Is there hope for Iraq with Tawfiq Allawi? Wednesday, 05 February 2020 14:16

Iraq’s divided political parties have finally picked a consensus candidate — Tawfiq Allawi — to be the new prime minister. The nation has been in a political crisis since street protests forced the fall of the government of his predecessor, Adel Abdul Mahdi, and the nation’s parliament missed a constitutional deadline in picking a successor.  That has deepened the governmental crisis. Mr. Allawi is a compromise candidate, but he is saying the right things. He has promised to clean up the corruption…

Iraq Heads Toward Freedom and Independence Sunday, 02 February 2020 05:10

For the last four months, the Iraqi people have continued their struggle toward freedom from the Iran-backed governing system that brought nothing for Iraqis except corruption, bloodshed, and sectarianism. Iraq's scene experienced a verity of ebbs and flows over this period. The death of Qassem Soleimani is one of the significant landmarks. The Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei lost his right hand for preserving the regime’s “strategic depth” with the death of the commander of the Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force…
Young Iraqis have spent four months in the streets, calling for an end to a corrupt political system that has largely failed them. In recent months, security forces have killed more than 500 protesters and thousands have been wounded.  On Jan. 24, the populist Shia cleric Moqtada al-Sadr announced he would cease support for the protests against Iraq’s ruling elites, which led some of his followers to withdraw from Tahrir Square, the center of the protest movement in Baghdad. Given that the Sadrists…
While popular protests in Iraq and Lebanon have been clearly directed at corruption and worsening economic conditions, there is another factor that should not be ignored — widespread frustration with the role played by Iran and its allied militias in both countries. This Lebanese and Iraqi concern with Iran’s use of sectarian groups to pursue its regional ambitions is a new development. In my 2013 book, Looking at Iran, I noted the rise and fall of Iran in Arab public…

The Iraqi Protests Continue Intensively Saturday, 25 January 2020 04:34

The heroic uprising of the people of Iraq continues unabated in its fourth month, despite the efforts and conspiracies of mercenaries of Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei in the country. The highlight of this uprising is the growing acceptance of various sections of the Iraqi people. This welcome is undoubtedly due to the correct policy and the viewpoints of this movement. This is the missing link that has stalled earlier uprisings in the country. Protests in Iraq peaked again on…
On 3rd January, the United States launched a drone attack in Iraq, killing Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, an Iraqi militia leader. These two targets have created unquantifiable mayhem and their deaths are mourned only by the cruel, brutal and terrorist mullahs. Qassem Soleimani was the leader of the extra-territorial branch of the notorious Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and has been described as Iran’s top terrorist. He was more in control of the country’s foreign policy…
DIWANIYAH, Iraq - Chants demanding regime change have echoed across Iraq for weeks but what first brought demonstrators onto the street was the paradoxical poverty of one of the world’s most oil-rich countries. Coupled with the resentment of dire living conditions is the distrust of politicians whom they accuse of failing to root out rampant corruption that denies them jobs and public services. In the southern protest hotspot of Diwaniyah, one of the poorest agricultural areas in the country, Umm…
President Trump has tweeted support for the thousands of protestors who have already been killed or imprisoned. His message was simple, “DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTORS.” This comes on the back end as millions of Iraqis gathered in Tahrir Square to protest Iran and the non-binding parliamentary vote. We all wait with bated breath to see what sort of violence they will be met with by PMF and pro-Iranian militias paid to disrupt the protestors. Just yesterday Iraqi journalist Ahmed…
The protests in Iran in the past four days directly targeted the regime's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. Angry about the mullahs' criminal obfuscation regarding the IRGC's downing of a passenger plane, protesters called for change of the entire regime. Chants of "Death to Khamenei" and "Death to the oppressor, whether the Shah or the [supreme] leader," showed that Iran wants to be liberated from tyranny once and for all. In scores of videos, young protesters and especially women, tore down…
Washington has spent more than two decades fighting a global war against extremists, but has been remarkably passive in response to terrorist attacks conducted by Iran’s theocratic regime and its network of Shia proxy forces. But that may all have changed last week, when US President Donald Trump ordered the airstrike that killed Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the IRGC - Quds Force and the butcher of Syria. Soleimani left this world together with Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, his Iraqi friend and…
WASHINGTON – When President Donald Trump tweeted "All is Well!" Tuesday after Iran's missile attack on two U.S. air bases in Iraq, the danger of imminent war seemed to have passed. No casualties. It was a warning shot, said a U.S. official after dawn broke Wednesday in the desert. Many outside national security experts agreed, saying they believed Iran took deliberate steps to avoid American casualties. And in a televised address, Trump spoke of "minimal damage" and "Iran standing down" in a relatively restrained retaliation for the U.S. drone strike…
