A number of members of the Iraqi Parliament called for an immediate response to the Turkish Army and a cease to its advancement into northern Iraq, stressing the need to maintain Iraqi sovereignty, Almaloumah reported.
Fazel Jaber, a representative of the Iraqi Fatah Coalition lashed out at the Iraqi position in this regard and stated that Iraq's position is shameful because it has not taken any action to deter Turkey and to stop its repeated attacks on the sovereignty of Iraq.
The government and other officials must take serious action to deter Turkey and stop its actions in northern Iraq.
Guess who is among the ones making the call? State of Law. Nouri al-Maliki's political coalition. State of Law's Kate Najman is quoted in the article about the violation of Iraq's sovereignty.
Nouri's been preparing for the upcoming elections. I think he's a thug but I'm not an Iraqi voter. He's been out of office (as prime minister) since 2014. Is it long enough for most Iraqis to forget why they disliked him?
He was kicked out of office by Barack Obama. Now the US president is Joe Biden.
In the 2010 elections, the voters kicked Nouri out of office. But he wouldn't go. He refused to step down. For over eight months. It created a political stalemate in the country. Instead of supporting the Iraqi people and their voters, Barack's administration decided to back Nouri. Joe Biden oversaw The Erbil Agreement, a legal contract that tossed aside the votes of the Iraqi people and gave Nouri a second term.
