Map: @dariyahConflict Overview:
Since the Gulf War in 1991, the West has maintained a containment policy over Iraq to ensure it could not operate nefariously against its neighbours or domestic groups, like the Kurds. In this capacity, UN weapon inspectors have visited Iraq multiple times to ensure chemical and biological agents were no longer in use. Alarmingly, the Iraqi government had expelled these inspectors. After a threat of war by the UN, Saddam allowed inspectores back. Although the inspectors have recovered little evidence of WMD’s, it has become clear that Saddam is too dangerous to be left in charge of the country.Recent Events:
Yesterday coalition forces invaded Iraq from Kuwait. The British objective is Basrah, just north of Kuwait. To envelop the city from the west, we have to cut through a portion of desert and wetland. In this wetland, the Iraqis have erected large amounts of minor defensive positions, including a forward HQ at Kalaat. Furthermore, enemy AA has been disrupting our air strikes in the area; three ZSU-23-4’s have been shrewdly avoiding our SEAD and have damaged multiple aircraft. Lastly, reconnaissance has spotted a heavy Iraqi entrenchment at Bir Al Huffay, which due to civilian presence, can not be bombed.Objectives:
