I have a longer weekly update prepared, but until these protests calm down… the GOI has their work cut out for them. It’s a shame that this is happening because I had some information towards the end of last week that had me getting pumped up. As much as many of us don’t like it. Iraq needs to wade through this mess and get the protests calmed down a bit before they can take their next steps. Don’t shoot the messenger. The good news is that we aren’t experiencing permanent setbacks. This too shall pass, and when it does, the progress will resume. These types of situations are usually short-lived.
