Article: “Corruption, bureaucracy and armed practices threaten 157 Iraqi projects at the donor conference”
Parliament just passed a law protecting those in government from prosecution for corruption, their timing couldn’t have been worse. I realize the west doesn’t want to leave Iraq vulnerable to Iran’s influence, but at this point, Iraq is in Iran’s back pocket, losing them to Iran has already happened.
These folks can’t even agree on a 2018 budget, how can they expect the world to donate billions when they can’t even balance their own checkbook? The world has stood up and done everything it can to help this country…
These guys have got to put on their big boy pants and act like they care about the country and its citizens, if they don’t, the world won’t. IMO.
