ABSTRACT
The article discusses the major flaws in the U.S. policy towards Iraq war. The assumption of least resistance from the enemy side due to highly developed military technology of the U.S. was ruled out by the persistent resistance from the Iraqis. The U.S. Army believed that they would be treated as liberators of the people from the old regime, but Iraqis resented the U.S. support. Another unpredictable outcome of the war was political damage to the U.S. due to war casualties.
