From Syria to Iran – the middle-east region has always been a trouble for the American President Barack Obama. Now another moderately new issue called Iraq is aggravating the whole scenario.
Syria, the pivotal Arab world country, has long been undergoing apprehensions due to the unsettled sectarian issues, which has results into the furious civil war across the nation. However, the fact, which is coming up as the biggest concern of the U.S. Government as well as the Middle East analysts these days, is that Iraq, one of the neighboring countries of Syria, has been provoked by the latest Syrian revolt and has started showing aggression.
Iraq violence has been presenting new test for the United States of America since the American President pulled out the very last U.S. troops in the month of December in 2011, and it has turned even stronger now.
It is not the first time the U.S. officials are experiencing such a problem. Six years ago, a Sunni Muslim rebellion commenced in opposition to the Shiite-led Baghdad Government. Though the revolt groups got crushed by ‘surge’, the troop developed by the then-American President George W. Bush has been rekindled once again.
In the meantime, the raging civil war in Syria has resulted into the death of as much as 80,000 innocent people. Even though the worsening situation in Iraq is getting outshined by this social battle, the U.S. Government has started putting a secret yet powerful effort to curtail the level of hostility and bring the country back to political conciliations.
It has been an eight-year long war in which around 4,500 brave combatants of the United States have lost their lives. The nation has also expended hundreds of billions of dollars in order to bring a resemblance of social equality to the deliberately sited Iraq.
However, all were in vein as the ‘Cradle of Civilization’ is not at all ready to agree on an everlasting power sharing. It is nothing but a warning to the long-term constancy of the country.
The Government of the United States is extremely active to take necessary steps about this matter. It has been trying hard to put a stop to further intensification of violence by talking to the Iraqi forces. The U.S. officials are requesting them not to go with massive firepower. But, it can truly be said that Iraq has become hard on the U.S. and is giving a tough time to the nation.
