BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's parliament closed for its summer recess on Monday, lawmakers said, deciding to take a break until early September despite having failed to enact a series of laws demanded by Washington.
If the Iraqi Government is not willing to put in over-time, or any time to get their miserable country together, why should we? This is evidence of a Government, as it were, that needs pressure through real consequences.
We can no longer cry wolf. Iraqis are not pulling their weight because they know they don’t need to.
Unless the US Military can go on recess until September, the US Government should DEMAND that the Iraqi Parliament get their asses back to work. This is just more support to this argument.
