OOTW: I HAVE SO MUCH RESPECT AND GRATITUDE TOWARDS STRUAN STEVENSON...HERE'S A QUOTE FROM A RECENT SPEECH OF HIS
"Mr President, Ladies and Gentlemen, my dear Iraqi brothers and sisters, we were greatly encouraged when Haider al-Abadi became Prime Minister and spoke of the need for reforms. But we need to see these reforms in action. I am very concerned about the fate of Iraq.
Daesh has to be defeated but we have to make sure that the Iranian regime does not exploit this conflict to advance its destructive influence. Iran is not part of the solution, it has been a source of the problem in both Iraq and Syria for years." OOTW: wealthwatch.world/showthr...
chattels: ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The Islamic State group (ISIS) earns $80 million a month from taxing people living under its rule, and from confiscating property, drug smuggling and oil sales, according to a new analysis released Monday by global think tank IHS.

chattels: ‹@OOTW› excellent :)
OOTW: The former prime minister should have been arrested immediately upon vacating his seat. He should have been indicted, if not by the Iraqi government then by the International Criminal Court. Critics contend that Maliki is not only guilty of mismanagement and corruption, and the disappearance of 500 billion dollars, under his rule, but that he is also guilty of human rights abuses, owing to his support of Shi’ite militias and his contribution to attacks against enemies of the Iranian regime inside his country.
Indeed, the case against Maliki surely continues to grow. Despite technically being out of government, he continues to wield considerable influence and to use his stolen money for the funding of a private army.
It is already clear that Maliki either willfully ignored or personally ordered six attacks on the Iranian dissident communities of Camp Ashraf and Camp Liberty, members of the People’s Mojahdein Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) during his term in office.
And it may yet also become clear that his sectarian forces had a role in the seventh, which took place just at the end of October and brought the total death toll to 140. The plight of the 2,200 asylum-seekers at Camp Liberty goes to show that mere awareness of the persistent instability in the Middle East is doing nothing to alleviate it.
Even in the midst of public advocacy on those people’s behalf from senior American and European policymakers, the Iraqi government and the Iran-backed militias have consistently stepped up their repression of the camp. Even after the latest attack, the residents have been barred from receiving shipments of food, medical equipment, and materials for rebuilding.
OOTW: These and other activities in the region will almost certainly continue unabated as long as the people who are most responsible for them face no consequences for their actions.
If Camp Liberty is to be protected, if ISIS is to be defeated, and if sectarian conflict in general is to be undermined, Nouri al-Maliki must be held to account.
This would at once address several recent problems in Western nations’ Middle East policies. It would make an example of Maliki in the face of other tyrants and sectarian forces. It would help to eliminate his lingering destructive influence.
And it would serve as a first step toward a set of policies that deal more appropriately and more harshly with other contributors to the problems of the region, including Syria’s Assad and Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. OOTW: wealthwatch.world/showthr...
