A tragedy foreseen years too late by the OSD Tsar that thought he could create the next King of Iraq. He didn't choose wisely but he doesn't blame himself. No. He blames America. It was apparent that Maliki was uncoupling the wheels from the cart back in 2011 when he tried to have the Vice President arrested. He utterly failed to get rid of the only enemy he absolutely needed to have killed while resisting arrest. Typical.
The sunni Vice President got away to Kurdistan and how they must be laughing, those clever Kurds in the north, watching the unleashing of islam II.I on poor mainstream Iraqis. It's kind of astonishing that the Truth Ministry actually wrote an insightful piece on the coming collapse 3 years ago. You know them, they hardly ever let the truth see the light of day.
It occurs to me that the next step is almost bound to be an intervention from Elam as it watches the collapse of the Iraq that American power built on the bones of Sumer and Akkad.
Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
