“…On February 11, 2004, even without an elected government and over European complaints that the ‘demand was irregular and premature,’ Iraq obtained WTO [World Trade Organization] observer status: the first step toward full membership. …Less than one year later, the WTO agreed to accept Iraq’s bid and begin the review and negotiation process toward full membership.”
