    World Tribune: US withdrawal and the weakness of Baghdad behind a resurgent revival

     Translation: Range

    After eight bitter months of fighting, the Iraqi army finally managed to take Mosul out of the grip of barbarism. Victory in this battle ended the myth that this terrorist group is invincible, as it liberated one of the capitals of the alleged caliphate. Fighting against an impasse is not yet over. The group still controls parts of Iraq and Syria. Major US military efforts helped the Iraqi army win. "The historical liberation of Mosul should not hide the fact that the road ahead remains challenging," said Jan Kubic, UN special representative for Iraq, addressing the UN Security Council.
    After US and coalition forces secured Iraq by 2010, the new Obama administration's political calculations changed the facts on the ground, and it became clear that the United States would withdraw from Iraq without leaving enough stability to secure any attacks in the future. In addition, Baghdad's inefficient government focused more on sectarian politics than on national unity, creating conditions for a new extremism. People have forgotten the bloody disaster, and by the end of 2011 President Obama withdrew all US troops. At the beginning of 2014, Obama saw that he was just advocating a small terrorist group, but months later, the militants proved to be laughably wrong. In June 2014, the group captured the city of Mosul in what became an insulting insult to the Iraqi army and a stunning psychological setback for Iraqi sovereignty. The fall of a large city and the loss of important lands caused a near-complete military collapse in the north. In the spring of 2015, the group captured Ramadi, west of Baghdad, as well as the Syrian city of Palmyra. The group looted archaeological sites rich Assyrian treasures such as Nimrod and urban. An anemic expansion in Anbar was devastating, and Americans were looking at the setbacks in Anbar as bitter because of the American blood that had flowed there during the Iraq war. The Dahesh group feeds on divisions between Shiites and Sunnis in Iraq.
    "To translate the gains of military victory into stability, security, justice and development, the government must do all it can to restore life, security and dignity to the citizens," Kubic said.
    "The fighting may stop but the humanitarian crisis will continue," warned Liz Grand, a UN Development Program official. "The United Nations estimates the cost of reconstruction alone is about 700 million dollars."
    After the liberation of Mosul, President Donald Trump said, "We have made progress against the past six months more than in previous years.
