Iraq is in a grip. The rocket attack on a top Iranian general at Baghdad airport drags Iraq into the geopolitical conflict between Iran and the US. To make the situation more complex, the country does not even have its own affairs in order. Back in 2003, the people of Iraq cheered when the statue of the dictator Saddam Hussein finally went down on Firdos Square. But the following decades, Iraqi society became increasingly disrupted.
