ABSTRACT
The article presents an essay discussing the implication of Operation Iraqi Freedom to future urban operations. According to the author, the unpreparedness of the U.S. military operation in dealing with the hostile terrain of Iraq poses an opportunity for improvement and preparedness on future urban operations. Moreover, the author stresses on the need to revise the doctrine on urban operation that will give focus on differing terrain conditions of areas of warfare.
