Post Drought From Currency Chatter
SOL = State of Law NA = National Alliance
- The SOL has held firm until today. They have insisted that Maliki is their nominee for over a month even in the face of the opposition from the SHIA COALITION, Sunni, Kurds, the clergy, the US, Europe, Iran, the UN and every surrounding Arab country.
The SOL consists of 95 MP's, 50 of which have already come out against their leadership saying they don't want Maliki. The SOL leadership has held firm that Maliki would be their nominee.
Their hope was to strike a deal for immunity for themselves, Maliki and the few hundred of people that have worked hand in hand with them stealing Iraq's wealth for the last 8 years.
Maliki offered a deal yesterday to quietly step away asking for 28 consessions. In there was immunity for him all his theives, a security source assigned to him personally of 2500 guys that the state would pay for, a VP position, control of who is chosen in certain ministries, etc. etc. Obviously that offer was not accepted.
Their argument has been that the SOL is the largest block and that they alone get to choose the PM position even in light of the fact they had signed a document in 2010 saying the NA was the largest block which was witnessed by all the other signatories.
They are now saying the document they had signed was a forgery and not worth the paper it is written on. The courts ruled in 2010 that the NA was the largest block, not the SOL based on this paper.
They have said they already ruled on it and don't want to hear the case again. Even so the SOL has stood firm that they are the largest block until now. Something must have happened in that meeting that has changed the dynamics.
To make a long story short, an agreement was just reached between the SOL and the coalition. Maliki will leave Iraq and each block within the NA (National Alliance) will recommend a candidate for PM and then the NA will vote on all and the winner will be the one who gets the most votes.
This seeminly puts the control firmly in the hands of the coalition as I am sure that they will block vote for Mahdi.
There was no nominee brought forth today for the PM position from either the SOL or the NA opposition.. Parliament held a meeting but the announcement of the PM position has been postponed until Thursday's meeting at which time the NA will bring forth one nominee (not Maliki).
If Maliki leaves Iraq as he has said he will do then at this meeting the Shia party will announce their nominee and Iraq will have peacfully had a transfer of power to the new non-sectarian government.
This coming weekend is still looking good for our investment to finally come to a fruition. I am keeping m fingers crossed. Tlar
Maliki's choice to leave Iraq ...... Abdul Rahman Al-Rashed
[13:18] 14/Aug/05 -- Gaza crisis will not succeed in divert attention from the wars in Iraq and Syria, which may alter the course of the region, especially Iraq.
Iraqis have finally succeeded in achieving a smooth transition to a secure new government, supported by the majority of the Iraqi people. Thus folded page of fear and chaos, and open a new page, and a new era. To agree on a new government, and the presidencies of three new, save Iraq from chaos and division, and will enable the Iraqis to confront terrorist groups, and repair the relationship with all neighboring countries.
Separates Iraq and this change is one step; appointment of a new prime minister. In Baghdad, politicians are still trapped Prime Minister stubborn, expired, Nuri al-Maliki.
Having exhausted all the tricks, he said, he agreed to go out and the price is not cheap, although it is assumed that he will pay the price or go out by Anonymous. 28 put a condition, requesting immunity for him and hundreds of his followers, not be held accountable for corruption and crimes committed by them in the eight years of his iron rule, with positions and compensation funds and Real Estate!!
Delayed Maliki frequently in dictations, he put conditions after the unanimous political and religious forces and external ejected, and no longer has what he is entitled to bargain it only granted immunity what, and even immunity may not last long if they later discovered more than what is known about the mismanagement .
A natural choice for the owners to leave Iraq if he seeks his safety, and prevents prosecution. Can travel to Tehran or London, for a few years until the storm subsides.
His legacy is so bad as to be difficult to give him a definite guarantees.
Blew in the litigation against his rivals, even forcing dozens of political insulation escape from Baghdad to safe areas in Iraqi Kurdistan, and the Jordanian capital, Beirut, and London.
But he has spent billions of dollars to build a presidential guard protected, does not protect Iraq and Iraqis
Raising the number of troops from the presidential to about six thousand seventy thousand were stationed in the capital, Baghdad, and the cost of his relatives manages guard, just in the footsteps of the former dictator, Saddam Hussein.
This is the secret tyranny of al-Maliki and his rivals fear him, because he has the power of the military more than the regular state forces trained and equipped.
Now, after a unanimous Iraqi forces to take it out, it became overused in his demands, in the hope that the figure remains politically difficult, dictations imposed on the prime minister and the new Iraqi government, which will cause in the battle to come.
Wants large amounts of money, real estate, and a force of two thousand and five hundred military, added to the militia, and the positions and powers.
No one wants to be the outgoing prime minister insulted or be subject to retaliation, and this means that the only safe place to him after he left his palace, is to travel abroad, with a few countries in the world would welcome it
As, Kenneth Hagan said, "the patience of God, will drive the devil crazy !" thanks Tlar, I think it is only a matter of time.
Wow, what a damning article. They finally got a gut full of Maliki. Well, at least the writers of this article. When his jet is seen leaving or suddenly one morning is missing from the flight line, then I will celebrate. Thanks Tlar for all your hard work and then sharing your opinions with us.
What wonderful news for Iraq and us.
Tlar, who wrote this article? I noticed that it didn't have a link and I'm hoping it's not just another coalition puff piece.
I agree Fred.
This doesnt look like news but an opinion piece implying that a change or deal has occured.
Will have to wait and see Tlar.
Jafaari (leader of NA) is asking for a 15 day delay to arrive at a consensus nominee.
We wait some more.
It's all kinda up in the air, I think. Did you see Ralph's article that says Sistani ordered them to have a nominee by Thursday? Also, there's Tarik Harb, Maliki's lawyer and constitutional expert, who says it can't be done any later than Sunday, because the deadline is, technically, Friday,
and that, and Saturday, are days off, but he makes no mention of the Eid holiday argument that Jaafari, allegedly, is trying to invoke. I think they get a nominee on Thursday, but that could just be the hopium talking. Harb has been right about the constitutional issues so far, though, so I think I've got a pretty strong argument.
Here's the link and the author... & thanks Tlar!!
Maliki's choice to leave Iraq ...... Abdul Rahman Al-Rashed
If you re-read the article slowly it seems to imply where the coalition threatens to take Maliki out if he does not leave.
There is seventy thousand Iraqi troops in Bagdad and 6 thousand private security forces belonging to Maliki.
I think Maliki was finally threatened to be removed face to face if he does not leave.
It looks to me like he was given a choice, leave ot be removed by force. I looks like he chose to leave. tlar
