RAYYAN DABBOUS: Readers of newspapers in 2017 might not remember a time
in which they haven’t read about an ongoing war in Iraq – the Iran-Iraq
war persisted throughout the 80s, Saddam
Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait, the Gulf War, and ongoing US bombings
reigned throughout the 90s, and the US intervention and the Iraqi civil
war that followed ran throughout the first decade of the new millennia.
