10 mistakes of iraq war
Jared Sperli stashed this in war
Stashed in: Middle East
I think all the other mistakes are minor and pale by comparison to this one; Maybe 10. as a distant second as there truly wasn't widespread coalition support. Either way, "they'll be studying this one for years".
7. The Coalition Provisional Authority, under the leadership of L. Paul Bremer III, dismantled the Iraqi Army, and the highest level of the Baath Party. Under Saddam Hussein, the highest ranks could only belong to Baath Party members, so we lost some of the most experienced personnel that were so vital in putting Iraq back together again.
10. President George W. Bush’s coalition of the willing. The fact is, those countries had less than 50 people in there. There really was not a coalition other than the United Kingdom.
