What is a preventive war?
A preventative war is a war that is declared with the goal of preventing a much larger war outbreak in the near future. An example would be the Iraq War (if we assume that Iraq did have Weapons of Mass Destruction). Under the concept of preventative war, the Invasion of Iraq would have the goal of preventing a chemical or nuclear war started by Iraq in the near future.
What started the Iraq War of 2003-2011?
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. Please see the Related Question below to see what the causes/reasons for the Iraq War are.
