The Third Gulf War began in 2013 when John McCain, the newly elected Republican President of the United States of America, demanded a new invasion of Iraq after political turmoil had occurred in that country. The outcome of this war was the annexation of Iraq by the U.S.
In January of 2013, John McCain was sworn-in as President of the United States, with David Petraeus as his vice president. By this time, nearly all of the foreign troops in Iraq had been withdrawn. However, in February of that year, a revolution in the Middle East changed everything. Muqtada al-Sadr, supported by neighbouring nations, came to power as dictator in that country.
