.@AliShroogi @zalali Exactly right: party circle went with Abadi; family circle went with Maliki. But which way do fmr Bath securocrats go?

If Maliki had better relations with other parties he would have remained PM easily. That's the reality. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise— Sajad Jiyad سجاد (@SajadJiyad) August 11, 2014
Next Iraqi PM will face same political culture of corruption; winner take all mentality; and wish by enemies to sabotage whoever is on top— Ned Parker (@nedmparker1) August 11, 2014
Yes all the ingredients are there for a complete collapse in Iraq, but wiser heads will prevail & rebuild it. They have to, lives at stake— Sajad Jiyad سجاد (@SajadJiyad) August 11, 2014
Remarkable that Maliki would stand with only 30 MPs and argue again Abadi's nomination, when he has support of 130.— Zaid Al-Ali (@zalali) August 11, 2014
