Key Aspects of the Invasion 31.03.2003
This document focuses on two key aspects of the invasion: the financing of reconstructing Iraq post-invasion and the communication methods and networks of the coalition. Both are vital to the apparent success of the invasion; however, the detailed planning of communications seems late considering this document was sent following the initial entry of troops into Iraq.
The financial planning within this document and the pressure it details placing on Kofi Annan, head of the UN, is indictive to students of how processes like post-intervention funding take place. Moreover, the detailed nature of communications planning demonstrates how through controlling the narrative the coalition can influence attitudes and media worldwide.
