Double talk is exactly correct.......The Kurds have been jumping up and down about implementation of the Erbil agreements and here we have the NA/SOL spokesman saying not so fast....that this is unfair to all of the Iraqi's and this issue may have to be fed into the Supreme court for a resolution.

Far be it from the fact that a constitutional amendment,(140) says we have an agreement we don't like what it does as it gives the Kurds an advantage. So in that light our little friend here says his parties are not so keen on giving into the constitution that was written 5 years ago and we want NEW discussions on the issues since in the world of politics there is nothing written in stone. Sure.......there are long as we get a better deal. Plus if we can't get a better deal we can always drive this into the courts and let them settle it...........

IMO which derives from this article is that the Kurds are gonna face more opposition on the HCL as it was written. I hope the Kurds have learned a lesson here because they created it by throwing in with Maliki and making him Prime Minister as he agreed to everything they wanted and they believed him even after watching him play politics in his first term..The HCL has been submitted in a different form than what the Kurds had agreed to and now since all the in-fighting over the newer version is causing a disruption in implementing Erbil.........The NA/SOL are driving this into court where Maliki's guys can LEgally change the game..........and this will continue..........The Lesson..........Should not have trusted Maliki.

Yes - all the above posts describe the essence of an rv delay. Maliki's influence extends to the south and east only - with overtures of rule reaching an impasse toward Kurdistan. Talabani has been very ordered and successful in a regional redevelopment program stemming from the very global support that Maliki frequently shuns. I've said it before, there may never be compromise between Sunna and Shi'ia leaders - their idealogies won't permit it. Both are bent on dominance (Caliphate) but with differing methodologies.
