BAGHDAD, IRAQ (Worthy News)– U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki for nearly two hours on Monday. Kerry received commitments from Maliki to begin the process of forming a new national government in Baghdad by July 1, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Mr. Kerry met with Iraq's leader for nearly two hours Monday to stress the need for a new Iraqi government to unify its Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish communities against the mounting threat posed by the al Qaeda-linked militia, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, or ISIS, that has gained control of large swaths of western Iraq in recent weeks.

The top U.S. diplomat, in an unannounced, one-day stop in Baghdad, also met with top Shiite and Kurdish leaders Monday to press the same point.

"The goal of today was to get clarity," Mr. Kerry said. "Prime Minister Maliki firmly, and on multiple occasions…affirmed his commitment to July 1 when the Parliament will convene." — Source

    Really it is too bad. Bush-Cheney ignited the unwanted war, removed Saddan untimely, dismantled his empire and power structure bit by bit, created a pack of 52 cards to arrest and killed all the bathists from the military and government and hand over the broken empire to the fake democratic goons with empty treasury but capturing almost all the OIL CONTRACTS.

    But now, Americans under Obama are blaming MALIKI for non-cooperating with Bathists, ex generals and Sunni leaders!!!!! and telling them to unite with them sharing power!!!!

    We did same thing many places in the world for the last 200 years!!!!!!

    Obama and Kerry must know one thing; Iraq was dismantled by us, we have moral and legal responsibility to fix it, and rather than passing the buck, we must use our might, if not boots on the ground, missiles, bombs, and drones in the sky to stop JIHADI EMPIRE in the middle of the middle east, at once and NOW. If Obama has no guts, he should call an U.N. Members and like Sr. Bush assemble an International Force to STOP END OF IRAQ.
