Iraq is a country located in the Middle East, bordering Iran and Kuwait.

History Edit

Iraq was ruled by Saddam Hussein, who led the Baathist party. On August 1990, Iraq invaded oil rich Kuwait, triggering the Gulf War where future President Thomas Whitmore served in. Iraqi forces were driven out of Kuwait during Operation Desert Storm in February 1991 and a UN no-fly zone was established on the nation.

During the War of 1996, a City Destroyer was first spotted by a group of nomads traveling over the northern Iraqi deserts and subsequently destroying Baghdad. During the July 4th counterattack, Iraqi Air Force pilots worked together with Syrian, Jordanian, Egyptian, Israeli and British pilots, intercepted a City Destroyer from destroying Mecca.[1]
