Everybody thought Iraq was at the end of becoming a member with the World Trade Organization…Come to find out they’re just barely at the beginning stages.  What does this mean for Iraq?  How long is this going to take?  Wikipedia quote:  “An offer of accession is given once consensus is reached among members.  The process takes about five years on average but can take some countries almost a decade…The shortest accession negotiation was…2 years and 10 months.  The longest were that of Russia lasting 19 years and 2 months.
