Once again, "The Seven" announce a coup in Iraq. Rashid Ali al-Gaylani is made head of the government, and he indicates that he intends to abide by the Anglo-Iraqi Treaty which set the conditions for Iraq's independence. Soon, however, "The Seven" will break the treaty by refusing to allow passage of British troops through Iraqi territory and the government begins to express support for Germany.
