Saudi Arabia wants to remove Maliki by bullets when it failed to remove him by ballets

    Tuesday, June 17, 2014   No comments

It is no secret that Saudi Arabia and its allies among Sunni Iraqi politicians wanted Maliki out. They have tried since the end of his first term. But he kept winning. Most recently, they expected him to loose the elections that was held on April 30. Instead, he surprised them helping his coalition win about three times more than the Saudi favorites'. He won in a fair and transparent elections. 

It should be noted that Saudi Arabia warned even before the elections that electing Maliki to a third term will mean the splintering of Iraq into three areas: Sunni, Kurdish, and Shiite areas. Saudi Arabia has no respect for the will of the people and for election results. So they used ISIL and its Sunni allies to undo the elections' results. After the fall of Mosul in the hands on ISIL and Baathists, Saudi Arabia issued a statement essentially legitimizing the violence and demanding that Iraq produces a "unity government," again ignoring the fact that elections have consequences. 

One of its allies, speaker of of the outgoing parliament, Osama al-Nujaifi, said this of Mr. Maliki: “We don’t want this prime minister; we reject him. We tried to take him down on more than one occasion.”

One does not have to like Maliki, but must recognize that elections have consequences. When one does not like the results, they cannot use plan be and try violence to get what they want, especially when these countries do not have elections themselves.

In the news, Iraq now is naming names:

while ISIL continues its work: more killing on sectarian basis:

ISIL claim to kill hundreds of Iraqi soldiers, release 'execution' video (2:19)

and the world is re-aligned:
