Nouri the tattle tale

AP notes that Iraq's oil exports are at a three decade high.  With all that money -- none of which he uses for the Iraqi people -- you'd think Nouri al-Maliki could stop bitching.

 Some people want and want and want what they don't have
'Til it keeps 'em awake at night in their bed just twitchin'
 Some people like to complain about every little thing
Some folks just never stop bitchin' 
-- "Why Wasn't I More Grateful (When Life Was Sweet)," written by Maria McKee, Bruce Brody and Martin Etzioni,  first appears on McKee's You Gotta Sin To Get Saved

But Nouri can't stop bitching about the deals made with the KRG.  Again, that's on his lazy ass.  He was installed as prime minister by the US in 2006.  He's been prime minister -- thanks to the US government -- ever since.  He was supposed to have crafted an oil bill and sent it to Parliament to get it passed in 2006.  Then in 2007.  Then in 2008. Then in . . .  Get the idea?

It's no one's fault but Nouri's that there's no oil law.  Having passed no oil law, he wants to whine about the way things are going.

And like every little whiny puppet of the US, he wants to play "I'm telling!"

Reuters reports that Nouri announced today that he yet again ran to the US to tattle and his squealing resulted in that US government saying "companies should co-operate with Iraq's centeral government before striking oil and gas deals with the autonomous Kurdistan region."

The US doesn't control oil companies, not even multi-national ones wrongly seen as "US companies."  If Nouri doesn't grasp that after all this time, he really is a moron.

He's accomplished nothing by being a little tattle tale except looking ridiculous on the world stage.  And right now, at this very moment, Nouri's lower lip is jutting out and his eyes are welling as he contemplates running to the US Embassy in Baghdad to repeat that mean remark.
