OOTW: Diwaniyah protesters are demanding the withdrawal of the hands of the parties of the new composition of the government and the Supreme Council demanding an apology
OOTW: Hundreds of Diwaniya sons, on Friday, the city center to demand the implementation of reforms promised by al-Abadi and accelerate the decision to change the portfolios and pull the hands of political parties and blocs for them, while they condemned in another demonstration in front of the Supreme Council headquarters in Diwaniya statements launched by the spokesman for the Council against the people.
OOTW: Said activist Alaa Roa in an interview (range Press), "The demonstrations of Baghdad shipped Diwani of a new street and caused the increase in the number of demonstrators who staked a lot on extinguish them,"

OOTW: I'M LOVING THIS
OOTW: THE BRITS ARE SAID TO BE WORKING WITH ABADI TO PLACE THE NEW POSTS WITH TECHNOCRATS

OOTW: Political blocs return the ball to the Abadi stadium after submitting the resignation of minister
OOTW: Maliki knows that recently Iran has turned their back on him. That's a block. He knows that al-Sistani just ordered the popular crowd to take it's orders from the defence ministry which he no longer controls.
The defence ministry is under the control of Abadi so Maliki's dreams of controlling thee crowd are totally gone now. That's a major block.
He also must know that his ministers and minions will resign now out of fear and basically abadon him. That's a block. And he knows that the US is in the green zone protecting the life of Abadi. That's a block.
We have to assume that when the change was originally suggested with al-Sistani's call for the government to resign, that his corrupt machine went into overdrive trying to slow it down, fight it, or stop it all together. He must know that that option is closing fast. That's a block.
OOTW: Maliki's options other than trying to assassinate Abadi which at this point with the US protecting him, are diminishing by the hour. He is losing control fast now and those that he trusted, those that are also corrupt are in a life saving mode. This is why I said they will quickly turn on him trying to save their own skin.
OOTW: We are already starting to see some of this with what was his defense minister wanting to produce copies of his orders from the Maliki administration to cover his own butt. He will claim he was only following orders from the PM therefore cannot be held accountable.
In other words, Maliki's days are numbered and it is my belief that within weeks of the new government being seated , he will be arrested and brought up on charges. The new government will be seated very quickly with little opposition from the corrupt because IMO they will be very busy trying to "fix" what they did making deals, or they will be on the run internationally.
OOTW: Those that haven't run yet, well what can I say. They are stupid and have overstayed their welcome or really did not believe anybody could stop them what with Maliki protecting them. The rallies being held today is the death knoll for the existing government. All IMO of course. tlar
OOTW: Before, with other demonstrations, there wasn't a clear strategy or plan. There were just protesting a government that was self serving, entrinched and did not care what the people thought. This time it is different. The plan is what has brought them together and out in droves.
I think they understand that if they support this movemebnt, that change is coming.
Sadr is a driven cleric and has a following. But this showing will grow now because if other people understand and see that it is possible to force the corrupt from office and that there is a defined reason to protest, they will quickly join in . This kind of ground swell has been known to feed on itself because by and large the cause is worth fighting for.
I believe this protest will last until the job is done meaning those corrupt ministers and officials will resign.
I also believe this was a very necessary part of the plan to accerate the process as many of the corrupt would have stayed in their offices to the bitter end mich like Maliki and Allawi and Nujafi staying in their palaces and offices even after being kicked out of government. Sadr's support for the plan and his part in it, and for Abadi is obvious.
The direction they are going is to crush any resistance to the plan early on clearing the way for the new government. Once a minister resigns, there is no do over for him. As each minister resigns, he is out. I think by Monday all ministers except the 3 that Abadi wants to keep will have resigned. Whoa be to any that hasn't. tlar
