UU6132 The Storm has Passed
I come to you today to give you an update on the latest attacks in Iraq and how this relates towards the international rollout of the IQD for Iraq.
Today is June 14th and I feel like we are sweeping up the floor in the aftermath of a hurricane….lol…..
Remember in recent past new letters I have stated that this week would be a deciding week for the democracy of Iraq. I also said that quite possibly the Maliki government would try some kind of last minute antics to try to derail the elections process and seat himself again for a 3rd term.
As you may know this past week militants in Iraq gained control to regulate the so-called Islamic state in Iraq and the Levant "Daash", the center of Mosul, Nineveh province (the second largest city in Iraq after Baghdad) and a number of districts and areas in the provinces of Salahuddin, Kirkuk. They were able to do this with the aid of Maliki.
As the militants entered the town of Mosul, has the Iraq army stood their positions (militants out numbered 40:1) this entire situation would not have evolved. Instead Maliki ordered his defensive forces to retreat leaving behind their weapons and military equipment. They did this in order to intentionally provide the oncoming militants with weapons and ammunition to continue the fight and progress into Kirkuk. Once they reached this area they were stopped and are not being rounded up. The situation is now under control and I am told is winding down. Over 1,000 militants are dead and another expected 500-800 captured or wounded. Some have escaped into Syria. .
There are many who look at this as Maliki reprisals against not being allowed to had a 3rd term as prime minister. I believe, as does many politicians in Iraq, believe we just witnessed this devious plot my Iraq’s own prime minister to take total control over his country. We see a definite pattern too with the attempt to seize the richest oil well in Iraq, that of Kirkuk.
Yesterday I watched a news brief on CNN on this topic. I could hardly believe the slant of the news from the Iraq ambassador to the USA. He would not address the real issues of the situation as the direct questions were asked. He just kept emphasizing that Iraq was now a working democracy and there was no need to change the current prime minister. he also said it was not the prime minister causing the current situation. We all know the truth don’t we? So can you now see the outright lies being told.
So if you put the pieces together you can get the entire picture of this latest drama of Maliki and his goons generating yet more chaos and fear in Iraq. This is not new to Iraq since over these last 4 years he has demonstrated an ability to stall legislation and aggrevate civil protests as well as holding back the currency revaluation. This is why this current prime minister must not be allowed yet another 4 year term.
This is why the international courts must intervene and hold this man accountable for his actions and his crimes against humanity. This is why too Iraq judiciary must also prosecute this man for the crimes in the many files on corruption they have on him and his State of Law coalition. President Obama of the USA also in a news brief on this topic stated(I am not quoting) that Iraq will get only limited assistance from the USA on these matters but it must live up to its part of the Security of Forces Agreement (SFA). He was referring to the national defense and security forces of Iraq and how they are being used as political pawns rather than in defense and security of the nation of Iraq (their intended purpose). He was referring to the past actions of the prime minister Nori Al- Maliki. If you read between the lines you can hear the non-supportive tone of his voice for this current government run by the State of Law coalition. I believe we are about to
see a change.
It is time for a house cleaning !
The good news is this week’s ride is over and the mandate of the Maliki government has expired. Who will be the next prime minister and what is the line up for the other key members of the government? I can now tell you only what I know.
There has been no announcements yet in Iraq on the new government. Even the Iraqi citizen awaits the news.
Today is June 14th and it seems the election process is moving forward once again.
Today the House Speaker Osama Nujaifi announced the end of the current parliament and his presidency of the Council of Representatives. He also added, all immunity has been lifted on all members of Parliament and the government as of today.
