Historical Note

Iraq 2003 commenced on 19 March 2003 following attempts by the United States to persuade the United Nations to authorise the use of military force to disarm Iraq and remove Iraqi President Saddam Hussein from power.

US President George Bush claimed that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction and posed a significant threat to world security through links with terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda. The United Nations did not agree as investigations in Iraq by the Security Council were reporting very little in the way of this class of weapons. On 17 March 2003, Bush gave Hussein and his sons 48 hours to leave Iraq or face invasion. The United States had the support of 35 countries with Britain, Australia and Poland providing troops and other members of the Coalition providing assistance ranging from financial support to military equipment and intelligence. Australia contributed over a thousand service personnel under Operation Falconer.

In Australia, there was vigorous debate over the rights and wrongs of going to war with Iraq. Those opposed to invading Iraq reminded people of the human suffering which war inevitably brings, and highlighted the United Nations' opposition to using force against Iraq. Proponents of the war argued that its costs would be outweighed by the benefits of removing Saddam Hussein's brutal regime, while also raising the fear that Iraq might still have weapons of mass destruction.

It took six weeks for Coalition forces to remove Saddam Hussein from power and achieve the goal of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Major combat operations in Iraq were declared to be finished by the Pentagon on 14 April 2003. Saddam Hussein was captured two weeks before Christmas 2003 in Operation Red Dawn. After a long trial he was found guilty of crimes against humanity and was sentenced to death. He was executed on 30 December 2006. With his removal from office, however, the region was by no means secure.

Australian forces remained in Iraq under Operation Catalyst to provide continued protection and security, including the prevention of terrorism, and to support the Iraqi political transition and efforts in reconstruction. The bulk of the Australian military presence in Iraq was withdrawn in July 2009. As of 2010, around eighty personnel remain deployed in Iraq under Operation Kruger, in which they contribute to the provision of security and support for the Australian embassy and its staff in Iraq. Other personnel are deployed under Operation Riverbank, the ADF's contribution to the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).
