10-21-12 LoriC: The Integrity Commission confirmed our suspicions this morning in a huge way. There investigations so far have shown that Shabibi was removed because he wouldn't give the GOI $63 billion so Maliki could fund operations with Iran & Syria and that Shabibi was nothing more than a "victim" of those who are trying to take control of the CBI.
So, Shabibi is looking out for the CBI (and the country's) best interest and gets temporarily removed and investigated for it. This will certainly prove to be Maliki's downfall, which is a great thing for us.
It has also brought a lot of negative attention to the fact that the IQD value remains low, which is hurting the country. Maliki has just made some powerful enemies with economic powers and he will eventually be neutralized so the CBI/IMF can move forward without funding a dictator.

10-21-12 Uncirculd: You have to think how can he continue to take over all entities when he is totally an illegal PM. Because he is not a PM at all, he's a dictator. He does as he pleases and parliament is just a think tank and spy organization for him.
If Maliki had any intention at all of a power sharing government, we would not be here waiting 2 years later for the rest of the government to be formed. He would be building. If, they have a national meeting, what will it consist of. Maliki doesn't want pre conditions. Such as, name the ministers, implement Erbil, etc.
He wants to go and have "ALL" the blocs say iraq is a plural government and we are all happy, put money in my country.
No incentive for investors, just come to invest in Iraq. Get blown up, and any contracts you sign can be changed at his will.. Investors are leaving. There was an article about Exxon wanting out of the region, but I am not sure what they're talking about. No quote here.
Maliki said he wanted to replace Exxon with a Russian company. Maybe that is how he is negotiating his arms deals with Russia. Or maybe Russia is going to pull one on him.
Russia has to know what an **** Maliki is. Trying to buy arms when he knows good and well he needs approval. Oh yeah, not to mention, he does not even look at himself as PM but as the supreme to be able to buy arms as he wishes. He is the supreme not the parliament.
That article came out last week. It does end folks. But ya gotta ask, WHEN? I just hope it is soon. He may spend all the money in the CBI and this RV won't be sustainable. He's that ****, especially when one of his thugs said it should be 10 more years before deleting zeros.
By then, Iraq will have lost all investors and just be selling oil, since he does not have the knowledge to make money just spend it.
So, we see Shabibi knows first hand the ways of a dictator. Saddam executed his father who spoke out against dictatorship. He knows it when he sees it. And then, can you imagine Shabibi in one of Maliki's prisons? Many don't leave, and are tortured to death.
Many are arbitrarily arrested who just happen to oppose Maliki, like Shabibi. He's has taken his wanna be ambitions of dictatorship to the level where it will be difficult to stop him. There is no way he can be stopped as long as he is allowed to continue as an illegal PM. He's doing it. He finally did it.
He took the CBI over. What is left? He has the oil, the services, the armed forces, a private army, and mercenaries. Everything that Maliki is, he has accused everyone else of. Corrupt to the core.
