Nouri al-Maliki has barely had time to get comfy in the Prime Minister's chair in the newly liberated Iraq when here comes Sunni spring to liberate his country all over again.
al-Maliki has been beset by freedom-seeking Sunni protesters for a couple of weeks now, and he's got a couple of questions.
Why are those Iraqi protesters carrying banners with Turkish PM Erdogan's face on them?
Not only that, but apparently those Iraqi protesters are flying the Free Syrian Army banner as well.
If I were al-Maliki I'd be worried too.
Let me spell it out for you, Nouri.
While at some level the Nations of Virtue would rather not deal with any Islamic folks, the truth of the matter is, as even those deaf dumb blind leaders in the West have grudgingly recognized, there's no way around it.
At least not so long as you folks are sitting on all that oil that rightfully belongs to the West.
So, Nouri, we've decided to pick sides. There's a Sunni side and the devil's side, and you're not a Sunni, are you Mr. al-Maliki?
That puts you square in the camp of you-know-who to your immediate east. Yup, the Islamic Republic, or Satan's Republic as we like to refer to it here.
So good luck to you, Mr. Prime Minister. You'll need it!
