On the left is “Walter,” Jeff Dunham’s dummy…

The one on the right is Obama’s dummy.

The two Iraqi leaders vying to become the nation’s next prime minister will get personal pleas Sunday from Vice President Joe Biden to end their rivalry that has delayed the seating of a new government as American troops head home.

Biden, the Obama administration’s point man DUMMY on Iraq, was discussing the stalled politics in separate meetings with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and his chief challenger, former premier Ayad Allawi.

    Has anyone wondered how Saddam Hussein one man, was able to control Iraq and control all its competing internal factions, something U.S. Government and its army has failed to do.

    You may recall in the early days of the Bush II invasion of Iraq, U.S. forces went to many homes of Iraqi government officials and others, and removed boxes containing a million dollars each of tens of houses. Saddam in addition to using force to control Iraq, used oil revenues to payoff government official and competing factions that included clan and tribal leaders to keep their members in line; clan and tribal leaders used payoffs to pay enforcers to internally crush anyone who opposed Saddam.

    What Biden and Obama fail to recognize or disclose, that unless those payoffs are restored after the U.S. pulls out of Iraq, their will be war between the competing factions to determine who gets control of Iraq’s oil. Whichever group controls the oil will control the Iraq government. So all the written agreements U.S. Government made with the Iraq government will be worthless. The billions America spent to pay U.S. contractors to rebuild Iraq buildings destroyed by the U.S. invasion will been wasted; most sadly American soldiers will have lost their lives in Iraq for nothing; and with Saddam dead and after the U.S. leaves, a nuclear Iran may directly involve itself in a weakened Iraq. Americans should expect an Iraqi government coup within the first year after America withdraws—unless Saddam’s bribes and payoffs are restored: and even that may not stop a coup in Iraq perhaps supported by Iran.
