In Iraq, hatred in the streets, hatred in the government
Iraq’s Shiite prime minister and Sunni lawmakers hurled insults at one another during a raucous session of Parliament on Thursday, with the prime minister threatening a Sunni lawmaker with arrest and the Sunni speaker of Parliament threatening to quit......
The confrontation erupted after Mr. Maliki described the outlines of the new Baghdad security plan and pledged there would be no “safe haven” for militants.
Maliki also accused al-Janabi of involvement in the kidnapping and execution of 150 Shia near Al Bairaat.
It then devolved into a nasty conflict between Maliki and Speaker of the Parliament Mashhadani where Mashhadani threatened to resign and Maliki's leadership threatened to dismiss him.
Won't someone tell me how 20,000 troops solves this?
