As part of its special coverage of the fifth anniversary of the conflict, Al Jazeera spoke to five people who all experienced the conflict and its aftermath.
First, Al Jazeera spoke to two Iraqis – one who remains in the capital, Baghdad and one who has since fled to Europe – and asked them to share their memories of the war, what has happened to them in the five years since, and where they see the future of Iraq.
Both have requested anonymity, fearing reprisals.
Al Jazeera also spoke to a European aid worker who worked for the Red Cross during the US-led invasion, a former US soldier turned anti-war activist, and a US former member of the Coalition Provisional Authority, which governed Iraq in the aftermath of the invasion.
Al Jazeera asked for their experiences of the war and its aftermath from their perspectives, and what they feel the future holds for Iraq and its people.
