*Embedded journalism could be applied to many historical interactions between journalists and military personnel, it 1st came to be used in the media coverage of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The U.S Military responded to pressure from the country's news media who were disappointed by the level of access geranted during the 1991 Gulf War and in the 2001 U.S. invasion of Afganistan. The Gulf War was one of the biggest wars in history, many were killed and many lost their homes.
