Merger[edit]

This page is an unnecessary fork of Iraq War order of battle and should be merged there (where most of the content came from). Is there any disagreement with this? Buckshot06(prof) 10:02, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

I agree with this merge. The Iraq War OOB article isn't particularly long, and there seems to be no reason to have articles on what's basically the same topic - especially as the articles cover a current event and require ongoing maintenance to remain up to date and accurate. Nick Dowling (talk) 10:04, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
Pardon my ignorance, but the article dos not say US Order of Battle in Iraq. Moreover the existing Order of Battle covers multinational forces. Besides that every other Order of Battle article is usually associated with the article that offers a bit more, like planning, execution and methods used in the war, campaigns and operations and not just bare bone unit summary. Is there such an article for the US military? I had a look and was surprised not to find one.--mrg3105 (comms) ♠♣ 10:33, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
Iraq War covers all that, and as it stands this article is nothing but an OOB, and isn't a de-facto Military history of the United States during the Iraq War or similar. Nick Dowling (talk) 10:44, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
This article is meant to cover general issues related to personnel and equipment. it is not meant to be merely a statistical overview. thus, this article's scope and focus do differ from those of other existing articles.
This article's topic is notable, and its approach is properly encylopedic. there is every reason to provide an encyclopedic overview of the numerous, significant impacts on US military personnel, equipment and procedures, resulting from the Iraq War. --Steve, Sm8900 (talk) 03:43, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
The article Iraq War is very general, and an article on the US military specifically is warranted. Given the war is not over yet, naming the article Military history of the United States during the Iraq War is probably premature since the contents would be dynamic due to ongoing operations.
I added the sections from OOB to simply start the article off rather then having it dangle with empty sections. Much rather do that then add expand templates. Its a bit more effort, but looks better to the reader.
I actually think that every conflict article should come in "threes": articles named [[Chronology of the battle conflict XYZ]] (allowing reader to follow cause and effect), [[Course of the battle conflict XYZ]] (explaining purpose, doctrine, methods, and equipment), and XYZ order of battle in ____ conflict (detailing who was in it)--mrg3105 (comms) ♠♣ 04:06, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
I agree very much with your post above. I revised your comments slightly, chaging the word "battle" to conflict, above, as I think that perhaps this might be what you meant? I wanted to ask, do i have your permission to make this edit? if not, let me know and I will change it back.
Also you're right about three articles, but the hypothetical article named "Course of the conflict" would really be simply titled "The Conflict" meaning the main article for any hypothetical conflict. By the way, while we're on the topc, major or global wars entries here do generally have another article on the causes of those conflicts. thanks. --Steve, Sm8900 (talk) 13:14, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
