[BGG] "Barzani accused of xxxxxxxxxx to buy weapons on the black market in response to the possession of al-Maliki refused to Erbil F-16s" -
It means Barzani was off looking for weapons - whcich I said that a while back!! No other reason for him to be in Eastern bloc countries....other than to go to the "garage sale of weaponry" that can be found in many of the smaller, former, Soviet Bloc affiliates

_ [rileyjones] Awadi: Maliki cannot fight any battle without reference to Parliament http://www.dinarupdates. ··· post4521
[rileyjones] noting that Maliki cannot fight any battle or other matter outside his authority without returning to the House of Representatives, or even to the cabinet because he could not take positions alone according to the Constitution.
"and added that the objection Kurds to buy the F- 16 are based either on the basis of mood or unfounded, noting that the House focuses on building the security establishment professionally serve and protect Iraq and is done by modern weapons ".
[BGG] When we got reports (about 2 weeks ago) of Maliki's cabinet having talks about a military option with the Kurds - Barzani was p!ssed that Maliki didn't end that conversation immediately - instead he participated.
I just wonder if he didn't do that just so the info would get to Barzani - he had to know it would....causing more dissention between Baghdad and Kurdistan (and further delays)...
[OfCourse13] Good morning Mrs BGG! News is rocking all of a sudden!
[Mrs BGG]OfCourse13 Good morning to you!! yep
[OfCourse13] BGG You've been hitting the nail on the head!
[rileyjones] Hrbo: the Iraqi List, moving internally and externally and Najafi is still trying to hold the conference of the four neighboring countries http://www.dinarupdates. ··· post4522
[BGG] Barzani had to have gotten the 411 on those talks some time before we did (I was just speculating that was the real purpose for his trip up there as there was no other clear-cut reason) - and when he did, it got his attention enough to put him in a "shopping mood"
[DOUBLE B] Mullah: Maliki's visit to Iran, the consecration of the intervention of Iran's internal affairs and try to stay in power
[DOUBLE B] sorry BGG, didn't mean to interrupt
[BGG] Those former Soviet Bloc regions have left-over Migs (recent stuff!!) lining the runways and servicable T-72's stacked 3 high just sitting there...
[OfCourse13] Who could blame Barzani? Not going to sit on his duff while M goes nuts with power lust.
[BGG] If I were an oil-rich territory in danger of genocide - I might be inclined to go shopping with some oil IOU's and see if I couldn't give my guys a fighting chance too!!

[DOUBLE B] Pink: Unfortunately, they discovered in overnight that some of the terms of the Arbil violation of the Constitution
[BGG] DOUBLE B - of course they did...
[BGG] DOUBLE B - that's their mantra these days...
[BGG] It sounded like they were leaning toward implementation anyways...

[OfCourse13] Ok BGG, what is "the pink"?
[rileyjones] United Nations to convene a national meeting to resolve the political problems in Iraq http://www.dinarupdates. ··· post4527
[BGG] What I can't figure - is why no one has made the argument that since the government was formed on the basis of an unconstitutional agreement (fully implemented or not) - wouldn't that make this dysfunctional government un-constitutional as well??
Fruit of the tainted tree - that is how it would go down over here - if being decided in a judiciary fashion. New elections are the real solution here. Start all over...and get it right.
[rileyjones] I agree!
[BGG] I doubt it will - I'm just saying...
[BGG] That's the hammer Al-Iraqiya needs to use publicly.
[BGG] That would get these slackers to the table for real - if they thought the very basis for their being in power were challenged they would be more inclinded to quit challenging the details in the deal that got them there.
[BGG] OfCourse13 - I'm guessing it refers to the speaker in the efeminate - the speaker was a woman MP...
