A year ago and a day or more, elements of the U.S. V Corps, the I Marine Expeditionary Force, and the British 7th Armored Brigade roared out of staging areas in Kuwait and charged into the Iraqi desert. Their target was Baghdad, and their strategic objective was to bring to an end the regime of Saddam al-Hussein. The following posts are reflections on that campaign, with some comment on the occupation that followed. Finally, I'll take a guess as to how the campaign has effected the larger War against Terror.
