[BGG] Good Morning Updaters!!
[BGG] Here's an interesting excerpt...
[rileyjones] BGG Good Morning! Just incase you missed it:::::: [poppy3] ok i am back for a brief time. I have to keep running out because I have large order of ribs on the smoker. YUM . POPPY3
[BGG] the NA is talking...."pointing out that existing threats to Iraq to withdraw confidence from the government headed by Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in the event Conference has been postponed until after the Arab Summit to be held this month, is not possible or realistic, even if Iraq has enough confidence to pull him to have done so previously.
The comments made by the Iraqi List, which confirmed that it has several options in the event of continuation of the status quo, including the internationalization of the political crisis, or to withdraw confidence from the government"

_ [BGG] Uh - again...hate to say "I told you so...." but...
[BGG] What they are saying is - even though AL-Iraqiya is threatening to enact a "no-confidence vote" if they attempt to put this off past the Arab Summit...
[BGG] their position is that it isn't possible or realistic - even if they have had the votes or "juice" previously (as I mentioned)...
[h-spot] BGG thankyou for translating the translation. We need a book-"Arabic-English Translation for Dummies"
[rileyjones] BGG Who will take his place?
[BGG] and then Al-Iraqiya counters with - "yeah and that's not all - we have several ways we can handle this"!!!
[BGG] rileyjones - My guess - Talibani (for the interim)...till new elections or the end of this term.
[Sugar Pie] BGG Yes, ty BGG
[BGG] interesting comment - "in the event of continuation of the status quo"...
[rileyjones] BGG That would be my pick....Wasn't there an article about Talibani stepping down about a month ago?
[BGG] that's it in a nutshell - Maliki wants the "status quo" to continue and everyone else wants the full government seated. That is our current situation - no matter what these idiots were going on about last nite.
[BGG] That - to me, is some really, really good news...at least they are admitting in public that these are real options...and I don't think I believe the NA rhetoric - I'm still pretty sure the IS has the votes and the dirt...
[BGG] "Iraqiya Slate"
[DOUBLE B] Maliki to visit Kuwait in mid March
[AZMike] BGG...thanks for your translation. I always appreciate your insights. Poppy is really full of pi$$ and vinager this morning. Very funny.
[DOUBLE B] March 2 (AKnews)- Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki will visits Kuwait in mid March, said Maliki's adviser.
Maryam al-Rais said that the PM will discuss all the suspended issues between the two countries and will endeavor to solve all and open a new page in the history of political and economic relations with Kuwait.
Discussing the controversy over the Kuwaiti mega Port of Mubark is high on the agenda of PM's visit, the official said.
The port is said to undermine the Iraqi marine trade.

[DOUBLE B] BGG, so when is the " meeting " scheduled for now ?
[DOUBLE B] Or should I say, the guesstimate for the " meeting "
[BGG] DOUBLE B - I have heard the National Meeting was tentatively set for Monday?? We shall see...
[DOUBLE B] Okie Dokie, ty sir.
[BGG] DOUBLE B - and that article about Deputy PM Al-Mutlag meeting with the US Ambassador doesn't look like a guy hiding in fear for his job. Looks more like one of the few out doing his job - to me.
