[mojavesam] Only 7 hours until Friday in Iraq...my cousin in Jordan is watching closely since he is a contractor and he did not hear any of the things Tony talked about on the last call.
[freeway2] mojavesam Gd morning how wood he, he is in Jordan and wouldn't have the intel that Tony and DC have.
[mojavesam] freeway2 agreed but he monitors the Mosques there and the TV stations and he saw none of that...very closed society though.
[freeway2] mojavesam M owns most of the media and can control anything coming out of Iraq - and therefore it more than likely is blacked-out from outside Iraq.
[mojavesam] freeway2 YUP I guess we will find out in the 15 hours or so.
[EvangeeGT] What I don't get and this is nothing against the beautiful people of the US. I don't get HOW O has any pull in the Iraqi house? Why would they let him dictate who is in power over there?
[joyd] why does O keep delaying it.........how is that helping him
Jun 19 8:49 AM [asn] IMO... Whatever agreement Tony and DC were elluding to yesterday between President Obama and PM Maliki has to do with more about the the ability of PM Maliki to either "A" Allow all religous sects be part of the GOI, you can move forward with the RV on Firday June 20th and see if you can gather additional votes to remain the PM…..If you cant gain enough votes then you leave with the RV Legacy and the new PM takes over.
[Igotit] This has been in the making for quite sometime, Maliki had certain goals that had to be acheived prior to consideraion of running for a third term i.e. Constitution, Power and Money Sharing between other Iraqi Cities, Implement Democratic Principles, and The RV by a certain date. THE USA was the Liberator, and holds many agreements with the UN, IMF, and Others.
[chillimac] asn i doubt that any deal was made for him to remain pm, more likly that he will be able to leave a legacy , rather than go out of office as a tyrant or reflections of a dictator, he has nothing to show as his own accomplishments, remember what tony said about how history will portray you.
[asn] chillimac Not to make this a long political view just remember what DC said "PM Maliki did not get enough votes to automatically have a third term but if the RV does happen then those in the other political party's might use there vote to help PM Maliki remain PM but its highly unlikely" President Obama is more concerned about the protection of the OIL Fields and rightly so because those Oil Fields are the CornerStone of the GCR. Presidient Obama can not and would not help Maliki remain PM but only to remind him of legal issues that could be brought against him within the World Court! JMO... GO RV...
[harvey57] IMO Both O and M got a great deal. They both get a huge bank account, M gets an RV for his legacy and O can say he saved the economy and boost his ratings.
[chillimac] I think m was told to do this now if you want to leave a legacy,
in no way do i believe he will remain in office, and i could be way off on that belief
[chaseybear] Chillimac i agree i think he is toast or at least should be
[poppy3] amazing MY LOCAL NEWS JUST REPORTED OUTLOUD THAT THE ISIS GROUP WHERE IN COLUSION WITH THE LEADER OF IRAQ ??? DUH DO YOU THINK ??? WHAT HAVE WE BEEN YELLING FOR DAYS. THEY WHERE ORDERED TO RETREAT AND STAND DOWN BY OUR BAD BOY MALIKI ???? THIS WAS CHANNEL 2 IN NASHVILLE TN. I WAS SHOCKED TO HEAR THEM A NEWS ROOM ACTUALLY SAY SOMETHING FACTUAL ABOUT IRAQ.
[poppy3] HE REPORTED THERE WHERE 30,000 PLUS TROOPS GUARDING MOSUL AND LESS THAN 800 TERROIST AND THE 30,00 WALKED AWAY UPON BEING ATTACKED. SAID MALIKI IS NOW SAYING HE WILL HOLD HIS GENERALS RESPONCIBLE FOR RETREATING ??? HE NEVER CHANGES. POPPY3
[BigDog-OH] Americans need a financial wake-up call
[BigDog-OH] The currencies set to gain from oil's spike
[#3sister] I have a question please. If Iraq just had elections, why is our government telling Maliki he has to go? And why is there nothing to be found about Iraq holding elections?
[sagefemme] #3sister there is no real answer to that questions
[sagefemme] there were elections.... but who really won?
[Papa Bear] sagefemme Vote happened .Outcome known doesnt stop fighting
[#3sister] PapaBear so if a new PM was elected why are we telling Maliki he has to go? I don't understand sorry
[Papa Bear] #3sister HE IS THE PROBLEM
[sagefemme] Papa Bear is maliki refusing to step down?
[Papa Bear] sagefemme Doing everything he can to keep from having to step down including trying to move to dictatorship.IMHO
[drl] Papa Bear If Maliki keeps his reputed promise to unveil the RV do you feel it is possible for him to garnish votes away from the popular canidates to win a 3rd term or is the writing already on the wall in respect to the new PM and his efforts are just those of an egomanical thug?
[Papa Bear] drl Promises for him are made to be broken but we will see
[drl] this is a good READ... The new parliament will hold its first session on the 26th! Their announcement will be on sunday, 1 week sooner!
[drl] [millionday] A source familiar with the Presidency of the Republic, on Wednesday that Vice President Khodair al will call the new parliament to hold its first session next Tuesday. The source, who asked not to be named for / Baghdadi News /, that "Vice President Khodair al will be asked to formally members of the new Council of Representatives to attend the first session next Tuesday (24/6) and chaired by the eldest member."
