrived. Saddam Hussein had a verystrong grip on the country and as soon as he was forced to let go,all of the different issues he had held at bay (through veryautocratic and violent means) came to the fore. 1) Sunni-Shiite Conflict: The religiousdifferences between Sunnis and Shiites (both variants of Islam inthe same way that Orthodox and Catholic are variants ofChristianity) are not terribly important for the purposes ofunderstanding this conflict. The religions function as ethnicgroups. The Shiites have been the majority population in LowerMesopotamia for nearly 700 years but have never been in power. Tokeep power over them, the Sunnis repressed and tortured Shiites.The promise of democracy means that the Shiites would have powerfor the first time in Iraq's history and many Sunnis are scared ofShiite retribution, leading them to fight the Shiites to keep themrepressed. 2) Mawali-Arab Conflict: The Mawali (non-ArabMuslims) in Iraq are quite numerous. The most famous group ofMawali in Iraq are the Kurds, but they are not alone. The Kurdshave wanted to pull away from Iraq for a very long time and createan independent Kurdish State because of how horribly Saddam Husseintreated the Kurds. The Arabs, however, want to maintain the Kurdishregions of northern Iraq because they contain a number of OilFields and they do not want to instigate conflict with Turkey,which would oppose any independent Kurdish State. Kurds have alsobeen incredibly supportive of the American Invasion and its respectfor their lifestyle and Peshmerga (the Kurdish Militia). This hasalso engendered hatred from the Arabs on account of the Sentimentof Humiliation. 3) Sentiment of Humiliation: Iraqis see the UnitedStates as a Western occupying power not unlike the Colonial Empiresof Britain and France which previously occupied the region. Theyfeel humiliated that once again, they were unable to properlydefend themselves and are at America's mercy. Some groups (like theKurds and Christians) approve of the American presence, but mostArabs strongly disapprove of a continued American stay in Iraq andbegan to react violently to promote American withdrawal. Al Qaedapicked up on this sentiment and moved into Iraq to further fosterjihadist reactions. 4) Muslim-Christian Conflict: This conflict isrelatively one-sided since the Iraqi Christians have neither thefacilities nor the disposition to violently engage the Iraqi Muslimpopulation, but many Muslims in Iraq mistake Christians in Iraq forbeing in an alliance with the Christian American forces andEuropean forces in general because of their friendship with theconquerors. The affability that Christians in the Arab World showEuropeans is usually respect for the elimination of the DhimmiStatus and the Promotion of Equal Rights as opposed to being anindication of a long-standing political alliance. However, the merenotion of the fifth column brings many Iraqi Muslims to violence. 5) Localized Tribal Conflicts: Iraq is composed ofnumerous well-defined tribes. Each Iraqi (whether Arab or Mawali,Christian or Muslim) knows what tribe he belongs to by birth. Thesetribes regulate everything about a person from who he can talk to,to whom he can do business with, to what his faith must be, andeven where he can live. Numerous different tribes compete overlocal resources and it is not uncommon that the bloodiest conflictsarise between two tribal elders from different tribes squabblingover three or four city blocks. Moqtada al-Sadr was probably themost famous tribal elder so inclined to use violence to solve hisproblems with neighboring tribes and the Americans. (MORE)
The Iraq War was not a winnable war for any party because therewere no "objectives" that either side was trying to meet. SaddamHussein was trying to stay in power and failed. The United Statestried to build a nation with moderate success, but eventually leftthe Iraqis to finish the project. The Iraq…i Militias were trying toforge a new place in the government by military means and failed inthat regard (although many now wield political power on account ofIraqi voting styles). Therefore, it cannot be said that there is a finite day when theIraq War was won. (MORE)
Not really. The land which was part of the Babylonian Empire is mostly contained in modern Iraq now but culturally and territorially they two aren't much alike.
