For god's sake, if I hear another American on TV telling me about "Eye-wrack" I will scream !!
It is pronounced Iraq with the 'I' as in 'India' (or do you pronounce that Eye'n'd-ee-yah ?!
It is how THEY pronounce their countries name which makes it the CORRECT way to pronounce it. It is also hwo the rest of the world pronounces it.
How do you pronounce Indianapolis? Does it start with 'Eye'? No? WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU ?!?!?!
Please, for the sake of what is left of your version of our English tongue ... learn to speak - everyone else has !
