RXXX So, with the 125 that voted for Abadi today, and the Kurds' 71 votes, by my math, that gives them enough to hold the confidence vote in the full parliament. What are we waiting for?
Dr Gann: This is good to see Im sure the Kurds are glad and somewhat excited about moving forward. Thanks [SSSS]
Schiz: Haven't been around much today, so are we liking abadi, is he a good guy or what?
Rev, was thinking, i was hoping to see m arrested today but they cant can they, immunity!...we need to wait for the fool to step down.
I'm just wondering how this works with the old pm refusing to step down, is voting in the new guy simply enough to make M lose his power?
Is it that simple? vote in new guy, old guy loses power, job done, 2 mins later M is in a prison cell or better yet one of the populous puts a bullet through his head, sacrificing his own freedom for the freedom of millions....
Maliki is still PM of the Caretaker Gov't, only when Abadi seats all his ministers and they are voted in by Parliament will Abadi actually be the new PM! Now we have also read that all these ministers have been and mostly selected behind the scenes over the past couple of weeks!
So to me it will not take the 30 days to seat his government! I have said in many posts that I think they will do it very quickly within about a week so they can finally once and for all be rid of Maliki!
We also have another article just released that they have said we will see the fully formed government next week I believe so fingers crossed!!!
Laura: Schiz, to my knowledge...history shows....no dictator walks away...they must always be removed....physically....This one has his "fingernails" dug into the doorframe of his political office...deep. It will take a crowbar....to pry him off, and probably...use that same crowbar...to put...him out....
Your music...you are very creative my friend. Haven't been able to listen until recently as the sound on my computer goes off and one....Creative minds.....always thinking....Thank you for all your posts on this journey, as always enjoy reading what you have to say....And, hey...please stop that smoking...want you to live a long, long time to enjoy your new found wealth...:)..... Thank you Sager!
XXXX: Schiz, I believe Abadi is a good guy... and correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe he is also pro currency reform/monetary reform:
Al-Abadi was appointed Minister of Communications in the Iraqi Governing Council on 1 September 2003. A Shia Muslim and electronic consultant engineer by training with a PhD degree from the University of Manchester, United Kingdom, in 1980, and a BSc degree from the University of Technology, Iraq in electrical engineering in 1975. Al-Abadi lived in exile during the time of Saddam Hussein in London
In 2005, he served as an advisor to the Prime Minister of Iraq in the first elected Government.
He was elected member of Iraqi Parliament in 2005 and chaired the parliamentary committee for Economy, Investment and Reconstruction. Al-Abadi was re-elected as member of Iraqi Parliament representing Baghdad in the general election held on March 7, 2010. In 2013, he chaired the Finance Committee and was at the center of a parliamentary dispute over the allocation of the 2013 Iraqi budget.
Al-Abadi's name was circulated as a prime ministerial candidate during the formation of the Iraqi government in 2006 during which Ibrahim al-Jaafari was replaced by Nouri al-Maliki as Prime Minister.
In 2008, Al-Abadi remained steadfast in his support of Iraqi sovereignty, insisting on specific conditions to the agreement with the U.S. regarding presence in Iraq.
In 2009, Al-Abadi was identified by the Middle East Economic Digest as a key person to watch in Iraq's reconstruction.
He is an active member of the Iraq Petroleum Advisory Committee, participating in the Iraq Petroleum Conferences of 2009-2012.
He was one of several Iraqi politicians supporting a suit against Blackwater as a result of the 2010 dismissal of criminal charges against Blackwater personnel involved the 2007 killing of 17 Iraqi civilians.
Al-Abadi was again tipped as a possible Prime Minister during the tough negotiations between Iraqi political blocs after the elections of 2010 to choose a replacement to incumbent PM Nouri Al-Maliki. Again in 2014, he was nominated by Shia political parties as an alternative candidate for Prime Minister
Buttercup: Schiz, according to lojak a couple days ago, the US State Dept. said that if Abadi was the guy they'd be very pleased, and he also said that Abadi has been publicly in favor of the RV -- so I'd say we're*for* him.
Rainbowrow: IMO, Maliki being the PM of the Caretaker govt.-would be all the reason to throw this Abadi govt. forming into high gear-get the vote-and finally be rid of M. The faster this happens-the sooner M is truly gone
Mike: Here's hoping they get a full CoM quickly, it would completely neuter Maliki in one fell swoop. Defense and Interior posts are going to be the sticking points, but with ISIL and Maliki exploiting the caretaker government arrangement, everyone should see this through quickly.
The only dictator that I can think of that walked away was Idi Amin..
