    Default National Conference To Resolve Iraq’s Political Disputes Dies A Slow Death

    In December 2011, the Kurds came up with the idea of a national conference to be attended by all of Iraq’s ruling parties to resolve the country’s political problems. These disputes have been going on since the March 2010 elections, and have only gotten worse since then with various provinces calling for autonomy, a wave of detentions of alleged Baathists, an arrest warrant for Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi, and an attempt to unseat Deputy Premier Saleh al-Mutlaq, amongst other events. Within days however, the idea of actually pulling off a meaningful meeting seemed dim, and has only gotten worse with the passage of time. With Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki continually outplaying his rivals the Iraqi National Movement there is no reason for him to compromise, meaning there is little chance for a substantive meeting to happen.

    Everybody (Sadr, Kurds, etc.,) are already "softening" to Maliki -- Iraq's democracy and "no confidence" is a joke -- courtesy of Iran, Maliki, and the spineless chimp w/big ears who lives on pennsylvania ave., D.C. area. I say "game-point" -- Iran -- lol !!!
