Tlar: It's very interesting that these committees have mentioned on many occasions that officials in the political ranks of Iraq are known to be corrupt and have been taking money out of the country (smuggling) and putting it in the banks of surrounding countries, yet they are never named and not one of them have been accused of any crime.
All the investigating committees do is repeat the same old statement: "in the coming days". Well I guess Maliki wants to be sure that these guys have plenty of notice to gather their things and leave. Where are their arrest warrants? Why have they not been publicly accused, replaced and then arrested?
I guess the Dawa party and the State of Law party are above the law. This falls right in line with Maliki's protection of the four State of Law employees of the CBI. Maliki kept them from getting fired and there were no arrest warrants then either. What about Sharistani? Everybody in Iraq knew he was corrupt. Maliki's answer, promote him.

Fast Eddie: OK we see the IMF & World Bank & CBI saying its time we have seen Iraq Parliament say OK lets do it, But the sticky wheel is the CoM & Maliki. Will we get that cogg in the machine to work for the better of their country or do we sit for another year & keep taking BS from these clowns,
That is the real Question because we know Shabibi was ready & he was going to go around Maliki with the float.
So we sit & wait as we have done hopefully it will come soon & help the Iraqi citizens & those of here who are in trouble & are looking for something to change in our favor either this or a job.
D45: It is sounding more and more like the IMF is getting fed up with Iraq. Pushing them is good but it could also turn around and bite the IMF in the rear.
The IMF is not the all powerful entity they think they are. If everyone were to ignore the IMF, do you think they would continue to exist? I liken the IMF to the UN. Both great and powerful organizations in their own minds.
Regardless, if the IMF has the ability to ignite the fire under Iraq's collective b**ts, then more power to them. Just as long as the IQD shows some kind of movement in any direction. Hopefully to our benefit, but any movement is better that this stagnant state we are in right now.
