George W. Bush


What dictator met the end of his reign during the Bush presidency?

President Bush called for the invasion of Iraq in 2003, which he called a necessary extension of the War on Terror. Bush believed that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was harboring and creating “weapons of mass destruction” and not adhering to United Nations sanctions with regard to weapons and testing of facilities. The invasion, which included a multinational force of troops from the U.S. and other countries, began in March 2003 and led to the fall of Baghdad and Hussein’s regime. The U.S. military led a military campaign of bombing called “Shock and Awe.” The attack ended Hussein’s twenty-four-year-old stranglehold of control in Iraq.
