Next Wednesday the Fed court will make their ruling on if Parliament can be dissolved.

If they don’t, both the UN & US will be stepping in & get the govt formed.

Agreed Kaseyko, if they don’t, the US and UN will. This is not continuous kick the can. Fact is the resolution is in place, just eliminating the last hold of the bad guys.

And don’t forget the Kuwait LIE strategy. For all we outsiders know, the US/UN could swoop in tomorrow and clean house, appoint Kazemi, set up the Caretaker Govt.; and we could rv next week.

How did Sistani’s intervention prevent Iraq from sliding into war again?

When an announcement by a cleric in Iran pushed Iraq to the brink of civil war last week, only one man had the power to prevent it: the 92-year-old Iraqi Shiite cleric, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, who once again proved to be the most powerful man in his country.

Al-Sistani did not issue a public comment regarding the unrest that erupted in the streets of Iraq. But government officials and informed Shiite sources say that only Sistani’s stance behind the scenes defused the disaster.

The events of the bloodiest week in Iraq in nearly three years show the limits of traditional politics in a country where the power to start and stop wars lies in the hands of clerics, many of whom have ambiguous ties to Iran, the neighboring Shiite power.

Iraqis who took to the streets blamed Tehran for fueling the violence, which began after an Iranian-based cleric denounced the popular Iraqi cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and instructed his followers, including Sadr himself, to obey the order of Iran’s supreme leader.

Sadr’s followers tried to storm government buildings. By nightfall they were driving around Baghdad in pickup trucks brandishing machine guns and rocket launchers.

Gunmen believed to be members of a pro-Iranian armed faction opened fire on the Sadrist protesters who were throwing stones. At least 30 people were killed.

Then, within 24 hours, it ended as suddenly as it began. Al-Sadr appeared on television and called for calm. His armed supporters and unarmed followers began leaving the streets, the army lifted a night-time curfew and a fragile calm fell over the capital.

Seeking to understand how the unrest erupted and how it was quelled, Reuters spoke with nearly 20 officials from the Iraqi government, the Sadr movement, and rival Shiite factions seen as pro-Iran. Most spoke on condition of anonymity.

All the interviews pointed to decisive behind-the-scenes interference by Sistani, who has never held an official political position in Iraq but is considered the most influential cleric in Najaf, the Shiite religious center in Iraq.

According to the officials, Sistani’s office has sought to make it clear to Sadr that unless he stops the violence of his followers, Sistani will denounce the unrest.

An Iraqi government official said, “Sistani sent a message to Sadr that if he did not stop the violence, Sistani would have to issue a statement calling for the fighting to stop – and that would make Sadr look weak, as if he had caused bloodshed in Iraq.”

Three Shiite figures based in Najaf and close to Sistani did not confirm that his office sent an explicit message to al-Sadr. But they said it was clear to Sadr that Sistani would speak soon unless Sadr stopped the unrest.

A pro-Iranian official in the region said that without Sistani’s office, “Muqtada al-Sadr would not have held his press conference” that stopped the fighting.


Sistani’s intervention may have averted more widespread bloodshed for the time being. But it does not solve the problem of maintaining calm in a country where much of the power lies outside the political system, in the hands of Shiite clerics, including clerics with close ties to Iran.   link
