The Americans won and the Iraqis retreated back to their homeland to plot a different way to destroy the Americans. After the war the Americans shot missiles at the base of the Iraqis to show they wouldn't want to mess with them.

Unfortunately, the above answer is a misconception as the Iraqis were unconnected to any attempts to destroy America (9/11 has no connection to Iraq). The Iraq War was an American Invasion of the Iraqi Regime that was believed to have had weapons of mass destruction. Toppling the government occurred early in the War and the majority of the fighting was between guerrillas and the United States Army during the Occupation and Nation-Building Phases. Finally, in 2011 the United States affirmed that Iraq is ready to maintain its own defense and left the country.
