The Changing U.S. Footprint in Iraq

MIN READApr 9, 2020 | 05:10 GMT


In this episode of Stratfor's Essential Geopolitics podcast, Fred Burton speaks with Middle East and North Africa analyst, Emily Hawthorne. In a recent analysis for Stratfor Worldview, Hawthorne wrote that:

"By tightening the screws on Iran’s regional proxies and energy sector, the United States risks damaging its remaining ties with the Iraqi government."

This, as both countries remain committed to an anti-terrorist coalition and other ties. A meeting scheduled for June, 2020 will reveal a lot about where the relationship is headed.
