  • EndWar

    Coalition units advancing on the Iraqi lines

    January 20: Protest against the war spring up in some places across America but it is not rampant. The Iraqi Army receives an extra ration and is visited by Mohamed Omar. The Coalition launches another offensive one hour after Omar left. It becomes another painfully bloody battle as SML rockets streak through the air and M1A1 rounds and T-87 rounds burst across the sky like fireworks, only deadly. The Coalition begins to make some headway and continues fighting in the night. They are still evenly matched as the USAF is unable to get through the SAM shield and the M1A1 and T-87 are practically identical. By morning the battle has turned into a stalemate.
  • January 21: The Americans attempt to go around the Iraqi Army and surround them but Saddam's forces are along the entire border and soon both sides are devastated by the fighting in the hot desert sands.

The measure is approved by Saddam and Omar and within two hours all SAM sights are fully staffed.
  • February 13: After many weeks of heavy stationary fighting the Iraqi Army launches a chemical missile mixed with an aerosol acid. The result is the gas masks of the Coalition being burned through and killing many of the soldiers. Almost 1500 died from the attack.
  • February 14: The United States uses its chemical weapons for the first time in its history in retaliation for the Iraqi chemical-acid attack. The chemical weapons are a major surprise to the Iraqis who lose almost 3200 to the gas as they hadn't thought the US would use their chemical weapons.

The IQAF defenses are over whelmed by the sheer number of the planes but succeeds in shooting down almost 1000 before they reach Baghdad. The USAF planes then open up on the city and hundreds of bombs begin to fall on Iraq. Within one hour the city is devastated and the planes continue into bases in Turkey. During the bombing Saddam's bunker was hit several times and he was found dead in his bunker. Mohamed Omar is sworn in as the President of Iraq and Saddam is buried as a national hero in Mosul.
  • April 8: Mohamed Omar proclaims to the world that he will continue Saddam's final battle and drive the "American scum from Arab lands.".

The two armies are in a massive fight that carries over into the next day.
  • April 9: The fighting continues as the USAF provides close air support while the Iraqi Army launches precision missiles at the lines in front of their troops. The fighting soon becomes vicious hand to hand combat with such brutality that had not been seen since the Civil War. Very quickly the dead were piling up and soon the battle's deaths exceeded 50,000 with many more dying or wounded.
  • April 10: The Iraqi Army and the Coalition continue to fight and soon public support for the war begins to fall at a more dramatic rate. The Iraqi Army attempts to flank the Coalition but its units in the West are stopped by heavy Coalition resistance and are unable to advance any farther. In the Kuwait Theater the battle is still being vigorously fought with both sides now tiring very quickly.
  • April 11: The USMC lands once more in Kuwait City and are able to take and hold most of the city. The IQAF is able to break through USAF detection as they are already used up mostly in the main battle to the south. The IQAF bombs the USMC and is able to pin them in the city but is unable to drive them into the sea. The Iraqi Army continues to push against the Coalition and is now experiencing heavy fatigue. The IQAF successfully sinks the USS Ranger in the Persian Gulf and seriously damages the USS Nimitz forcing her to go to Qatar for repairs.
  • April 12: The IQAF shoots down the USAF fighters whom are trying to relieve the USMC in Kuwait City. The IQAF then sends in the SU-25s into Kuwait City and continues to bombard the USMC. Within 12 hours the USMC is seriously in trouble with most of its ammo depleted and all support being tied up else where or destroyed. The USAF performs close air support for the war in the far west of the country but is forced to use their resources sparingly as to not be devastated by the IQAF air-defenses. The main battle in the south still rages on as both armies are now feeling the full force of fatigue as the Iraqi Army and the Coalition uses tactical chemical weapons. The death toll climbs to 100,000.
  • April 13: The Iraqi Army decides that the troops are unable to continue on at an acceptable pace and begins to move in conscripted units while pulling in the battle weary units. The Coalition troops begin to fall back as the fresh Iraqi units begin to over power them. The USAF uses another mass attack but this one is almost entirely cut down by the IQAF defenses with the IQAF fighters finishing off what ever was left from the SAMs. The USMC in Kuwait City are finally forced to surrender. They are transported to a POW camp deep in the Iraqi desert.
  • April 14: The Coalition units in the Kuwait Front launch a counter-assault that finally halts the mostly inexperienced and green troops of the Iraqis. But the sheer number and freshness of the troops are able to stop the Coalition from pushing into Kuwait proper. The USMC POWs finally make it to the POW camp Syrian Desert. The USAF attempts to destroy the Syrian Desert POW camp but are unable to make it past the IQAF air-defenses. Large protest against the war occur in Florida State University, the National Guard is called in to make sure the protest do not turn violent.

    Iraqi Army and the Coalition begins to shell on another once more and it seems all is back to the April 6th conditions.
  • April 20: Another protest occurs in the University of Central Florida and in Washington State University. The Coalition stops using chemical weapons against the Iraqis for the said reason of "not wishing to continue in the bloody and now worthless practice" but the real reason is that the chemical weapons store has fallen to only 12 chemical shells. The Iraqis continue to use chemical weapons.
  • April 21: Mohamed Omar visits the front once more and boosts the morale of the troops. The old soldiers of the Battle of Ad Dibdibah return to the front and many of the green soldiers are sent back into Kuwait to maintain order and to stay as reserves.

  • May 20: The USAF and the IQAF clash over Jordan when the USAF violated Jordanian air space at which point they would've been able to sweep into Iraq but after a three hour long battle over Jordan the USAF won a Pyrrhic victory. The USAF was able to strike deep into Iraq, until the IQAF brought up the SAM missiles and downed most of the USAF and the rest having to retreat into Turkey.
  • May 21: Mohamed Omar speaks out against the USAF going into Jordanian air space and urges Jordan to "... help fight the Coalition heathens and traitors." He then boards a train and heads to Jordan where he meets with the King of Jordan.

  • May 28: Mohamed Omar begins the construction of electronic plants in Jordan and weapon factories as well. Jordanian troops nick-name the T-87 the Lion of Babylon.
  • May 29: The IQAF is confronted with electronic warfare against their systems as AWAC planes begin to try to jam their radar. They successfully bring down the SAM radars for three hours in which the USAF exploits their weakness and flies into Baghdad and Mosul and other places and begin to drop bombs on them.

  • September 22: The USAF is finally able to break the IQAF defences as most of the SAMs were moved deeper into the country to avoid capture. They wreak havoc on the Iraqi Army and they suddenly break much to Mohamed Omar's dismay. The Spetsnaz troops fight to the death against the Americans and over 24,000 are dead by the end of the day.
  • September 23: The IQAF begins launching their own fighters to combat the USAF's. The air battle becomes the most intense air battle in history topping the Battle of Britain. The Coalition forces begin to enter the outskirts of Kuwait City. The Iraqi Army regroups and begins a fierce resistance against the Americans.

President Bush says that if he does nuclear retaliation will be the only option. Mohamed Omar only responds that if they are not withdrawn from Kuwait in 24 hours they will be destroyed. He then cuts the transmission. Bush and meets with his top Generals who all say that if they are serious they must also be. They agree not to withdraw troops but to attack even more vigorously.
  • September 25: The Coalition troops finally capture Kuwait City. The USAF though continues to battle the IQAF in the sky. Fierce fighting claims 12,000 more lives on both sides.

The result is total devastation of the Coalition troops with almost 90% killed with the rest being in the other fronts in the west. The United States launches two nuclear missiles at Baghdad and Basra. The cities are instantly destroyed with next to no of the city remaining. The world is shocked by the nuclear blasts. But soon it becomes apparent that this could spiral out of control the world calls for peace talks.

Peace, but at what cost?

  • September 26: The Coalition and Iraqi leaders meet in Paris to discuss peace. The two forces agree that the
