    *** AND SEE : 44 Iraqi MPs Resign: Who Are They, and What Are the Consequences?

    Posted by Reidar Visser on Tuesday, 31 December 2013 16:05

    http://gulfanalysis.wordpress.com/20...-consequences/

    " That said, the question of the consequences of these resignations need not be as dramatic as one would first think. It is noteworthy that the question of resignation of MPs is governed by the law on deputy replacement from 2007, rather than by parliament bylaws. That law says parliament must approve the resignation of deputies if they resign of their own free will. ( SEE NEWS NOTE / ARTICLE HEREINBELOW )

    To some extent, this may all be a pre-election stunt by deputies who realized they might lose their seats unless they improved their popular image. Still, the Iraqi parliament has to pass the 2014 budget before the April elections. It may still be able to get the quorum to do so without the resigned 44, though Maliki will now be more reliant on cooperation with the Kurds than before. " - VISSER

    Faced with this situation prepared three years ago, the customs tariff law was intended to regulate the indiscriminate import and find the source of flows into the state treasury revenues are important. But the lack of infrastructure and the necessary mechanisms for the application of the customs tariff law imposing postponed to early 2014.

    New York Times: Obama's demands to stop arming Baghdad if Maliki abused the use of the army

    Translation term

    The New York Times on Wednesday, said Obama did what was expected and that by sending arms to Iraq in order to meet the escalating violence. But weapons alone will not solve the problem that took root in the political isolation of the Year and other other components, and undermine the political process, especially by Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. The newspaper said: I've arrived bloodshed to catastrophic levels, where he died more than 8 thousand Iraqis in 2013, including 952 members of the security forces. That was the highest level of deaths since 2008, which refutes the sayings of some administration officials who claimed that "Iraq today is less violent than at any time in modern history."

    The bloody escalation is attributed to the group Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant "Daash" belonging to al-Qaeda, a Sunni group with an active force in the north and west of the country. Group that preceded it, al-Qaida in Iraq, fueled armed actions that pushed the country close to civil war in 2006 and 2007 before Tendhr at the hands of Sunni tribal groups and American troops.
    American officials say that the Islamic state is trying to deliberately tearing Iraq. During his visit to the White House in November, al-Maliki was looking for help Obama, which represents a real turn after he failed to reach a deal to keep a small number of U.S. troops in the country after 2011 to train Iraqi forces and intelligence gathering.
    Over the past week were delivered 75 air missile - the land of Hellfire to be launched on militant camps with the CIA to assist in targeting, is expected to deliver 10 unmanned aircraft in March. The Obama administration also plans to supply Iraq with 48 reconnaissance aircraft in addition to the implementation of the process of the first request for F-16 aircraft. This pushes Congress AC to rent and then sell Apache helicopters to Iraq. Maliki was, and remains at the center of the unrest, uses of power in favor of the Shiites at the expense of the year, fueling the sectarian conflict, and provides a climate that helps the militants to attract fighters.
    American officials say that al-Maliki and other officials in Iraq have finally realized the dangers of extremism growing and the fact that the security approach alone will not bring stability.
    The newspaper added: They say that the Iraqi security forces has recently been more successful against militants and al-Maliki and his government have shown more willingness to cooperate with the year, and in resolving disputes with the Kurds the oil and put a new agreement aims to promote civil peace and social development.
    But with ambivalence authoritarian, it is hard to feel optimistic. The day Tuesday, more than 40 feet Sunni legislator resigned from parliament and threatened ministers of the year to pull out of the government after al-Maliki, the security forces have dismantled a camp used by the year sitters who are protesting the mistreatment and oppression by the government.
    With the submission of weapons and information and advice, the Obama administration needs to put pressure on al-Maliki and other Iraqi leaders in order to ensure the freedom and fairness of elections in April, and an obligation to adopt laws to meet the grievances of the year, they also need to prepare to stop the delivery of arms in the case of misuse or if it persists Maliki interests in preference to the interests of the country.
