In an interview with the Real News Network, professor, author, and activist Vijay Prashad examines the rising power of Iran, and the declining influence of the United States, in war-torn Iraq.

"The Iraqis are, as it were, standing up," said Prashad. "I think an Iraqi could turn around now and say, this is our fight, and we have asked the neighboring country to join us. We don't need the United States at this point to give us assistance."
