Islamic States Revenge Of The Levant Campaign In Full Swing

Major Shia political leaders have either already turned on Abd al-Mahdi (Sadr, Abadi) or have positioned themselves carefully to say they "support" his govt while also creating distance (Maliki, Hakim). Shia leader distancing is a sign of rough times ahead.

Ammar al-Hakim's recent comments are what I call "distancing" or "positioning" without yet being in definitive opposition.

And with Abd al-Mahdi having empowered himself by reconstituting the "Supreme Council for Combatting Corruption" with himself as the head of it, he has taken everything on his shoulders.

Query, Are working electrical grids, like " trains running on time ", a measure of functionality in government ?

"Electricity is a national security issue, al-Khateeb said at the ministry's headquarters in Baghdad, earlier this month.
At the end of April, Iraq signed a deal with Siemens to upgrade its outdated electricity grid.

The first phase of the agreement consists of three contracts valued at 700 million euros ($785 million), according to Siemens. The three contracts include the construction of a 500 megawatt gas-fired plant in al-Zubaidiya in Wasit province, upgrading 40 gas turbines, and installing 13 substations and 34 transformers across the country.

It is part of a $14 billion road map aimed at upgrading Iraq's electricity.

The electricity supply in Iraq varies greatly, depending on the location within in the country, and the season. Most people in the country rely on private generators to fill the gap.

Sadr has repeatedly implied that he intends to change the government. The division will turn Mosul into a field for settling accounts until the local elections are held. However, federal authorities won't be able to organize the elections amid the current security threats and finger-pointing.

Dave  Launch of the disbursement of 400 billion dinars for the implementation of infrastructure in the port project of Faw

The Minister of Planning authorized the concerned authorities in the Ministry of Transport with the powers of implementation and drainage, taking into account compliance with the instructions and powers of implementation of the investment budget for the year 2019. link

chattels  Some have argued that this is Trumps tactic to play brinkmanship on an issue and if things dont work out to back off at the last moment. However, rather than provoking a game of chicken the president often delegates issues to his staff and is not actually involved in decisions. Iran is a perfect example. Bolton has talked about regime change in Iran since at least the Bush administration and has been pushing for a stronger stance against Tehran. Because the president is removed that has allowed Bolton to push the issue to the current crisis. Trump however, while wanting a tougher stance versus Iran has repeatedly said that he does not want to be involved in Middle East wars. That meant when the issue reached a crisis point on May 15, the president finally became engaged and told his staff to back off because he didnt agree with the way things were going in all likelihood because he didnt know what his staff had been doing until then. Iraq unfortunately is caught in the middle between these two countries as it often has been since 2003 and has little say in matters.

A very scary dynamic at work if Trump is delegating these matters, IMO.

Iraq may be a pawn in a larger game between other players.

Our anticipation of a liquidity event out of Iraq may be as exaggerated as Iraq's sense of self importance in the greater scheme of things.
