_11:05 PM [BGG] I do not foresee this to be a lengthy or difficult process (I could be wrong)...you should see the articles start to trickle out about it in the next week (or less)...
11:07 PM [BGG] The bad news is Maliki has already withstood one impeachment or removal attempt (during his last term) in 2008 and put up with a year long boycott by the Sunni's - so this is not new to them.
Feb 21 11:07 PM [BGG] But this time they have him on record essentially admitting to his primary crime on Iraqi TV (a little arrogant)...
11:10 PM [BGG] Someone agreeable to all parties will step in as an interim (NOT Allawi) - likely Talibani...they will have the "National Meeting", a fully formed GOI and the remaining Ministers as per the original agreements.
11:10 PM [Sugar Pie] Then Maliki will get what he deserves!
11:11 PM [BGG] My prediction is this will be done and over with by about the 3rd week of March (latest)...and we might well have an RV around the same time (if not sooner).
11:12 PM [Sugar Pie] I like your prediction! especially the "if not sooner" part
11:13 PM [foghorn] okay.. i'm good with it... one month out and were rich.. I could really give a sh*t who's in power over therer..
11:13 PM [BGG] But unless there is some immediate radical turn of events this is the process I envision taking place - Maliki is simply attacking too many Sunni gov't officials for this to go any other way. It's starting to look like a political genocide over there.

_ 11:14 PM [BGG] So that's it - Maliki out....interim in, National Meeting, Ministers and GOI seated...probable RV sometime along in the process - done by March 21st.
11:14 PM [BGG] Well?? Comments??
11:14 PM [foghorn] hip hip hooray!!!
11:14 PM [h-spot] hope youre right'
11:15 PM [foghorn] hip hip hooray!!
11:15 PM [h-spot] especially about the 'if not sooner' part
11:15 PM [mammat] I can see this scenerio BGG
11:15 PM [mammat] Thanks
11:15 PM [God's grace] very interesting, makes more sense then the others, thanks
11:15 PM [mammat] However, I thought they were beginning to all play nice?
11:15 PM [ReadytoRetire] BGG Do you think they would actually move that fast?
11:15 PM [drdrew11] I think that's a very logical assessment BGG. Sounds great!!
11:15 PM [BGG] Wow - this really is the sanest bunch on the web?!?
11:16 PM [BGG] I expected a flurry of backlash...
11:16 PM [BGG] really.
11:16 PM [mammat] BGG Why do you think we hang here?-!
11:16 PM [mammat] lol
11:16 PM [foghorn] actually.. i agree with the maliki attacking to many sunni's.. he is trying to throw them in jail, considering them terriost..
11:16 PM [BGG] Of course, I don't make a crummy little prediction - I went big on this one lol
11:16 PM [david7] Bgg thoughts on Arab summit and 3rd week of march for rv/Goi
11:16 PM [BGG] david7 - I thought that was the 28th/29th??
11:17 PM [drdrew11] Yes
11:17 PM [BGG] ReadytoRetire - They already have all the ammo they need - not to pull the trigger.
11:17 PM [BGG] now to pull the trigger.
11:17 PM [Evangelist] Thanks BGG!
11:17 PM [foghorn] BGG not sane.. just sick of the none creative way most think...
11:17 PM [ReadytoRetire] BGG I pray you're right because M is most definitely a Dictator in my mind.
11:17 PM [mammat] BGG I understand that they all went to Talabanis house tonite after Parliament to keep working?
11:18 PM [mammat] Maybe to plan Maliki's departure...
11:18 PM [david7] 27-29th. Was assuming other countries would need to feel secure. Rv/seated goi that late seems as though it could make them uneasy
11:18 PM [BGG] His own party has asked him to step down - this won't cause a civil war - it might well prevent one!!!
11:19 PM [mammat] wow
11:19 PM [foghorn] BGG great thought process.. don't know if will turn out like you say,, but.. It sounds plausible..
11:19 PM [BGG] He has completely marginalized about 2/3rds of his own country and most of his own party. The status qou will not last.
11:21 PM [_8th1der] I think it will ake a week, maybe more... lol
11:21 PM [BGG] So that's all I got for ya' tonite
11:22 PM [BGG] mammat - Let's hope they are planning his exodus.
11:22 PM [drdrew11] Thanks a lot BGG! That was awesome!
11:22 PM [God's grace] sure gave us alot to think on, thanks sure hope you are right on
11:22 PM [Sugar Pie] BGG TY
11:22 PM [BGG] (that means - departure lol )
11:22 PM [mammat] bgg yes!!!
11:22 PM [mammat] Thanks BGG...appreciate you!
11:22 PM [repairman] the sooner the rv the happier I will be
11:23 PM [BGG] God's grace - We'll see, I got a little ways away from the edge of the pool with this one.
11:23 PM [BGG] lol
11:23 PM [BGG] All wrapped up by late March...
11:24 PM [JudahTribe8] thx bgg
11:24 PM [h-spot] BGG most are also saying by arab summit too
11:24 PM [h-spot] about a months more wait..... hopfeully less
11:25 PM [God's grace] we waited this long what's a little longer?
11:26 PM [Justme] BGG--That alright, you can't get to second until you take your foot off first,
11:26 PM [h-spot] hows about a little comedy now?
11:26 PM [Sugar Pie] LOL
11:26 PM [BGG] The more I research, the more "real info" I get, the more I watch - I just came to the realization - it's just not going to happen with Maliki in power and right now they may well have the stiffest case they will ever have against him - the evidence is clearly in the public domain.
11:26 PM [h-spot] sure hope youre right
11:27 PM [KingofGlory] I have alsways felt it would not happen with Maliki in power. Said so last night.
11:27 PM [david7] Bgg do you believe the rv needs to happen before the Arab summit or summit will be cancelled?
11:27 PM [BGG] I may well be "predicting" what has already been enacted - Talibani is sure operating with a newfound sense of authority.
11:28 PM [BGG] david7 - It's not about the RV - it's about the National Meeting and the GOI fully formed pre-Summit. RV is important but only one factor.
11:29 PM [BGG] Niters all - i'm out.3
