US slaps down Iraqi PM Nouri al-Maliki after he accuses president | World news | theguardian.com

The United States has thrown its weight behind Iraqi president Fuad Masum after he was accused by prime minister Nouri al-Maliki of violating the constitution.

As security forces massed in the capital Baghdad, the under-pressure Maliki made the surprise announcement on state television on Sunday night that he would be filing a complaint against Masum.

But US state department spokeswoman Marie Harf said in a statement: “The United States fully supports president Fuad Masum in his role as guarantor of the Iraqi constitution.

The US is likely the impetus behind the slow-rolling coup to get Maliki out of office.  Obama is desparate to try out his notion that the barbarian savages of ISIL will turn back into good little sheep just as soon as Maliki stops “persecuting” them.

This is an even stupider proposition than Bush’s notion that turning Iraq into a “democracy” would solve the ills of the Middle East and defeat the threat of Muslim terrorism aimed at us.

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Even Stupider since Fuad is a Kurd, likely a sunni, in the minority of a majority coalition, and as president can’t take the authority to act on military requirements.

    Maliki, IS still PM, until a new one is appointed, that makes this EVEN STUPIDER for the US to make it public.

    But. . .eh, magic words and shit.
