    Despite claims that ISIL has been wiped out, they still exist in Iraq and are sending replacements into Syria.

    Our payback for precipitously removing our troops from Iraq.

    December 21, 2018: The U.S. granted Iraq a 90 day extension on the original 45 day exemption on some Iranian sanctions. Iraq made a case that they needed an exemption to some of the Iran sanctions because otherwise the Iraqi economy would suffer. This was especially true with Iraqi dependence on Iran for electricity and natural gas imports.

    In the south (Basra) for the second week in a row police used bullets as well as teargas to try and disperse continued weekly demonstrations against the local government (which continues to be too corrupt and ineffective for most people living in the area). The demonstrations have been going on since July.
