Ethnic and sectarian turmoil is endemic to Iraq, and its armed forces have been intertwines with its political affairs since their creation. This study illustrates how the relationship between the military and the political centre in Iraq has evolved, with the military brining about three regime changes in Iraq\'s history before being brought under control by Saddam Hussein, up until the 2003 war.
