Revbo: I think it's time we all stop worrying so much about Maliki and just sit back and enjoy the implosion. This man is coming unglued, and I, for one, have never enjoyed observing a psychotic break so much. Come to think of it, I've never enjoyed watching a psychotic break at all.
Maybe that's why this is so much fun. Never been big on schadenfreude, but if anyone deserved to lose it, it's this guy.
Lojak:: Well said Revbo, and I HIGHLY doubt Maliki will get any position in govt. I still believe that he will see the light pretty shortly and vamoose.(is that how you spell vamoose?)) lol.
I do agree its kinda fun watching this clown, melt down--hey I'm a poet and didnt know it !
rissas dad: I would normally agree with you guys, but the article this morning of the MPs afraid to show up for the CoM meeting says Maliki is not out of this process and has intimidated them enough that they fear showing up for the meeting which I assume has to do with the new CoMs under Abadi.
Lojak: If you just dissed your former boss, wouldnt you want to skip a meeting too--I dont think its as dramatic as it seems...IMO
rissas dad: thanks lojak, so you are saying this has to do with Malikis CoMs not showing up to a current CoM meeting, and not the future ministers under Abadi? The article did not mention if was current ministers and current cabinet or future under Abadi.
Mainelorax: Maybe this one can be filed in the same place as the reports of large portions of the new GOI being taken hostage the other night. How many sources have stated the ministers aren't there?
or maybe they are meeting in secret so they can get stuff done without Maliki making stupid threats and disrupting. He seems like a homeless guy with dementia.
You never know what he will do next and he could turn violent, or maybe he will just yell at everyone and make them take a different route to work until he's arrested
Tlar: Maliki will have to be taken out along with the leadership on the SOL before this is over. They are defiant to the end and will never reliquish power.
Abadi immedately needs to pow wow with the generals of the Iraqi army asap and tell the guy who is the highest ranking officer in the army that is known to be not loyal to Maliki or his kid, that he is immediately being promoted to run the army under Abadi at least for the next year.
He needs to tell him to immediately remove Maliki's kid and to tell "his" army that they now work for him and to stand down and take no more orders from Maliki starting now.
This new head of the army needs to tell those in the army that are still loyal to Maliki they need to understand that Maliki can't protect them anymore and if they continue their loyalty to him, they will find themselves on the wrong side of the Pesmerga, Sadrist militia and the US and Iraqi army.
The new head of the army needs to recapture their loyalty or remove them of their positions. This will remove Maliki's so called power and reduce confusion. Somebody get this message to Abadi quick. lol tlar.
Mally: Kerry urges cabinet to be formed quickly, story on cnn
RDaddy: Abadi has up to 30 days to name his new COM, so this would refer to the old regime
Rissas Dad: rDiddy I get that. Was thinking it could have been a meeting of future ministers under Abadi. Like if Abadi called those in whom he was considering and they were afraid to show up. To me that seems more plausible than the current ministers under Maliki meeting. Why would they be meeting at all? Lame ducks with bullseyes on them, unless Maliki tried to call them in. Too much speculation with this article. Moving on.
lojak: this was the regular COM meeting that was to happen this am. A couple of the key players, namely Shastriani , declared they werent coming. Its no big deal really...they just dont want a confrontation with the man they just dissed.This has nothing to do with the new cabinet
