One subject students will examine in GCSE History is the situation in Iraq, from 1991 up to the present day.
In 1991 a UN approved coalition of states used a land invasion to remove Iraqi forces from neighbouring Kuwait. The Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein remained, however, in power, until 2003 when President George Bush of the United States led a smaller coalition that removed him from power. The situation in Iraq has been unstable since then up to the present day.
