*Iran’s Shi’a militia allies in Iraq enable the mullahs to exert substantial influence over Baghdad, and will continue to do so no matter the composition of the new Iraqi government.

* Key Iraqi Shi’a militia commanders are emerging as prominent politicians in their own right, capable of promoting policies favorable to Tehran.

* Even though the so-called Islamic State has been mostly defeated in Iraq, Iran’s proxies remain armed and in a separate chain of command from the duly constituted Iraqi government armed forces.

*Trump Administration policy toward Iran will likely have spillover effects that contribute to tensions in Iraq between pro-Washington and pro-Tehran leaders and policies.
