Post From Currency Chatter By Tlar
I just got my computer back. My hardrive had crashed on Saturday. I have been using my phone to try to keep up but it was spotty as to reception because I live at the very edge of the reception for T-Mobile. Most of what I have written (comments) on specific posts could not be sent by my phone because of overcast days and rains.
Everything looks to me like it is coming together probably as it should. There is no secret that Maliki has not resigned but rather is trying to engineer some way to have a puppet regime acting on his influence (orders) and in particular to put up a shield of protection around himself, all while trying to appear the stateman for Iraq.
He has left his name in as a hedge to be prime minister but is willing to step aside if his puppet Tarek Najm is chosen "and accepted" by the Sol and the coalition. The only way this will quickly be resolved is for the SOL to un-nominate him and choose another candidate, either Chalabi, Allawi or Mahdi.
If they choose Tarek, this is not over. He is not acceptable to the coalition, the UN, the Sunni's, the Kurds, the US, the EU.. Maliki is attempting to do what Putin did in Russia. Run a puppet PM and call the shots from behind the scene. This will not happen because everyone sees right through it.
For there to be an RV on the first, somehow they must form a government this week. Some gurus out their still believe Maliki will get a third term. He will not and this situation can't be dragged on and on.
We will quickly see a resolution to this in my opinion. The stakes are too high. Iraq risks civil war and all the players know it. I read Revbo's retort to Ennorste and Revbo IMO you are right on.
There is a lot of unknowns yet to be resolved but rest assured we are very close. I feel very comfortable that Turki is just waiting on two things; A new government and Maliki out.
Turki just needs to see a government of the people and know that the attacks against the reserves are over. His job is monetary policy and he wants no threats, intimidation or attacks by a hostile government seeking to take hold of the reserves. He is ready and waiting just like you and me.
When these two things occur we are there and he will pull the trigger.. The initial target date is July 1st but if it drags a few extra days, then it is possible that the RV will drag a few extra days.
Maliki must be gone. He will be gone. The Sunni's and kurds will never accept a reformed Maliki government or a reformed Maliki. This is a very serious deal with tons of money and lives at stake.
It will be resolved the right way without any games played by Maliki, and that's part of the reason why the coalition has given just 3 days for the SOL to announce a new candidate, or they will then announce a candidate on their own. Keep watching but this is an interesting period in history.
Iraq is trying to birth itself to a new democracy that represents everyone and everyone has rights. I highly recommend everyone keep a nuetral perspective. Try not to let you emotions rise or fall with any particular article. This will be very confusing at times this week. This plan will work because it has to. tlar
