UU0127 - We Wait
I come to you today to give you a recent update on the election process and how this relates towards the international rollout of the IQD for Iraq. The news was so overwhelming and just pouring out of Iraq.
This is a time of great anticipation and expectation not only for our ability to finally exchange our IQD but also for the people of Iraq. They too have been waiting but a lot longer than we have. Don’t forget they had more than 20 years with Saddam and then that last 10 years of war. occupation and Maliki. When is it all going to settle down for these people? When will they finally see some resemblance of peace and prosperity?
Could the Islamic Eid Al-Fitr holy day be the beginning of the end?
If you have not read my previous news letter from Friday 7/25 (LINK), I encourage you to first read it. Today's news letter, as in all my news letters, is a continuation of the ongoing saga of the IQD RV process.
Maliki is Still Persistent
We have all by now heard that Maliki issued a press conference this week and lied about a judicial decision in that the State of Law Coalition having the right to form the new government. The judiciary upon hearing this news quickly dispatched a rebuttal stating it was not true and in fact did not even grant a hearing on the subject. Go figure!
Also recently the outgoing PM. Nori Al-Maliki requested a meeting with the recently elected Iraqi president, Fuad Masoum. In the meeting Maliki requested that the new president recognize the right of the State of Law coalition to form the new government.
Seems his game with the judiciary backfired so he has to try to convince the new president.
As you may know the president is the one who formally announces the bloc in parliament that will complete the government by selecting the new prime minister. So in short Masoum rejected this request from the prime minister. I have to add how ridiculous can Maliki be? Is he hallucinating? Does he not realize that rule of law does not have the constitutional right to form the next government because it is not the largest bloc in the House of Representatives? Does he not see the writing on the wall? Seriously, at this point in time I think the new Iraq leader and president are about to question the pure sanity of this man. Just my opinion.
Formation of a Larger Bloc
So now we see a major, major effort being undertaken to form an even yet larger bloc as defectors are now moving over to the anti-Maliki side. I strongly believe we will soon hear an announcement that a new alliance has been formed. An ever larger one incorporating the National Alliance and more. A “super” bloc. All of Sadr and Hakim supporters are now moving into this new bloc. Anyone who was borderline now is seeing the complete insanity being shown in the desperate effort to undermine the election process by Maliki and his goons.
Yes- we are witnessing democracy at its best taking hold. This is exactly the kind of stability and unity the USA has been looking for and it’s all very good.
I do believe this could be our recent holdup (all stalling) in announcing the new prime minister to the public. Basically I see the Jubouri and Masoum now want to dot their “I” s and cross their “T” ’s as a safeguards to ensure this outgoing PM does not stand a chance in hell of having a 3rd term. They also want to satisfy and unite the parties yet even more. Funny how the decent to Maliki is actually the driving force that is slowly uniting people in the country of Iraq. The also want Maliki to formally resign and put it in writing and this time also do it with conditions that are practical and acceptable. Gotta luv it !
Did Maliki Resign…. Again?
So today, Sunday July 27th, the outgoing Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki presented a written resignation giving up the post of the Prime Minister of the presidency to the National Alliance. The document was a conditional abdication of the position of the Prime Minister. I do not know all the details and conditions and whether it was accepted and agreed upon by both parties. I can imagine there is some negotiating to do in this area and this may be also what is taking some time. We all know he wants amnesty and some sort of position in the new government. Personally I do not think he is in the drivers seat at this point to demand anything.
I want now to also clarify questions some readers are having regarding some of my past news letters when I stated there was a plot to possibly have Kurdistan break off from Iraq. Yes – I too thought it was hard to believe since the Kurds could have broken off at anytime in the early stages of the government building process if truly they wanted to.
The advantages of staying a unified Iraq far out weight any decision to break off.
I stated this in my past news because this was the information I received and I believed it to be true and so passed it on to my readers. It was just a plot. It was not carried out. I also said (and some have selective hearing cause they do not follow up and read the rest of my news letters) that the plot was not successful and the shenanigans Maliki pulled with the militants and the “national emergency” showed the world just how ruthless and cunning he can be to gain control of this country of Iraq. Think of all the chaos, the homeless people and killed civilians as a result. This recent militant takeover is all intentional and orchestrated by him. He will not stop an anything to get a 3rd term. We once again witness the attitude in last week’s persistence.
