“The Right Man For Iraq”

That’s what Chimpy called Iraqi PM Nouri al Maliki yesterday, but it looks like Iraqis themselves disagree and his government may fall in a matter of days.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki faced a widening revolt within his divided government as two senior Sunni politicians joined prominent Shiite lawmakers and Cabinet members in criticizing his policies.

Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi said he wanted to see al-Maliki’s government gone and another “understanding” for a new coalition put in place with guarantees that ensure collective decision making.

“There is a clear deterioration in security and everything is moving in the wrong direction,” the Sunni leader told The Associated Press. “This situation must be redressed as soon as possible. If they continue, the country will plunge into civil war.”
