Iraq is in big problems when it comes to energy. The country depends on massive energy imports from sanctioned Iran. The waiver for the USA imposed sanctions should be renewed at the end of the month. Will the USA do this or will they attack one of Iran Fazal states?
When the waiver is not extended Iraq could no longer pay for the energy imports Or it needs to start using another currency that the world reserve currency: the US Dollar.
To make things even worse is the summer season coming. This is a moment when domestic energy production could not keep up with demand.
With this, the USA is going to win. When it extends the waiver it could push Iran back to the negotiation table. when not extending it would cause a humanitarian nightmare in Iraq. Seeking to keep Iraq divided and busy killing each other.
No matter what happens. It seems that the USA is winning in all cases.
