Re Arranging The Deck Chairs On The Titanic


This dude better have a better exit plan than ol' Saddam had and he better be ready to use it pretty quick.


Sources: Chorus grows that Al-Maliki has to go for Iraq's sake

By Laura Smith-Spark and Elise Labbott, CNN
 
 
Washington (CNN) -- There's a growing chorus -- both in Washington and in the Arab world -- that Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has to go if there's any hope of unifying Iraq as Islamic militants advance south toward Baghdad.
While some on Capitol Hill aren't shy about saying his days as the Iraqi leader should come to an end, at the White House it's more of a whisper.
Senior U.S. officials tell CNN that the Obama administration is of the belief that Maliki is not the leader Iraq needs to unify the country and end sectarian tensions.
The officials, along with Arab diplomats, say the White House is now focused on a political transition that would move the Iraqis toward a more inclusive government -- one without Maliki, but which includes Sunni, Shiite and Kurdish factions.
Whatever the action, something needs to happen fast.
 


Things can happen fast over in that part of the world.

If they are floating this through the American Lame Stream Propaganda Machine then you know damn good and well that Maliki had his bags packed yesterday.

  1. He just won re-election in the "democracy" we so painfully set up. According to the way it's supposed to work he is the man for the job -right?
