Iraq's Government Teeters as US Exiits: Sunni VP threatened with arrest, Shiite Al-maliki condemned. Here we go!

Iraq's Government Totters as US Exits: Iraq's shaky government coalition was on the brink of collapse Sunday, with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki moving against senior Sunni political leaders amid an intensifying campaign by some Sunni areas for more autonomy from Baghdad.Iraqis on the streets reacted with a mixture of indifference, disbelief and fear to the U.S. withdrawal, with some voicing concerns about the future of their fragile democracy. 

Iraq VP barred from overseas travel: Hashemi and Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlak, both Sunnis and members of the secular Iraqiya bloc, have come under increasing pressure, with three of the vice president's bodyguards arrested in connection with "terrorist activity" and Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki calling for Mutlak to be sacked.

Iraqi Sunni leaders denounce PM Maliki

The feuding among Iraqi leaders, largely divided by sectarian and ethnic loyalties rather than real political differences, is nothing new, but the timing of the latest crisis underscores how most view the final U.S. troop withdrawal as validation of America's diminishing role in Iraq and a signal to press ahead with their own agendas.

The breakdown Sunni against Shiite was guaranteed the day Bush ignored all good advice to the contrary and attacked Iraq. It was guaranteed as soon as we left whether we left today or were stupid enough to hang around longer as Republican nominees are wrongly criticizing Obama for not doing. From Iraq it will spread throughout the entire middle east compliments of Bush not Obama.

Bush has created a hell on earth for Iraq that he calls liberty and success with promises to spread it throughout the entire Middle East. He has long wanted a Korea style force in Iraq to secure the peace! We were concerned because we knew that would never work in Iraq or the Middle East! Planting our military in the middle of the mess Bush has created out of the Middle East because of his failed Democratization program would be a Custer's Last Stand on a grand scale!

I still see a total civil war Sunni against Shiite erupting in the Middle East because Bush freed up Iran to instigate it on their end and they are. I still am concerned we will have a permanent presence in the Middle East but feel we will have to largely leave Iraq to her own demise. We will still be there but it looks like Yemen, and the Gulf of Aden will be the prime focus unless Iran gets something going between the US and Iran.

As you know, I talk about it often as I watch Bush's new Middle East (dis)order progress. He ignored Afghanistan so he could use the patriot acts powers to divert from Afghanistan to attack Iraq using the excuse of unseating Saddam so he could get in the Middle East to help Israel establish a buffer zone and establish a new middle east (dis) order or so Israel and Cheney thought. Bush at Cheney's urging made an abrupt shift in policy towards Syria, a shift that has now brought the entire Mideast region to the brink of war and chaos. Much worse than the hell on earth they created for Iraq. Did you ever read A clean Break a 2003 Executive intelligence Review that tells the truth as to our diabolical plans

That plan was put together in 1996 for Israel. They were just waiting for an idiot to come along so they could implement their plan for the Middle East. Along came the life long follower and life long alcoholic loser Georgie Bush. I wish I could say the rest is History but this is still barely beginning and just beginning to take shape. All Bush did by ignoring Afghanistan and attacking Iraq was to guarantee a loss of everything and a complete Middle East and Asian Breakdown.

He freed Iran up to pursue her version of new middle East order by interfering wherever she could while Bush was doing the same thing with his Middle East Democratization program. I think you can see how successful Bush and Cheney were with chaos creating Middle East Democracy program but you are barely seeing the results they created in Iran.

The goal absolutely is to be the country who decides which direction the new Middle East (dis)order will take. Bush started it by attacking Iraq to get into the middle east to destabilize it and start the new middle east order the idiot said God told him to do now it will be up to Iran and Saudi Arabia at least up front fight it out whether this goes the Iranian Shiite way or the Saudi Arabian Sunni way and do not forget Israel!

You know I firmly believe and have said so a million times by now that since 9/11 everything was construed to allow Bush to gain the power he needed to prosecute his new order not just in the Middle East but on the entire world! He diverted from Afghanistan to get back into the Middle East with the goal of setting up a larger safety zone for Israel and going after Iran. Both will fail! It has long been my contention that coming to Israel's aid once they attack Iran will be our in to Iran!

What about the Kurd's who want their autonomy and they do not want to share their oil fields period. Nuri Al-Maliki wants that issue resolved and it will never be. The entire middle east and north Africa and our more than century of interference and exploitation can take the blame for that too.

Bush has created a hell on earth for Iraq that he still calls liberty and success with promises to spread it throughout the entire Middle East Sunni against Shiite. Bush had long wanted a Korea style force in Iraq to secure the peace! That will never work in Iraq or the Middle East! Planting our military in the middle of the mess Bush has created out of the Middle East because of his failed Democratization program is going to be a Custer's Last Stand on a grand scale if we are still there when this breaks open! Looking at the war cabinet Obama has amassed I am going to say at this point that this is going to happen even under a President Obama. Watch out Iran!

A couple of things here Jim. Sadam was in a box after the first Gulf war with no fly zone and all. The country was at that time pretty much secular from what I've read of people's blogs during that period. He (Sadam) was however spending more money on palaces than his infrastructure and things would have collapsed anyway.
As we all knew there will be a civil war now that we're gone. How it will end is anyone's guess. It wouldn't surprise me if some type of alliance was formed and the Kurds attacked for the bulk of the oil in that country. Just to throw a curve ball into the equation.
I think we need to look farther than just labels now. This is about power and money and now that we're gone the "allowance" is cut off.

Yeah Demeur it has always been secular but ruthless or not Saddam kept it in check.

He only lied about the WMD we "knew" he didn't have to keep Iran in line. Well we knew what would happen if we attacked and it is barely beginning to play out.

We knew how it would play out and it is going like clock work. A total breakdown Sunni against Shiite and don't forget Israel.

Also as you pointed out "the kurd's, they still want a free Kurdistan which is parts of Iraq, Iran, and Turkey and that'll never happen. A mess that's what we have and we knew it!
