Sources in the Iraqi List, information that the U.S. ambassador to Iraq for the owners hinted that Washington is willing to sacrifice anyone in order to establish the experience of a real Democracy in Aera BC.

Thanks for playing!! Better luck next time!! Maliki tried to get Jeffries to put the US support fully behind him….Jeffries told him the US was willing to sacrifice ANYONE for the sake of democracy. This might well be the best news of the last 30 days. If there was a time when the US was “hedging” on the side of Maliki – this phase is OVER!! Via con dios AMIGO!!

Deputy for Kurdistan: the general orientation of the leaders of Erbil meeting is held to speed up the national meeting
A leading figure in the Kurdistan Alliance for the general orientation of the leaders of the consultative meeting of Erbil is to speed up the national meeting held to resolve the current crisis. . Said Abdul Bari Zebari said in a statement today, Sunday, that the withdrawal of confidence from the al-Maliki is difficult to achieve, attributing this to what Talabani confirmed the need to be a consensus among all parties, especially the rule of law on this subject.
Zebari said that the President of the Republic afraid of the possible failure of the formation of a new government, adding that he has two attitudes are different, either a national meeting or gathering the votes needed to withdraw confidence from the al-Maliki.
So they are saying one way or the other – this unity of opposition is going to bring about change. Which is exactly what I said yesterday (in the opening comments of my Blog – are they reading us too ;) ??) This also highlights the two tracks Talibani seems to be on. On the one hand he has wanted a National Conference Meeting by mid-June for quite a while…on the other hand they are moving rapidly to gather the required signatures to “withdraw confidence” from Maliki in the event it is needed.
Uzmatk _ but Talabani ruled out the possibility for an emergency session to withdraw confidence from the Prime Minister
Excluded member of parliament from the Kurdistan Alliance, but Talabani “the possibility of convening an emergency session of the House of Representatives as called for by the Iraqi List.” Said Talabani, in a press statement transported via “news agency Uzmatk” that hold emergency meeting at this time will not be successful because of logistical factors , indicating that “most members of parliament out of Iraq and have the times to return to the country from the middle of this month to say the least, especially deputies of the Kurdistan Alliance and thus, the possibility of completing a quorum at the emergency meeting is very difficult.” The MP for the Iraqi List, Salem Daly said earlier, ” that the parliament will hold an emergency meeting at the invitation of President of the Republic of the vote to withdraw confidence from the al-Maliki.
It appears Daly had said they would have an emergency meeting of the Parliament if needed – Talibani seems concerned about the logistics (Parliament is on break). Again – could be just to keep the other side guessing…could be some real concern. One way or the other – this will get worked out, even if they wait till everyone is back without the “calling of an emergency meeting”.
Here are some interesting headlines…
Coalition of state law, denied the news saying that the withdrawal of confidence in the Maliki government are nothing but pipe dreams.
We’ll see how much of a pipe dream here in the next few days and we’ll see if you’re this smug then!!
Najafi is being subjected to ill, on the track enters a hospital in Arbil
All kidding aside – This here might well be some version of bad news for us. Najafi is the one who will preside over the “no confidence” proceedings in the Parliament. On the other hand – if he knows he’ll get to “drop the gavel” on Maliki he will probably crawl on broken legs to get there!!
Block splinter Allawi’s coalition to defend al-Maliki is a no-confidence “dismantling of Iraq”
Block splinter (as in – splinter group)”, White Iraqiya, or White Bloc or “Mass of White” is made up of about 6 defectors from Al-Iraqiya making a bunch of noise so they can get “more than their fair share” – if they haven’t already. They said they would 2 months ago. Quit worrying – there isn’t enough of these jackwaggons to fill the back booth at your local Waffle House…and everyone over there knows it!!
Uzmatk _ Iqbal coracoid: the withdrawal of confidence from the Maliki personally and not the entirety of the government
Of course – I’ve been saying all along nobody wants to dismantle the whole government (they just want Maliki’s @xx on a stick) !! No matter how many times “White bags (of-you-know-what)” says it’s not just about Maliki – it really is about JUST HIM!!
