The first Gulf War, in 1991, was caused when Iraq invaded Kuwait.

The second Iraq war, in 2003, was intended to remove Saddam Hussein from power and came in the wake of the defeat of the Taliban in Afghanistan.

There was a war that began in Iraq in 1980, but the war began with an invasion of Iran, not Iraq. That war is the Iran-Iraq War and lasted from 1980-1988.

The Iraq War began in 2003 and ended in 2011. The Insurgency in Iraq began in 2005 and continues to this day. (The difference in terminology is that the Iraq War was foreign powers fighting in Iraq to secure the country and the Insurgency is the Iraqi Government fighting in Iraq to secure the country.

People who opposed the Iraq War argued that Iraq did not pose an immediate or serious threat to the United States, and that there was little or no justification for the war. The war began in 2003.

The Iraq War began in a number of cities in Iraq when the United States began to launch cruise missiles from a number of aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf. The actual land battle began at the Iraqi-Kuwaiti border when American land forces crossed from Kuwait into Iraq.
