Will the US and its allies develop a better plan for Iraq after their latest victory?
With growing confidence that ISIS has been stripped of any significant control in Mosul, signifying a return of the group’s last bastion back to the Iraq people, the question now is what lies ahead for the war-torn country?

With momentum shifting to the people, is Iraq destined to turn the page and begin the process of a peaceful rebuild that is inclusive of people from all walks of life? Or will it continue the cycle of violence and dissension that has prohibited progress for the last few decades?
