    The correct pronunciation of the country is "ee rak". Calling it "eye rak" just shows that the speaker is an ignorant fool.

  • They are pronounced in the same way.

    Iraq may not be the "proper" way to say it (similar to how an American would probably pronounce "Okinawa" as "Okuh-naw-wuh"), but it is the way most Americans pronounce it.

    well, the proper way of saying Iraq is 'eerahk'...

    they are pronounced the same way

    only the context in which they are used (in speaking) can tell them apart

    hope i helped!
