The Iraq War started when the United States invaded Iraq on

March 20, 2003. The United States invasion was predicated on the

belief that Iraq was in possession of "weapons of mass

destruction", in contravention of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation

Treaty and the Treaties following the Persian Gulf War of

1990-1991. However, no such weapons were ever discovered.

causes/reasons for the Iraq War are.
