HAT TIP: LJ’s Next Step Skype Room – Posted by The Big O
Well we could not let this Talabani Article pass by without at least “rolling our eyes” and saying to ourselves (under our breath) “here we go again Talabani”… Are you also having a bad case of Déjà vu????…. Frankly we don’t think this is a solution, just another stall tactic as it has become pretty clear that Talabani is nothing more than a lap dog for Maliki.
