Iraq: Tough Times Ahead

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Iraq, War & Conflict

Iraqi blogger Omar gives us an overview [1] of the political situation in Iraq. He admits that it is a rough time but insists that he will not panic. “The political process in Iraq has reached another very critical and important stage. This is the time that will decide if Iraq will emerge as a country that can sustain itself and where groups of people-while have many differences-can share this nation and coexist peacefully.
There's no doubt that this is going to be a difficult journey until key requirements to reconciliation, especially the oil distribution law and the Justice and Accountability law (which will replace the debaathification law) see the light. Many concessions will have to be made by every one of the major constituents of this country before the final compromise is reached,” he notes.
