The mother of all quizzes: How much do you know about US-Iraq relations?

The complex and at times controversial economic and political relationship between the US and Iraq continues to evolve against a backdrop of conflict both in Iraq and the Middle East.

2. After the collapse of the Ottoman Empire at the end of World War I, Iraq came under control of which foreign power?

The secret 1916 Sykes-Picot Agreement saw the British and French carve out spheres of influence over the Middle East, which Britain realized in part a year later, by seizing Baghdad during World War I. With the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Britain created the Iraqi state in 1920 out of three former Ottoman provinces with the League of Nations giving its stamp of approval. Iraq gained independence from Britain in 1932.
