Read the following passage then answer the questions below:

The Iraq War, also known as the Second Gulf War or the Occupation of Iraq, is an ongoing military campaign which began on March 20, 2003 with the invasion of Iraq by a multinational force now led by and composed almost entirely of troops from the United States and United Kingdom. Before the war, the U.S. and U.K. claimed that Iraq's alleged possession of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) posed a serious threat to their security and that of their coalition allies. United Nations weapons inspectors found no evidence of WMD. After the invasion, the U.S.-led Iraq Survey Group concluded that Iraq had ended its WMD programs in 1991.Some U.S. officials also accused Saddam Hussein of harboring and supporting Al-Qaeda. On the other hand, some officials said that Iraq's oil reserves played a role in the decision to invade. The invasion led to the quick defeat of the Iraqi military, and the eventual capture and execution of Saddam Hussein. The number of Iraqis killed through 2007 ranges from "a conservative cautious minimum" of more than 85,000 civilians. About 4.7 million Iraqis were uprooted through April 2008 (about 16% of the population of Iraq), two million of whom had fled to neighboring countries fleeing the bad humanitarian situation.
