The US government launched a military invasion of Iraq in 2003, claiming that Saddam’s government had weapons of mass destruction. Despite the fall of Saddam’s government, the United States has not withdrawn its troops. This has created a strong anti-US sentiment among the Iraqi people. Due to this, there are occasional rocket attacks on various US installations in Iraq.
