What ENGVAR is this article written in?[edit]

Spellings seem to be all over the map, with "organise" and "organize" both visible. The date formats in the article text seem to be by-and-large day-month-year, but this is not the case for the refs. Does the fact that the invasion was led by the U.S. mean WP:TIES applies? I'm not even sure one way or the other. Hijiri 88 (やや) 14:41, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Iraq War v Iraq Invasion[edit]

CityOfSilver I got that from the source too, (I had to translate it, nein sprechen der Danish), but the article is about the Iraq War, not just the invasion. So shouldn't Danish forces be listed, if in the second part rather than the first? L3X1 (distant write) 14:59, 25 April 2017 (UTC)

@L3X1: I saw that Denmark was listed under a heading reading "Invasion phase" and the dates didn't add up. Now that I think about it, I don't see a problem with restoring the text I removed under the "Post-invasion" heading. CityOfSilver 15:39, 25 April 2017 (UTC)
