that is what I can share is most recent reads only .

Point One 

Notes that I found Interesting 

The war exposed a poorly equipped medical system to provide long-term medical care to a large number of wounded warriors.

That the strategy of “shock and awe”, and the early disposal of the Iraqi leadership through missile strikes, would be enough to dismantle the Iraqi regime, surrender its army, and the uprising of the Iraqi people, who will receive the coalition forces of those who want or “grabbers” with flowers and welcome, but the surprises of the war have so far involved the fall of those Assumptions one by one.

with reservation on this opinions 

Military analyst Munther Suleiman sees a number of loopholes in the original scenario that the US political and military leadership is currently working on:

First, the delay in the arrival of a sufficient number of American forces in northern Iraq to open a northern front to advance towards Baghdad from the north, due to Turkey’s refusal to deploy American forces from its territory.

Second, the lack of sufficient forces in the field to protect the long supply lines from Kuwait to the outskirts of Baghdad, especially since each American tank consumes three gallons of gasoline per mile, and thus needs more than eight hundred gallons to reach Baghdad.

Third, the reduced capabilities of attack helicopters with regard to providing close support to the American forces, as they come under fire from the weapons of Iraqi citizens, Saddam Fedayeen, and Iraqi forces deployed in the south.

Fourth, the failure of the strategy of rapid launch towards Baghdad without the need to secure the southern cities due to the guerrilla war that the military movements heading towards the north were subjected to, and the lack of mobile forces to deal with them

Mueller explained that there is an extensive study of the US military confirms that “the vast majority of decisions in the Iraq war were made by highly intelligent, highly seasoned leaders.” Nevertheless, the study concludes that the “failure to achieve our strategic goals” stems from thinking that has “methodological shortcomings,” the most prominent of which is that “American leaders seemed to believe that other countries in the region would not react.”

To add to the emphasis, shortly after the invasion of Iraq, military advisor Richard Perle suggested the need to deliver a succinct message to other hostile regimes in the region: “It’s your turn.” It thus became clear that it was in the interests of Iran and North Korea to work closely together, providing protection to Shiite friends in Iraq, to ​​make the American presence there extremely miserable.
On the other hand, North Korea, under threat, withdrew from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and devoted its efforts to obtaining nuclear weapons to deter a US attack.
