Iraq where checkpoints substandard , and terms of reference for security overlapping, and the capabilities ofintelligence is weak despite international support and billions of dollars spent, as it lacks the active Army ,where he still relies on non - governmental parties.

Most of the blame for the current problems in Iraq can be located on the United States and the United Kingdom 's policies after the invasion of2003.
