Sunni Arab Opposition 30.9.2004
This paper gives an overview of the insurgency faced by coalition forces in the Sunni Arab areas of Iraq. It breaks down the who insurgents are, their motivations, the threat they posed and their distribution throughout Iraq.
This source is valuable to students as it demonstrates how the coalition recognised and evaluated the threat of insurgent groups. Moreover, it gives an in-depth view into opposition to the new, coalition implemented, regime and provides a map to help our understanding of the geography of Iraq and the distribution of ethnic groups during the invasion.
