The two long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have now come to an end, at least insofar as the involvement of Western troops is concerned.

By contrast, many Americans and most international observers viewed Iraq as a war of choice, the justification of which, its conduct and consequences, remain matters of intense controversy.
