Abstract : The pattern of diplomatic relations between Iraq and the United States is riddled with inconsistencies and mistrust. The recent flurry of U.N. violations, bombings, denials, retribution and exaggerated rhetoric is merely the latest chapter in, what may be, the most frustrating and misguided U.S. national security strategy in the Southwest Asia Gulf region. In order to understand the current contentious issues it is necessary to review a little of Iraq's history, demography, geography and Religions.
