Economist: Abadi better will lead Iraq to stability

In the policy of April 7, 2018 Comments on Economist: the best Abbadi will lead Iraq to stability

BAGHDAD (Reuters) –

The situation in Iraq is different today under Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi four years ago, when an organization was standing at the gates of Baghdad and raising its black flag over many Iraqi cities. Today, Dahesh and the number of civilians killed every month in armed confrontations have lost a small percentage of the number in 2014, oil production is abundant and the state’s treasury is full of its revenues.

They are wrong

According to Economist, the influence of foreign powers, especially Iran and the United States, has declined, “after Iraqi politicians learned how to play against each other.” Within weeks, parliamentary elections will be held.

This improvement in the situation in Iraq tempts some to say that the US invasion 15 years ago was justified, but they are wrong. Many of the blood was shed during those years, in Iraq and elsewhere after the occupation unleashed a wave of violence, and then Iraqi politicians contributed their share in further violence by fueling sectarian divisions.

“They have to learn from these mistakes, otherwise they will waste the moment that is very optimistic,” says Economist.

Iraq looks like it was in 2010, but now it is better that year, which was also a parliamentary election, shortly after the defeat of al Qaeda with the decisive contribution of Sunni Awakening fighters. But after Barack Obama’s withdrawal in 2011, Economist says that then Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki “ruled the Sunnis out of the security services and cut money on the Kurds and jailed Iraqis who were complaining” of his policies.

The report describes current Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi as “better,” indicating that he is popular among the Sunnis, although he is Shiite, and that he now has a chance to unify the country. The report suggests that Abadi should integrate the popular crowd, which fought with the regular forces, and pay the salaries of its fighters directly and not from the path of their leaders to be loyal to the state.

Adults can be referred to retirement, enrolling young people in universities and those who have had jobs returning to their jobs.

The report stresses that Abbadi worked on the need to “exclude sectarianism from politics,” criticizing the system of quotas and corrupts, “which led to corruption and stagnation instead of unity, where appointments on the basis of sectarian and ethnic affiliation instead of merit.
