Iraq's struggle for democracy [Letter]

July 14, 2014

President Barack Obama has stated that for the U.S. to extend a helping hand to Iraq he must see "tangible commitments from Iraq's leaders to pursue more inclusive government agenda" ("50 bodies found in Iraq in massacre resurgence," July 10).

Despite many setbacks, Iraqi Prime Minster Nouri al-Maliki announced that the army has gained the upper hand against militants of the ISIS, and I hope to see Iraq eventually become a state, self-sufficient county and the first democracy in the Arab Middle East.
