HISTORY
Conflicts over the UN disarmament inspections set out in the ceasefire conditions (interrupted 1998–2002) and the Iraqi government’s compliance with no-fly zones repeatedly triggered serious crises and growing tensions, particularly with the USA (numerous American-British air strikes against Iraqi positions and facilities). In the context of American anti-terrorism policy after 2001, the conflict with the United States, which was seeking regime change in Iraq, intensified drastically. The gun control resolutions passed by the UN Security Council (UN Resolution 1441) were accepted by the Iraqi government at the end of 2002, but there were doubts that they would be fully implemented. In March 2003, the US and its allies attacked Iraq without a mandate from the UN (Gulf War  3) and ousted Saddam Hussain’s regime in the course of the war. The reason for the attack was the allegedly stored weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and connections to the al-Qaeda terrorist network. In 2004, the US government had to admit that it had not had any evidence for any of the allegations. On June 30, 2004, Saddam Husain was handed over to the Iraqi authorities and executed in 2006. Overshadowed by the ongoing escalation of violence, the National Assembly drafted a new constitution, which was approved in a referendum on October 15, 2005 with more than 78% of the votes became; the constitution was largely rejected by the Sunni part of the population. After the parliamentary elections in December 2005, Nuri al-Maliki (* 1950; Shiite Dawa party) as the new prime minister, a government of “national unity” (participation of representatives of most parliamentary groups) was formed and confirmed by parliament. In 2011, the last American and British troops left the country, which was still being shaken by numerous terrorist attacks. The conflict between Sunnis and Shiites escalated into acts of violence. The terrorist organization, now operating under the name Islamic State in Iraq and (Greater) Syria (ISIS) in the Syrian civil war and in large parts of Iraq, has increasingly endangered the position of the Maliki government since the end of 2013. which was still shaken by numerous terrorist attacks.
