Abstract:

This study is an examination of the Iraqi defeat of Iran in the 8- year-long Iran-Iraq War and the implications of that outcome on future U.S. Middle East Policy. It concludes that Iraqs achievement in forcing Iran to accept a truce represents an authentic victory attained because the Iraqis planned for and successfully executed complicated, large-scale military operations and shrewdly managed their resources. Iraq appears to have become a formidable military power. Iraq, Iran, Iran-Iraq War, Middle East.
