The New York Times published an opinion piece on Tuesday on ways to "save Iraq" in the wake of tens of thousands of citizens in unprecedented demonstrations in Baghdad and southern cities to protest against corruption, unemployment and lack of basic services, which was confronted by an unprecedented crackdown Thousands were killed and injured, as well as cutting off the Internet, blocking social networking sites and attacking the headquarters of news stations.

The author of the article, Range Aladdin of the Brookings Institution in Doha and an expert on Iraq, said that Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi failed to prevent the worst crisis in the country since the Islamic State took over Mosul in 2014, and should take responsibility and ensure that those involved in the killing More than 100 protesters were injured and thousands more were injured.

The crisis of the bloody week puts Abdul-Mahdi in an unstable position, according to the writer who believes that the independent Shiite politician who served as finance minister and former vice president, deserves to be given a chance to get Iraq out of this crisis and move it forward.

Aladdin explains that the way forward is not a new government or a new prime minister, and all that this brings serious political uncertainty, but that moving towards the future requires a concerted effort to improve governance and work to revive the Iraqi economy.

The challenges for Abdel Mahdi are terrifying, according to Alaeddine, who stresses that the country, which has been plagued by wars and unrest for years, needs help. He said Western governments were focusing too much on a potential explosion that could lead to a war between the United States and Iran in Iraq, without presenting a strategy to strengthen its sovereignty.

"The harsh reality of the United States is that Baghdad is overly dependent on Tehran and cannot live without Iranian natural gas and other products that meet Iraq's daily needs," he said. Iraq's annual trade with Iran amounts to $ 12 billion, while US exports to Iraq do not exceed $ 1.3 billion.

Yet Washington can help reduce that dependence and strengthen Iraqi sovereignty by enabling Baghdad to build stronger ties with countries that can provide alternatives to Baghdad.

This could take the form of a roadmap for energy independence, including facilitating strategic dialogues on shared energy networks and new oil pipeline connections with Gulf states and Jordan, he said.

The writer also believes that the United States needs to increase its financial and technological investments in Iraq and use its weight to mobilize international investors, which will help push the economy and finance reconstruction projects in it.

US technology giants should embrace the start-up movement in Iraq and a new generation of leaders who have not yet been absorbed into the care networks.
