Maliki's speech cast in Congress (Democratic victory) instead of Obama?!
Palm - While continuing the U.S. military to complete its plans to withdraw the total from Iraq, where he is expected to leave the 33 thousand troops by the end of this year, are still questions about U.S. policy in Iraq and its consequences and carry pages of opinion pieces in U.S. newspapers and different points of view every day about the next phase of relations, Iraq - the U.S., but will be on the Iraqi leaders and the Americans to clarify these relationships and this is what will look to President Barack Obama when he meets Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki at the White House next month.
He announced the White House spokesman Jay Carney yesterday that President Obama looks forward to welcoming Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki at the White House on 12 December, pointing out that "The two leaders will hold talks on deepening the comprehensive strategic partnership between the United States and Iraq, adding that the president appreciates the sacrifices and achievements of each of the served in Iraq .. which allowed the arrival of this moment, full of promises for American friendship - a permanent Iraqi.
It will be Maliki's visit a chance for the Obama administration to demonstrate its commitment to Iraq through the work on "Strategic Framework Agreement" between the two countries and the expansion of ties outside the military sphere between the two countries will also be important visit to deny allegations that the United States is no longer committed to the stability of Iraq or leave the country to the influence of Saudi.

Says author and political analyst Ammar al-Baghdadi al-Maliki and the president is no other than reap the fruits of the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq, even though the combined political forces wanted to (intolerance) Altdid issue or non-extension .. Immunity or Allahsana for trainers Brass Prime Minister.
Baghdadi said in a statement media: that the state of strife political dominant on the Iraqi scene and behind the non-extension of U.S. forces or granting immunity to trained Americans, even though the Iraqi political forces, almost brings the country's need for the extension, in all respects, especially in terms of security, but not openly so only in their respective boards, and when these blocks of wills throw the ball in the court of the Prime Minister, according to al-Baghdadi, had no choice but to solicit the opinion of the last leaders of the blocks was a meeting at the home of President Jalal Talabani.
It is likely that al-Baghdadi has Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's enthusiastic reception, and unprecedented by President Obama, and expected to deliver a Maliki after a meeting with President Obama's important speech in Congress with a Republican majority wishing for an extension of U.S. forces, could be considered speech (Democrats insist) behalf.
It is noteworthy that al-Baghdadi serious systematic withdrawal of U.S. forces from bases in Iraq towards the Persian Gulf, is a great victory for the main Obama and Maliki, stressing that the orderly withdrawal of the order will enable Obama a lot of his papers in preparation for a second term for the Democrats.
In the meantime, he defended a former member of U.S. National Security Council Brett Macgork for Obama's policy in an article published by the newspaper "Washington Post" yesterday, saying: If we as things correctly, this new phase may be more important than the withdrawal of U.S. forces, adding that this is not the end but the beginning in Iraq, "which will allow normal relations and integrated between the two countries.
However, the analyst rightist Charles Krathomr He said that Obama "failed" in negotiations with the Iraqis to keep U.S. troops in Iraq said in an opinion piece published that Obama failed bought a "diplomatic" to make the Iraqi government is willing to keep U.S. forces, which may result in our loss of Iraq and reflects the view Krathomr opinion of many Republicans and supporters of the war already in Iraq, that the failure to keep U.S. troops in Iraq has meant less U.S. influence in Baghdad, or even the region.
Without doubt, the Obama's decision to withdraw troops from Iraq was based in part on calculations in preparation for the presidential elections next year, especially as it promised to complete the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the country. However, the Iraqi position that refuses to grant American soldiers immunity was fundamental in the end not to keep military forces after the expiration of the Convention "put American troops" in Iraq at the end of this year, which included immunity for U.S. forces.
Of course, the Iranian role in Iraq of the most prominent issues of concern to Americans in the evaluation of relations, Iraq - U.S. and this is confirmed by the Republicans, has made 10 members of the Senate Republicans, led by senior member of the Armed Services Committee with the Council, John McCain, sent a letter demanding by asking questions Obama about his decision and considered members of the Senate that the withdrawal from Iraq would pronounce our enemies in the Middle East, especially the Iranian regime, a strategic victory.
But administration officials do not consider the decision a victory for the neighboring countries, said an official at the State Department's "Middle East" that the Iraqis have proven that they do not want to interfere with Iran in their affairs, even if relations with Iran good, adding there is no vacuum in Iraq because the Iraqis themselves. fill the political, military, and with his part, the writer for the magazine "Time" that the invasion of Iraq, not to his departure, the form of "gift" to the neighboring countries.
Reflected the political views on the perceptions of the American people about Iraq and the survey shows "Gallop" institute this week that 75 percent of Americans support Obama's decision to withdraw from Iraq, while opposed by 21 per cent and the poll showed that 96 percent of Democrats support withdrawal from Iraq by this year, while 77 percent of independents support this policy but it is interesting that only 43 percent of Republicans support the withdrawal, although the former U.S. President George W. Bush, a Republican who signed this Agreement. Over 52 per cent of the Republican respondents their opposition to the withdrawal from Iraq.
He warned executive director of the Institute of Strategic and International Studies in the United States Andrew Barracliti, the misrepresentation of the consequences of ending the war in Iraq, especially in regards to Iraq and said: You must give the Iraqis their right, to self-determination based on the internal politics of Iraq and added that the failure to reach agreement on an extension the survival of U.S. forces in Iraq resulted from Baghdad, not Washington, Iraq now has the freedom and has the options.
