When a foreigner looks at Iraq, he/she may only see war, destruction and chaos. It may be true to speak desperate words about country’s future but still its past should be well determined before criticizing today and future. Iraq has been living extraordinary events within the last decades. Tyranny, two Gulf Wars, internal conflicts, ISIS terrorism and Kurdish independence acts. All these scenes negatively affected Iraq’s destiny and its performance on being a strong country.
After Second Gulf War had started in 2003, Iraq fell into pieces. Lack of unifying governments and failure of nationalism ramped up the tension between different partitions of country. This brought the people to the edge of civil war and then, triggered ISIS terrorism. We should be looking into Iraq’s future in energy in the light of these cases.
