ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the situation of Iraq after the war. He claims that nearly four years after the Iraq War, it has become increasingly clear that the notion of a successful outcome requires major revision. He claims that it is not enough to state that Saddam Hussein was deposed and that success already has been achieved. He argues that the bloodshed, corruption, economic stagnation and political instability that were left in Iraq are hardly the indicators of a smashing operational success.
