Two months after elections, Iraq's new government finally began to take shape Wednesday as lawmakers elected as president a Kurdish leader who promised to represent all ethnic and religious groups. Ousted dictator Saddam Hussein watched the session, broadcast across the country, from his prison cell.
Born in 1933, Jalal Talabani joined the Kurdish activist movements at the age of 13. He then ran up through the ranks of the Kurdistan Democratic Pary until he became the leader of the Kurdish Peshmerga Forces in the begining of 1960s.
It's not like me to watch political discussions as I always find them boring not to mention all the hypocrisy they usually include. And when the discussion is held with people like the Sadirists participating like they are really politicians as the case is in the interim National Iraqi Assembly, my feelings of boredom and resentment are even bigger.
This morning marked another turning point in the history of Iraq when the elected Iraqi National Assembly publicly elected and approved the new president of Iraq and his new deputies.
I personally welcome the decision of choosing Mr. Talbani for this position because this step proves again that Iraqis are willing and working hard to bridge the gap between the different components of the Iraqi nation and to overcome the differences and disputes among them.
Congratulations to the Iraqi people. Jalal Talabani has become the first Kurdish president in Iraq's history (unless I missed some history lessons during school). I predicted Talabani to become the president since after the parliamentary elections. I actually wanted him to be the president
More than a month passed and we didn?t have our elected government yet, but guess what, we don?t care, actually?..we are waiting for the announcement of the new Prime Minister name very anxiously, but between Mr. Alawy or Mr. Jaffary we are happy for any one of them to be the next P M, both of them are more than excellent choice for the position. And its not me only saying that, all the Iraqis who are taking a role in rebuilding the country had started reactivating their business for the coming period and I am posting this article from Dubai doing some business for the company I work to preparing ourselves for the coming opportunities and by coincidence I met other Iraqi friends from other companies here doing the same.
He pulled off & left the car to fetch a mechanic. As he walked tens of meters away from the car, it exploded. He returned back to the scene, shouting & wailing, declaring that the car was his. He was jailed by the Americans and, later, transferred to an Iraqi police station. And I'm ready to take you to meet him so you can hear the full story."
we should pull our troops from every country that is not willing to supports other countries' security.Posted by jcrue at April 7, 2005 06:43 PM
I was kinda wondering the same thing. Some of the countries who were freed by the US (SKorea) are not being "helpful" (in SecDef Rumsfelds lingo). I find it amazing the short term memories of these countries.Posted by Toni at April 8, 2005 02:35 AM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(2) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
