Progress cited on Iraqi Cabinet

http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/2006/WORLD/meast/05/09/iraq.main/story.iraq.pm.gi.jpg
Iraqi Prime Minister-designate Nuri
al-Maliki says Tuesday that most
Cabinet posts have been filled.

More than 90 percent of Iraqi Cabinet posts have been filled and a four-year national unity administration could be completed in a few days' time, the prime minister-designate said Tuesday.

Two top positions -- the Interior and Defense ministries -- will be occupied by "independent candidates" and not divvied out to someone put up by a particular political bloc, said Nuri al-Maliki, the Shiite politician tapped to be prime minister and asked to prepare a government that parliament must approve.

Among the ministries that have not been filled are Trade and Transportation, al-Maliki said.

"I hope that by the end of this week we will complete the process of submitting the Cabinet to the Iraqi parliament to vote for it," he said at a press conference in Baghdad.

Al-Maliki said the positions are being filled by consensus among lawmakers and political blocs. The major groups include the Shiite-led United Iraqi Alliance, the Sunni-led Iraqi Accord Front, the Kurdish alliance and a secular-oriented bloc.

Al-Maliki said the goal is to form a "strong," "efficient" government of national unity with a "wide base to face the coming challenges" in the diverse country -- including ethnic groups such as Arabs, Kurds and Turkmens; religions such as Shiite, Sunni, Christian and Yazidi; secularists; and mixtures of all of these groups.

Iraqi lawmakers aren't disclosing details of nominees for Cabinet seats until leaders of the political blocs hash out the remaining posts.

"Maybe today or tomorrow we will complete the formation of the government because we've already completed the majority of the work," he said, adding that "just a few" positions remain unfilled.

The Cabinet list must be presented to parliament, the 275-member Council of Representatives, by May 22, a deadline stipulated by the Iraqi Constitution. There are expected to be more than three dozen ministries in the government.

The completion of a government so soon would be swift, efficient work for a group of lawmakers who have struggled and squabbled through extended delays.

It has been nearly five months since the December 15 parliamentary elections, and prolonged disagreement over the first choice of a prime minister delayed the formation of a government. Al-Maliki finally was selected a little more than two weeks ago as prime minister.

The Bush administration, led by Zalmay Khalilzad, U.S. ambassador to Iraq, and U.S. lawmakers have exhorted the Iraqis to find compromise.
"Iraq is strategically heading in the right direction now," Khalilzad said Tuesday, according to Reuters.

The ambassador said it was important that members of the Cabinet not be influenced by any of the armed religious groups, Reuters reported.

"I think there is broad agreement that the Minister of Defense and the Minister of Interior have to be independent people who are unifiers and who do not have ties to militias and are above politics," Reuters quoted him as saying.

That's some pretty heavy spin there. The elections were held in December of 2005, so this has been anything but a speedy process. It took four months to come to a compromise that involved not having an Iranian pawn as PM. Now the recent events have been encouraging, at least relative to the prior mess, but let's not pretend that everything before two weeks again didn't happen.

Sure, and lets not pretend that the remaining 10% of the cabinet will be as contentious as the Prime Minister selection. I was chuckling at Dave's humorous post not taking it as a serious comment and responding in kind.

In response, I simply refused to play his game, and chose to answer the question as if he meant it literally, since he doesn't seem to want to be bothered to address the point I made, namely that when the time comes to play that card, it will be you all, the Bush lackeys, who will be trying to make it all about Bush.

you assume way too much and have an overly inflated self opinion.

let me spell this out for you one more time. it's actually quite simple so
there's really no need for you to read into it like you always seem to do.

i truly have no desire to engage you in conversation. in my experiences
with you, said conversations are nothing more than pissing contests and
a complete waste of my time (and here i am *yet again* wasting my
time trying to explain something to you...my penance for being overly
patient with the mentally challenged.)
in every single one of my "conversations" that you have been involved
in, you display zero objectivity, zero tact, use the word "deflection"
way too much and constantly claim some type of victory when there is
no contest going on.

so "sparky", chalk this one up to another hard-fought victory on your
part. you guessed what i was thinking, told me what i thought, used
a couple of 25 cent words, said "deflection" 400 times, laid the
gauntlet down and by god, your stream of piss went WAY further than
mine could ever hope to!!! :thumb:

Where did you see the assertion refuted? If Iraq does successfully put together a unity government, then it doesn't benefit the anti-Bush crowd to make a success in Iraq "about Bush." It does benefit the thinning crowd of Bush lackeys, however. Where have you seen any of the anti-Bush crowd making the potential success of an Iraqi government "about Bush," aside from pointing out the fact that you all are very likely going to make it about Bush come election time?

Nightwish

WTF does that mean? please provide examples.

Sure, I'd be happy to. And along the way, we'll see who exactly it is that has degraded each of our "conversations" into pissing contests.

#1

Intro: Loki claims that Saddam apparently did have a hidden cache of chemical weapons, because our troops have been repeatedly targeted by the use of ied's, including ied's made from hand-held rockets and artillery shells.

Response: Nightwish points out, in a perfectly civil manner, that, by definition, ied's are homemade bombs, made by your average Joe Terrorist in his home, and are not part of a state's arsenal, even though some of them may have been made from pilfered 20-year-old munitions. Thus, the use of ied's in no way suggests that Saddam had hidden caches of chemical weapons.

Result: Loki returns a snide comment, curtly "thanking" me (sarcastically) for my "lesson on ied's."


#2

Intro: Loki claims that our troops have not only been widely targeted by ied's, but also that the use of deadly chemicals in those ied's has been widespread. When challenged to produce a source for this information, Loki claims "his friend who is in Iraq" told him so.

Response: Nightwish points out, again, in a pretty civil manner, a couple things. First, there have been several articles posted in various media about the discovery of ied's containing trace amounts of ricin and mustard gas, but that the amounts were so small and so degraded that they were harmless, indicating only that those munitions contained those chemicals many years ago, and that these articles may have been the source for his friend's "knowledge" of the "widespread" use of chemical weapons against US troops, despite the fact that no such reports have come back from Iraq.

Result: Loki goes nuts, throws a hissy fit, and starts ranting about how I'm personally attacking him, insulting him and insulting his friend.


#3

Intro: one poster predicts that come election time, the right wing will prop up the recent successes with the Iraqi government as evidence of the good work of Bush and the GOP, making it "about Bush."

Response from Loki: Loki whines that the lefties just have to go and take a good thing and "make it about Bush" (possibly the silliest thing ever said on the Planet, which saying something).

Response from Nightwish (still civil at this point): Nightwish points out that the other poster was not "making it about Bush," but instead predicting that the right will "make it about Bush" when it comes time to play that card just before the November elections.

Result: Loki, in his usual decorum, returns a snide remark with the baited question, "So where is your 'Mission Accomplished' statement?" The rest followed the trend of our other discussions, with Loki again flying into a hissy fit about how he can't catch an even break, how all our "conversations" are nothing but pissing contests (we can thank Loki and his inability to maintain civility once his opinion is challenged for that, of course). Need I say more?

No, because you occasionally have something worthwhile to say. Loki, on the other hand ...

You don't know me very well, do you?no, i can't say that i do...

i just thought you were going a little overboard with your summary of the posts on this thread...

loki's been ar0und a long time, and i know what to expect of him...

and i know he's always stratightforward and quite clear about his ideas, even if i don't always agree with him...

loki is not one of our mentally challenged d.c. posters, seriously...

I don't pay attention to every post Loki makes. He may be a perfectly reasonable and rational poster in other conversations with other people. In his conversations with me, however, which I do pay attention to, he has degenerated into a little biatch each and every time, and usually without prior provocation from me. In almost every one of our conversations, my tone to him has remained civil up until the point that he has decided to take my criticisms, challenges and general disagreement as personal attacks and make it personal. Perhaps he believes I wronged him in another life, but I seem to bring out the very worst in him, and for no explicable reason, though I do have to admit I find his rants entertaining at times.
