Al-Maliki: Tyrant for Life or Brave Savior?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nouri_al-Maliki
Nouri Kamil Mohammed Hasan al-Maliki (Arabic: نوري كامل محمد حسن المالكي‎; born 20 June 1950), also known as Jawad al-Maliki (جواد المالكي) or Abu Esraa (أبو إسراء) is the Prime Minister of Iraq and the secretary-general of the Islamic Dawa Party. Al-Maliki and his government succeeded the Iraqi Transitional Government. He is currently in his second term as Prime Minister. His first Cabinet was approved by the National Assembly and sworn in on 20 May 2006;...On 26 January 2013 Maliki's opponents passed a law which prohibits Maliki from running for a third term but an Iraqi court later rejected it.

So it has been 'his show' now for over eight years, longer than Bush had or Obama will have.

After being on a major losing streak of land giveaways to ISIS, he is now posturing to be the sole person in world to be the obvious 'winner' of handling terrorists and gaining international fame and rewards. All his problems are due to US & Kurds not fighting his battles. So Russians and Syrians arrive in abeyance.

As someone who has many faces and names, in manner of enunciation as of Bush's "Sad-Damn", "Gad-Daffy", "Ass-Sad", how about "Allah-Mal-Icky"?

Where the West said:
Saddam must go.
Gaddafi must go.
Assad     must go.

How about:

¤ "Allah-Mal-Icky" must go?


Let another one like Ahmed Chalabi run the show.

Probably is the answer.

After being on a major losing streak of land giveaways to ISIS,

Land which in fact was occupied by Iraqi Suni's, so it is not so much a giveaway as a separation.

to be the sole person in world to be the obvious 'winner' of handling terrorists and gaining international fame and rewards

Well yes, to an extent, unless we of course get a perspective on this.

First irrespective of what some of the ISIS members say, there is a world of difference between attacking Shiite civilians in Iraq areas where Sunnis also live, and launching an attack on the West.

There are probably just under a thousand Europeans who have joined "ISIS" in the ME, most of whom did so because of Syria. How many of them come back is another matter. And although there have been some bomb and personal attacks in Europe, the damage caused is insignificant to natural disaster, road causalties, the Basques, the IRA and all of that ilk.

Of course Al Maliki would love to be showered with high-tech weapons, have trained troops to do his fighting for him, and have his ecomony proped up with billions of western dollars. The alternative is to loose a bit of face, negociate with the Sunnis, tell his Shiite supporters where to get off and the ISIS terrorists will have to run for the hills. Come to think of it, it's probably what Israel ought to do.
