The 2003 invasion of Iraq was officially dubbed Operation Iraqi Freedom, and followed by an interminable U.S. Occupation of Iraq. As a propaganda tool of its political perpetrators, this pair of activities has been promoted as "War on Iraq" followed by "War in Iraq".

"The invasion of Iraq was a bandit act, an act of blatant state terrorism, demonstrating absolute contempt for the concept of international law. The invasion was an arbitrary military action inspired by a series of lies upon lies and gross manipulation of the media and therefore of the public; an act intended to consolidate American military and economic control of the Middle East masquerading - as a last resort - all other justifications having failed to justify themselves - as liberation. A formidable assertion of military force responsible for the death and mutilation of thousands and thousands of innocent people." [1] -- Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter

"We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it 'bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East'."
