*** clearly the politicians are relying upon the clerics to assist with controlling the demonstrators. The politicians need the clerics to sell the limited governmental changes to the masses and bring an end to the demonstrations. Hopefully all of this is coincident / concurrent with the success of the budget vote, barzani's initiative and the completion of the iraqi banking sector reform project ......................
