In December 2017, Iraq's government declared victory over the Islamic State (IS) group. But the battle against the terror organisation is not over. In Iraq, the group quickly returned to its insurgent roots. In neighbouring Syria, around 2,000 fighters still control sizeable areas near the Iraq-Syria border. Meanwhile, tensions between US and Iranian-backed forces are complicating matters on the ground. FRANCE 24's Iraq correspondent reports.

I love all the "evil US" comments as if you think morality even matters when it comes to foreign policy. Greater powers will exploit weak ones. All these divided middle eastern nations can do is snuggle up to their aligned greater power and hope that they allow them to pursue their interests. I do personally think there is no longer a need to dominate the middle east seeing as our proved oil reserves have grown alot since the early 2000s si expect a slow withdrawal seeing as there is no longer a need to ensure the oil in the middle east.

I am Isis, the Mistress of Every Land
I gave and ordained laws for men, which no one is able to change
I am she that rises in the Dogstar, she who is called Goddess by women
I divided the Earth from the Heaven, I ordered the course of the Sun and the Moon
I am Queen of rivers and winds and seas, I am the rays of the Sun
I overcome fate. Fake hearkens to me

They will be so happy real soon when the US leaves and they can once again fall under some other dictator and have to cry for help from another country.

That militia leader is right, America created ISIS and they will do anything to justify their stay now in Iraq until they suck Iraq’s natural resources dry...this is what the U.S gov do, they destabilize other countries for personal gain.

If it wasn’t for the US, none of these people would even know how to fight against ISIS and their country would be entirely under ISIS control, yet they show absolutely no gratitude.

Based on the swift success ISIL surprise attack on Iraq in 2014 where they came as close as few miles outside Bagdad, without the West, Russia & Kurds I think they might have won the war.
