WASHINGTON, Dec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Sixteen years after the US mobilized to bring democracy to Iraq, and sacrificed the lives of its soldiers to achieve this, Iraq is teetering towards an unknown future.
Have US efforts and lives been given in vain? Is Iraq on the brink of becoming a failed state? Is Iraq's democracy all but dead? Or can this be an opportunity to correct the country's political system? Is there any role for the US in Iraq's future?
To answer these questions, the Future of Iraq Group has invited Mohammed Allawi, an Iraqi politician whose span and relationships reach across the Iraqi political spectrum. Allawi is a former parliamentarian and Minister of Communications in two governments (2006-7, and 2010-12).
The discussion will look at why Iraq is in its current state, what it needs to do to address the fundamental concerns of its people, the state of its democratic elections, a roadmap for the future and the role the US has in Iraq's future.
