Hello Updaters!! News will be coming out all day in *** Current News *** and *** Chat Comments *** is full of good stuff. Thanks – BGG
*** Flashback ***
UPDATE: The news (early) is still no National Conference meeting set…..I won’t be doing a “flashback” today. My main comment is it appears as though Maliki intends to take this fight all the way to the Parliament. I didn’t doubt it to start with. There are some very interesting twists in the news – check it out. They know, he knows, they know he knows, now let’s get to it…
Maliki has rejected any deadline set by alliances…
They won’t dissolve Parliament – that would give Maliki a chance to survive (more turmoil)…
The real reason Maliki was in Kirkuk was not for this “meeting” – he was running some troops up there under the “guise” of this meeting and intending to round up some political rivals by naming them as “baathist or terrorist”….He’s got an evil agenda.
Hakim and Jaafari are interested in ”cement NC Meeting”…this has been a developing story line over the last few days. I am not so sure they are proceeding on two fronts. First, on the chance at a meeting and then as soon as his days are up, going ahead with the vote.
I got a really funny letter on the Blog yesterday – I had to share….
Read More Link on Right
Ok - I read the blog. It’s beautifully written and much of it I agree with but parts go into topics I would rather pretend don’t exist. I really haven’t done enough research on those topics to give an informed opinion. I guess if it were true I’d prefer to stay in my bubble where it wasn’t. Go RV!!
There’s a big part of me that agrees with this poster…but us not wanting to look at it - doesn’t change the facts.

Foreign Policy: Our Man in Baghdad, Maliki, but he threatens to “democracy”
Baghdad / Washington / Orr News
رسم باحث اميركي مختص بالشأن العراقي، صوراً متعددة لرئيس الوزراء العراقي نوري المالكي، ووصفه بان يمتلك قدرة ملحوظة على خلق الاعداء.Drawing an American researcher who specializes in the Iraqi issue, multiple images of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, calling that has a remarkable ability to create enemies. ويدلل جيمس ترابو في الفورن بولسي على صحة وصفه بالاستناد على تحليلات جوزت هلترمان من المجموعة الدولية للازمات، الذي يعتقد ان ” العلاقات الشخصية بين الجميع والمالكي رهيبة”. James and demonstrates Turabo in Alforn Shi’ites complain to the health and described based on the analyzes of Joost Hiltermann of the International Crisis Group, who believes that “the personal relations between Maliki and all awesome.”
وبحسب الفورن بوليسي، فقد عرضت هذه الموهبة بوضوح شديد في اذار، حينما عقد مؤتمر القمة العربية في بغداد . According Alforn Policy, has offered this talent is very clear in March, when the Arab summit conference in Baghdad. وبالرغم من ان الحدث كان يعني الاشارة لاعادة ظهور العراق كدولة معتبرة بعد عقود من الاستبداد واراقة الدماء، وقد رفض قادة عشرة دول من مجموع 22، ومن ضمنهم فعليا دول الخليج الحضور، معبرين عن الاستياء من عداء المالكي الملاحظ للسنة سواء في داخل او خارج العراق ، وحولوا القمة الى طقوس مملة. Although the event was the mean signal for the re-emergence of Iraq as saying after decades of tyranny and bloodshed, was rejected by the leaders of ten countries of the total 22, including virtually the Gulf states to attend, expressing their resentment of the anti-Maliki is noted for the year, whether within or outside of Iraq, Summit and turned to the rite boring. والجار الوحيد الصديق الذي بقي للعراق هو ايران الشيعية ، والتي تبدو انها تنوي الى تخفيض جارتها الى دولة تابعة . The only neighbor and friend who left for Iraq is Shi’ite Iran, which looks like it intends to reduce its neighbor to the client state. …….
And long-term U.S. interests in the Middle East are exactly the same to the Arab peoples: Replace the authoritarian regimes of distasteful regimes democratic, and the replacement of sectarian discourse letter non-sectarian – sectarian or less, and I imagined the Bush administration that Iraq will serve as a hub for regional transformation. وبدلا من ذلك ، فقد اصبح في ظل المالكي دولة متشظية بصورة عميقة بخصائص ديمقراطية سطحية. Instead, it has become in a fragmented state-Maliki deeply superficial characteristics of democracy.
Really weird how this ties in with my commentary yesterday (in the last paragraph alluding to the policy shift in the last term). The good news is – even these guys seem to recognize Maliki is making enemies at an alarming rate. It almost looks like to me – he’s not much use to anybody like this (no matter how “dark” they are).
Work of the intelligence field and to take actions such as a military coup Maliki’s public declaration about the possibility of suspending the Constitution!!
Palm – sources close to the General Command of the Iraqi armed forces, said the announcement by Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki yesterday the option of suspending the Constitution, means to impose its control on the military mission, public institutions in the country through the implementation of the coup, promising him work in the fields of military and intelligence.
While I don’t see this as a “do-able” strategy on his part – it clearly illustrates what kind of “crack-pot” we’ve got on our hands here. I really think even the mention this kind of jibberish is what will be part of Maliki’s final “Waterloo”…not even the bad guys want this!?!
Sadr al-Maliki to clarify his position: I want his life and wants to kill me
Said the cleric Moqtada al-Sadr on the position of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki as a dictator and his warning of sectarianism and Application of the Convention of Arbil and the resulting isolation of the Sadrist Shiites that “the right not left his friend.”
ورد الصدر على سؤال من أحد اتباعه من ان يكون تفسير تكرار النقد للمالكي بانه ” ممايلة للاكراد ولرئيس القائمة العراقية اياد علاوي وما يتسبب من ذلك في عزل الصدريين عن الشيعة ” شكراً لسؤالك ألم تسمع لم يبق لي الحق من صديق وعموماً فانا من يقول للشيعة والتشيع السياسي بطبيعة الحال لا التشيع العقائدي الحق [أريد حياته ويُريد قتلي ..عذريك من خليلك من مراد] فأني كنت وسأبقى المدافع عن الحق أياً كان وان يكون عدو لي قديم صديق لي على حساب ان يكون صديق قديم عدو لي فهذا في منظار المنطق والعقل والشرع خسارة وفي منظاري الشخصي فرح ممزوج بحزن أو حزن مشوب بالأسى . Reported chest to a question from one his followers to be the interpretation of repeated criticism of the owners as “Mmaalh of the Kurds and the existing Iraqi President Iyad Allawi, and what causes it to isolate the Sadrists for Shiites,” Thank you for your question Did not you hear I have nothing left right from a friend and generally, I say the Shiites and Shiism political Of course not bias the ideological right I want his life and wants to kill me .. Adhirak of thy friend of Murad] I am you and I will continue defending the right whatever to be anenemy to me is a friend of mine at the expense of that old friend, an enemy to me it in the perspective of logic and reason and Shara loss in Specular Profile joy mixed with sadness or grief distressed unblemished. حسب قوله . He said.
يذكر ان زعيم التيار الصدري مقتدى الصدر شارك في الاجتماع التشاوري الذي عقد في 28 نيسان الماضي في اربيل ونتجت عن ذلك الاجتماع مجموعة من المقررات بعثها الصدر في رسالة الى التحالف الوطني يوم 2 ايار الحالي ابرزها امهال الحكومة 15 يوما والتي [ستنتهي الخميس المقبل 17 الحالي] للموافقة على مقررات الاجتماع والا سيتم سحب الثقة عنها.انتهى. The cleric Moqtada al-Sadr took part in the consultative meeting held on 28 April, in Erbil and resulted from that meeting a range of courses sent al-Sadr in a letter to the National Alliance on May 2 the current most prominent of which give the government 15 days, which [will end next Thursday, 17 current] to approve the decisions of the meeting, but will be withdrawn and confidence. ended.
Of all the guys over there I could think of to be in a “life or death struggle” with – I could think of lots of guys I would pick before I got “to it” with Sadr. This will not end well for Maliki – no matter what.
Integrity: Maliki prohibits the extradition of corrupt files of the Ministry of Defence to Parliament
Baghdad / Orr News
قالتْ لجنة النزاهة البرلمانية ان رئيس الوزراء نوري المالكي منع اللجنة من أخذ ملفات الفساد التي تخص وزارة الدفاع، واقرت اللجنة بعدم قدرتها على محاسبة وزير الدفاع السابق عبد القادر العبيدي بعد هروبه الى اميركا اثر القاء القبض على مدير العقود بالوزارة.Said the Parliamentary Integrity Committee that Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki prevented the Committee from taking the files of corruption involving the Ministry of Defence, the Committee acknowledged their inability to hold former Defense Minister Abdul Qader al-Obeidi after his escape to America after the arrest of the ministry’s director of contracts.
وقال النائب خالد العلواني عضو اللجنة ان “اللجنة تواجه صعوبات في ملفات فساد وزارة الدفاع كان اولها رفض الوزارة استقبال واطلاع لجنة النزاهة البرلمانية على اي ملف تحوم حوله الشبهات بحجة انها تخص تسليح الجيش وامكانيته وفيها معلومات استخباراتية” مضيفا انه “تم تشكيل لجنة مصغرة اتفقت مع الوزارة على تزويد لجنة النزاهة 10 ملفات تخص التسليح خلال اسبوع ثم فوجئنا بمنعنا من أخذ او تصوير ملفات الفساد بامر وتوجيه من القائد العام للقوات المسلحة ورئيس الوزراء”. The MP said Khalid al-Alwani, a member of the committee that “the Commission is facing difficulties in the files of corruption and the Ministry of Defence was the first of rejection of the ministry to receive and to inform the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, on a file about him suspicion on the grounds that it related to arming the army and its potential and its intelligence information,” adding, “it was the formation of a sub-committee agreed with the the Ministry to provide the Commission on Integrity 10 files concerning armament in a week and then we were surprised Bmnana from taking or photographing corrupt files and direct orders from the commander of the armed forces and the Prime Minister. ”
Sounds like some pretty “hinky” stuff going on over at the Ministry of Defense and Maliki doesn’t want anyone looking into his affairs. Kind of ironic – don’t you think?? What it boils down to – is he’s given some pretty “damning” orders himself and if anyone finds out…his goose is immediately cooked. As opposed to the “slow roasting” we have going on right now.
Doraki: no choice for the political forces, but to go to the National Gathering
Karbala (NINA) – Leader in the State of Law Coalition, MP Fouad Al Doraki, said that there is no other choice for the political forces, but to go to the National Alliance to solve political problems.
He told NINA correspondent “there is no solution, but National Gathering proposed by the President but the same forces that were demanding the holding of the national Conference before the Arab summit have turned now to giving initiatives that contradict with the National Gathering which is the best solution for the Iraqi problems.”
He said “the Iraqiya Slate required resolving Tariq Al Hashimi’s case and Deputy Prime Minister Salih Al Mutlag’s case which is an administrative and judicial case, not political.” /End/
The SLC (the ones talking) dream about a National Meeting being the only option. Keep an eye out – anything is likely to happen this weekend. There have been variations on the 15-day deadline…anywhere from tomorrow through next Thursday.
Here are some Headline Comments for today –
Talabani, Jeffrey discuss political situation in Iraq
Boy – wouldn’t I like to be a “fly on the wall in that meeting”
Arms should be for government, not illegal formations – MP
Take note here folks – for those in favor of gun control…here’s a lesson. Dictators get all bent out of shape when normal people (as in – “we the people”) have arms to defend themselves. It puts such a kink in their evil plan.
Talabani to meet all political components to solve present crisis
This is a developing storyline over the last couple of days. It looks like they are working as hard at a political solution as they are removal of Maliki – he can’t say they aren’t trying (which he will anyway).
Joint action needed to overcome political crisis – Maliki, Talabani
Uhhhh – yeah, good luck with getting “Slick McLicky” to the table…
Freezing constitution leads Iraq into chaos – Kurdish MP
This was just a threat – I don’t see it really happening. Even if he did – I could easily see it unravelling faster for him – than had he not.
