Maliki’s failed a good thing!

Iraq PM ousted!...


After lashing at Obama’s administration for not interceding with forced action, the world now sees wisdom. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s departure from office is most welcome news. The Obama administration and, even more, Iraqi politicians are to be commended for seeing the need for a new government given that Mr. Maliki’s parochial, sectarian and autocratic ways were at the root of the dissolution of much of the Iraqi army and, therefore, the successes of the Islamic State extremists in recent months.
