TLF: Didn’t The Silk Pony Say The Iraq Gov’t Had Done Squat?

Well, now, remember this from only yesterday?

"Although they haven’t done squat yet, I would give [Iraq prime minister Nouri al-Maliki] and the Sunnis at least a few months to reach a compromise. But they’ve got to know there’s a deadline," he said.

While it was nice that he would give them a few months, as usual, he spoke too early

Shi’ite, Sunni Arab and Kurdish political leaders announced yesterday they reached consensus on several key measures seen as vital to fostering national reconciliation.

The agreement by five leaders is one of the most significant political developments in Iraq for months and was quickly welcomed by the United States, which hopes such moves will ease the sectarian violence that has killed tens of thousands.

Iraqi officials said the five leaders agreed on draft legislation that would ease curbs on former members of Saddam Hussein’s Ba’ath party who join the civil service and military.

Consensus was also reached on a law governing provincial powers, as well as setting up a mechanism to release some detainees held without charge, a key demand of Sunni Arabs since the majority being held are members of their sect.

Yup, looks like squat. The measures are expected to pass. Now, if they could just get the oil sharing laws in place, and the infighting in their parliment should subside.

If they could get that done, they would be sharing a lot of cash, and the company that Silky was a member of could offer them subprime loans.
