  1. This guy needs to be put into a wet pig skin, stitched up tight and let dry.
  2. There may be a mass of people running to the banks to exchange dinar for dollars before the 14th, this may be a good thing, gets more dinar back into the bank. If this is successful, then maybe the rest of Iraq? What will Iraq gain by stopping the sale of dinar in Kurdistan?
  3. Iraq is now an Iranian colony

    Iraq news play pause Video: Makili claims Kurds, Sunnis behind Mosul's fall November 01 2017 12:20 PM Nouri al-Maliki Former prime minister Nouri al-Maliki continues to spread lies in order to clear his name and prove that he and his masters in Iran have not been involved in Mosul’s fall. Erbil, al-Naqshabandiya group, Baath Party and Arab tribes have been behind the fall of Mosul in ISIS’ clutches in a Sunni-Kurdish conspiracy, al-Maliki said in a televised interview. He claimed that Kurds and Sunnis had agreed to withdraw before fighting ISIS. The former prime minister attempts as usual to cause confusion. He sometimes announces that he is not directly responsible for Mosul’s fall. At other times, he spreads lies ISIS’ social media pages used to promote. Earlier, Maliki claimed that a massacre had been carried out in al-Saqalawiya city in Anbar Governorate. In June, the parliamentary legal committee requested the attorney general to reopen the issue of Mosul's fall in ISIS' grip, a move that will lead to the trial of Iraqi officials, including Maliki. The Iraqi Parliament voted in 2015 on this issue and referred it to the judicial system to take the necessary measures.
  4. Jabouri, Maliki continue Iraq devastation, seek further sectarianism October 27 2017 12:43 PM Jabouri, Maliki seek to turn Iraq into sectarian state Iraqi Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri has recently stepped up his efforts to appease to the Iranian Mullah's regime and its agents in Iraq, which was apparent in most of his actions and announcements. Lately, with the cooperation of the former prime minister Nouri al-Maliki, Salim al-Jabouri is attempting to topple the weakened Iraqi federal democratic system. This comes as the parliament is implementing a sectarian quota system to the new electoral commission. By implementing this sectarian system, observers assert that Shiites will dominate the Parliament and the government to guarantee a much stronger Iranian influence in Iraq. They added that these desperate moves come as the Shiite ruling class is trying to save its waning influence following the Erbil-Baghdad crisis that followed the Kurdistan independence referendum on 25th of September, in which the majority of Kurds voted to be an independent nation. Baghdad's government is also trying to reinforce its power, as its Iranian Militias in Iraq and Syria (IMIS) and its security forces are currently rivaled by the strong Peshmerga in the disputed governorate in Kirkuk. But experts say that Jabouri-Maliki's sectarian quotas project also aims to hit the emerging calls for a Sunni state, as Sunni forces in Iraq are working on advancing their project to establish an autonomous Sunni region. Sunnis see the Kurdish referendum as an opportunity to achieve self-autonomy in their provinces as well. The spokesman for Arab tribes in Ninevah province, Mouzahem al-Huwait said, “Arab Sunnis are facing killings and displacement, and the government has offered them nothing while they were displaced.” He added, “Kurdistan is on the verge of creating its own state, and we will create a Sunni region as well.” Asked whether the Sunni project is similar to numerous, previous calls for independence from Iraq, Huwait said, “Sunni sheikhs in Mosul started contacting their counterparts in the western areas — namely in Anbar, Ninevah, Salahuddin and Diyala — to bring viewpoints on the issue closer. The next step will be to put pressure on the Sunni political forces in the government to adopt the project.” He said, “The majority of Sunni forces opposing the government and boycotting the political process are motivated about the Sunni independence project.” Experts assert that the Shiite ruling class in its pursuit for power, undermined Iraq's sovereignty by turning themselves into puppets for the Iranian Mullah's regime. In order to appease Iran, they destroyed Sunni territories and that will lead eventually to the re-emergence of ISIS, experts warned. These practices also led to the separation of the Kurdish nation from Iraq, due to the Iraqi government negligence and oppression to them. They concluded that the international community and Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi are required to put a stop to these corrupt politicians so Iraq can go back to normalcy once again
  5. Wow, maybe we need this Article 226 here in the US.....the jails would be full.
  6. Iraqi Court Issues Sentences to Officials Involved in Corruption Print Email Basnews English 23/08/2017 - 23:15 Iraq ERBIL — Iraqi court has issued 26 prison sentences to high-ranking Iraqi officials in a push to eliminate corruption and fraud in the country. On Wednesday, the Prime Minister of Iraq, Haider al-Abadi, announced on his Twitter account that his government has taken crucial steps to stop corruption in the country, and has already arrested and sentenced a number of former and current Iraqi officials. The sentences reportedly range from six to fifteen years, Iraqi News reported. Among the sentenced officials is the Director of Transparency and Corruption Prevention in the Integrity Commission, Abdel Ilah Khadim al-Aboodi, who was given a 15-years sentence. Also Bruska Noori Aweys, former Defense Ministry Secretary General, sentenced to 14 years in prison. Former Defense Minister, Hazim al-Shalan, who was sentenced to 13 years in prison and Mohsin Shlash, former Minister of Electricity, sentenced to 7 years in jail. The General Manager of the Department of Finance, Abdel Amor Baker Khathim, was also among the people, who received a sentence of 15 years. The previous minister of agriculture, Sawsan Al Sharifi, was also convicted and sentenced to 5 years in prison, while former transport director general Faisal Naji Malo was jailed for 7 years. Baghdad launched a series of investigations into alleged corruption schemes within the Iraqi government, after Iraq was ranked 166th out of 176 countries in the Transparency International's Corruption Index.
  7. Maliki still spearheading rampant corruption, destruction in Iraq August 20 2017 05:15 PM Nouri al-Maliki Any hope of a unified Iraq enjoying stability and security has faded due to the corruption and sectarian polarization spreading in the country as one of the legacies of former prime minister Nouri al-Maliki. During Maliki's eight-year term, ISIS seized large swathes of Iraq. Moreover, Iran's clout began to increase in the country, dominating military, economic and political sectors. Even after he was forced out of power, devastation and corruption are still rampant. According to economic researcher Hedab Faleh al-Kubaisi, Maliki has established a state of economic ruin. Recurrent setbacks Hadeb said that during Maliki's eight years in power, Iraq has seen recurrent setbacks, making it go back 200 years in time. In June, it was reported that Maliki allocated billions of dollars for buying weapons, but nothing was bought. It also turned out that under Maliki, the government has bought some of these weapons at prices higher than they deserve. Moreover, some of the weapons were worn out or used in WWII. The widespread corruption has led to the Iraqi Army's defeat and fall of Mosul in ISIS grip in 2014. Mosul's fall What is surprising is that in just a matter of days ISIS has defeated Iraq’s US-trained security forces, which count more than 1 million personnel in their ranks and have received close to $100 billion in funding since 2006, in Mosul. Analysts said that during Maliki's tenure, the security sector, which had an annual budget greater than the budgets for education, health, and the environment combined, was subject to minimal oversight. They noted that soldiers were enrolled and paid monthly salaries without reporting for duty. Overpriced and faulty equipment was procured using the laxest standards. Corruption and hunger for power distracted Maliki from emerging crises — like the rise of ISIS — and laid the groundwork for what is now taking place, they added. Trial demands As a result, many politicians have demanded Maliki's trial over Mosul's fall. In 2015, an Iraqi parliamentary panel called for the former prime minister and dozens of other top officials to stand trial over the fall of the city to ISIS three years ago. In June 2017, the parliamentary legal committee requested the attorney general to reopen the issue of Mosul's fall in ISIS' grip, a move that will lead to the trial of Iraqi officials, including Maliki. In addition to this, Maliki has run a sectarian government during eight years in power that alienated Sunnis. Sunnis look to Maliki’s period as their worst ever, during which they were hugely persecuted and suffered bloody crackdowns, observers said. Observers noted that under Maliki, Iraq witnessed political decline culminating in Mosul's fall in ISIS' grip with the terrorist group occupying nearly third of the country's territories. What is even worse is that Iraq also has seen an economic decline under the former prime minister, they added. Corruption, siphoning off funds Under Maliki, $500 bn of Iraq's public funds have been plundered and siphoned off, al-Kubaisi said. She also noted that $10 bn has been spent on illusory projects. Maliki has undermined the agricultural, industrial and trade sectors in Iraq, she added. According to observers, as Maliki continues to cause devastation in Iraq, the only way to stop his satanic actions is to either arrest or expel him from the country. As long as the former prime minister is in Iraq and exercised power behind the scenes, bloodshed, sectarianism and terrorist militias will remain in the country, they noted. Maliki is not an individual, but he is a fully-fledged political institution, which its corruption is deeply rooted in all sectors of Iraq, they further stated. Many analysts have raised these questions: Why was Maliki behind the deteriorating political, economic and security situation in Iraq? Why did he lead the destruction that was not even caused under the reign of Mongols and Persians in Iraq? Who is using Maliki as a puppet to divide the country? However, many of answers remain unknown.
  8. If they have all of these charges, he needs to be arrested, put in jail, and tried before he can escape to Iran.
