Abstract:Defeat of his conventional forces imminent, Saddam Hussein set loose the “dogs of war” distributing weapons, ammunition and explosives amongst the population to fuel an insurgency war. Unprepared for ensuing violence the humanitarian assistance community were shocked into 21st century realities of insurgency war. Witnessing fifteen months of escalating warfare, the author reflects on the successes and failures of humanitarian assistance in Iraq. Can humanitarian assistance succeed during insurgency war? Rules for humanitarian assistance changed, attacked by insurgents, the United Nations lead and exodus of humanitarian assistance organizations out of Iraq. Yet, some organizations stayed adapting to worsening conditions finding alternative methods to deliver humanitarian assistance. Waiting until conflicts end is not the answer for vulnerable populations. This case study highlights the mine action sectors experience demonstrating that operations can succeed during insurgency war. Contributing practical lessons, this study serves as guidance for humanitarian assistance practitioners under insurgency war conditions.
