Sadr refuses to comment on the withdrawal of confidence from al-Maliki with the deadline set! + Analysis by MrIQD


Happy Thursday Friends,
Well, the news has been really “quite” for the “news” we really are looking for.  Don’t get us wrong, there is plenty of stuff out there, but most of it is recycled or no better than what we were getting in yesterday.
So, the point being, we are not ignoring you, we are just not trying to flood you with tons of news that you can get on other sites, we want to find the gems and comment on only those few, like this article.  🙂
What we read in to this article, is basically Sadr is the kingpin of this whole movement, he is not saying anything to the meeting about his deadline because there must have been a last minute proposal of compromise by Maliki.
Probably what is happening is he is keeping quiet to the media on purpose to let the political blocks consider Maliki’s proposal of compromise.
It is our assumption that in the interest of Iraq and their Constitution, it would be best for Maliki to stay!  Only because it would mean that he agreed to the Erbil power sharing agreement and the Ministers are seated.
As frustrating as all this is for all of us, we believe that the fastest way to seeing the release the RV would be for Maliki to agree to Erbil and move forward with the power sharing agreements, HCL etc.
Well, we’ve chewed our fingernails down nearly to the bone, this waiting and anticipation is certainly stressing all of us out, but as we have always believed… “It is much better to have patience, rather than become a (mental) Patient!”  LOL!!!

URGENT NEWS!!! Source: "Parties in the National Alliance will be on the blocks and Khuzaie Shahristani instead of Maliki"

HAT TIP:  Baghdadiya News

Photo Courtesy of Baghdadiya NewsFolks, this is truly HOT NEWS!!!  According to the source, within hours Maliki could be replaced with either Shahristani or Khuzaie as Prime Minister!!!

This shows that the Political Blocks have had enough of Maliki’s antics and stall tactics, not to mention his high levels of corruptions which as you may remember extends to stealing possibly $Billions of dollars from Oil Sales!!!  Which explains why Maliki was so darn mad at the Kurds for making their “own” contracts with Exxon and other Oil Companies! 

But, lets not get too excited, even though replacing Maliki would appear to be a HUGE STEP FORWARD for activating the Power Sharing Ageement, Erbil and eventually our RV of the IQD Currency, we must be patient!  It could happen right away, or it could happen this time next year!    🙂
