Iraq needs to completely de-dollarize all of its markets with strict penalties, except for sales of oil where it is necessary. No one should be allowed to use US dollars, and even locals should not be sold them. Although there will always be a black market, Iraq must take action to prevent the use of US dollars, especially since countries like Iran, Turkey and Syria, which are under US sanctions, still seek to use them. This is a difficult situation for Iraq, but it is important for them to take steps to address it.
