Iraq is a Middle Eastern country and a member of the United Nations.
Iraq is located on most of what was once Mesopotamia.
The United States and the United Kingdom went to war with Iraq in 1990 and 1991 when the latter invaded and briefly occupied neighboring Kuwait. This conflict was known as the Persian Gulf War (or simply "Gulf War" for short). There's a strong possibility the Iraqis used the black oil from Tunguska as a biological weapon against U.S.-led forces during the 1991 Gulf War.
In 1994, an Iraqi Air Force fighter jet shot down near the Turkish border a UFO of alien origin. A special division of the U.S. military was sent into Iraq to retrieve the wreckage and E.B.E. occupant. (TXF: "E.B.E.")
During the 2000s and early 2010s, the U.S. and its allies fought a war in Iraq, initially against Saddam Hussein's regime and later against a terrorist insurgency. The conflict became known as the Iraq War. (TXF: "Babylon")
