The US Secretary of State, John Kerry visited Iraq recently in order to defuse tension over the conflicts and violence taking place there.

John Kerry flew over to Iraq in a desperate bid to decrease the lawlessness and bring peace and sanity to the troubled region. The militant fanatics who are hell bent on destroying the land and its people need to be stopped from their nefarious agenda.

Kerry made his way to Iraq from Jordan in a journey the confidentiality and secrecy of which was maintained at all costs. He met the Iraqi prime minister, Nuri al-Maliki. He will also be engaging in discussions with several Iraqi heads of various factions in order to bring the belligerence under control.

This all occurs amidst President Obama’s plans to send over 300 military experts and undertake air attacks on the militants’ hideaway spots. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is the real issue since the terrorist group is just not giving up its vicious and brutal ways.

John Kerry will be chalking out a plan to move things forward and allow progress to take place in the war-torn region. He will try to create a consensus of opinion in matters of the future of Iraq by getting the approval of the various legitimate leaders.

John Kerry "will discuss US actions underway to assist Iraq as it confronts this threat from ISIL and urge Iraqi leaders to move forward as quickly as possible with its government formation process to forge a government," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

And although Kerry made the point clear that his government was not selecting leaders on the basis of their values as puppets, Nuri al-Maliki was not very popular anymore at home or abroad. His ratings had gone down and the graph that showed his progress seemed to be a line going downward.

"The United States would like to see the Iraqi people find leadership that is prepared to represent all of the people of Iraq," Kerry told reporters in Cairo on Sunday at the end of his surprise visit to Egypt.

Kerry reiterated that it all depended upon cooperation among all the factions. They had to put their petty differences behind them and fight the terrorists as a united front. And this included Kurds, Sunni Arabs and Shiites within Nuri al-Maliki’s party as well.

Kerry furthermore said that the Iraqi government has "to be inclusive and share power in a way that will maximise the ability of Iraq to focus on the real danger at this moment from an external source, which is ISIL.".

Contrary to general opinion, the United States was seen as a great helper of the people of Iraq in the country. The ISIL are slowly but steadily gaining ground and so there is a real danger of a takeover by this radical fringe group that is not only fundamentalist but downright fanatical in its views and actions.

Kerry also warned all countries, particularly the Gulf countries, that "there is no safety margin whatsoever in funding a group like ISIL."

"We particularly discourage individuals in the region who may have been sending money through some innocent charity or through various backchannel initiatives under the guise that it's for the general welfare and benefit of people who've been displaced."

America had the "highest level of commitment to Iraq," Kerry said. He would also do "person-to-person diplomacy with the key leaders and the key blocs as they work towards forming a new government along the constitutional timeline," the Psaki added.

 

John Kerry finally said that Iraq’s fate hung in the balance and the US would do all that lay in its power to avert any political disaster.
