If you type in "Iraq" on Google right now, you'll find reports of an assassination attempt against the country's Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kadhimi. The attack was perpetrated by the Iran-backed militias using a bomb attached to a drone that targeted his home in the capital.
It's clear that the militias, at one time apparent national heroes who led the campaign to retake northern Iraq from ISIS a couple of years ago, have since emerged as the greatest threat to Iraqi national security. Having failed in the 2021 parliamentary elections, they've now resorted to violence in the name of installing a foreign country as master over Iraqis.
What do you think the short and long term consequences of this development will be? What action, if any, do you think the Biden Administration should take in response?
