Iraq - 07/58- The Hashemite monarchy fell - Casim takes control, he is quite anti-West - Military coups have played very large roles with regards to the instability of the region. o The coups that have taken place only reinforce the idea that is a population is displeased, violence helps. - In 1962- Iraq invades Kuwait, the British step in and stop the progression. - When the Kurds had uprisings in the 60’s, the repercussions against these uprisings were extremely brutal. - There were a number of assassination/coup attempts on Casim, which made him rule harshly against the Baathist party. o Once the baathists took power, Saddam became the second man in power. He began to tactically consolidate power, striking deals with a number of people, even the Shah of Iran. - Why did Iran and Iraq go to War? o Water rights, border disputes, the Shah’s support of the Kurds and Shiites. Saddam himself also played a role in the instigation of the Iran- Iraq war.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
