Fears have been expressed that the long-term cost of war will be extremely serious for the Iraqi people, as decades of war, international sanctions and the actions of its regime have crippled the country's infrastructure, leaving people extremely vulnerable. Of serious concern as well is the fact that the immediate human costs of military action are likely to include civilian casualties, possible displacement of people and the breakdown of state functions.
