my mother's mother is Iraqi, so my mother had citizenship before she renounced it to keep her father's Kuwaiti one which she has now renounced too, but does this mean that I get Iraqi citizenship as being quarter Iraqi as my grandma on my mother's side is full Iraqi?

Apparently not. You need an Iraqi parent or to have been born in Iraq.

If she renounced her citizenship and was not born in Iraq, almost certainly not

To flee the US for one thing.

On the basis that your mother renounced her Iraqi citizenship, I don't think so. Unless she did this after you were born then there may be a loophole, if in doubt apply for it anyway, the worst they can do is say no.
