Baghdad / Al-Ghad Press:
Former Vice President Tariq al-Hashemi, who is wanted by the judiciary, announced on Friday that his name would be removed from the international list of wanted persons, Interpol, detailing his visit to Iran and meeting with Qassem Soleimani.
Al-Hashemi said in an interview with Al-Arab Al-Jadeed that the Interpol had evaluated the alleged evidence of the fabricated crimes in which the Iraqi Interior Ministry had issued a decision to close the file, drop the charges and delete the red memo. Members including Iraq “.
“There are initiatives that I hope will be sincere and sincere in order to save Iraq with a comprehensive reform movement before the last chance is lost,” Hashemi said.
He added that “Nuri al-Maliki was not eligible for the position he held for eight years without the US-Iranian consensus, in other words, the foreign influence is the one that brought him to power and will remain Iraq for years to come captive to this influence, but time exceeded and because of his failure in the state administration and files The big one that will pursue him throughout his life, Maliki has become, politically, burned paper. “
“In the absence of an Iraqi national consensus, and if injustice, displacement and failure continue, this page will remain open to all possibilities. It is therefore a matter of great concern. Iraq could slide into chaos and more violence,” he said. Which may lead to division, so I urgently call a conference like the Cairo and Mecca conferences to review the experience of Iraq over thirteen years, and agree on the form of governance in the future.
“During my visit to Tehran in March 2007, she met Sulaymani and was attended by the then-head of the Iraqi Revolutionary Guards Corps, Ahmad Farsunda, and my discussions with him exclusively on Iranian influence. The main reason for the visit was after the Iranian ambassador to Iraq, From his inability to answer my repeated questions and questions about the many files and mysterious acts of violence in which I suspected that Iran was secretly operating, such as the activity of Al-Qaeda and the Mehdi Army, and supporting some resistance factions with the requirement that they fight the Americans In Sunni areas only, Qassem confirmed Sulaymani that Iran runs the file of violence in Iraq and has understandings and coordination with all parties without exception and in the service of national security of Iran.
“The arrangement of the Sunni Arab House was unnecessarily delayed, and the call is not new, but it was first launched in Istanbul in May 2012, followed by successive meetings in Erbil, but it did not reach a conclusion and therefore I consider the recent meetings of Ankara to be in this direction, The Sunni Arab House should be arranged in the same way as the rest of the community. “” The Sunni Arabs have an urgent task of unifying the vision of the country’s interests. We must have our own project and our vision of saving Iraq, “he said.
As for the political settlement initiative put forward by the National Alliance, Al Hashimi commented that “it is an orphaned initiative for its future and hope for its success. On the one hand, it is unworthy of removing the injustices that have accumulated over the years on the Sunni Arabs. I do not think there are any real intentions to reform the anomalies in Iraq Rather, it would be necessary to devote these conditions through countermeasures and to maintain political sectarianism, quotas, failure in state administration, organized looting and dependence on Iran. If the pro-Iranian coalition was sincere in its proposals, it would be the cradle of confidence-building measures and the genocide in Mosul. And to allow the return of the displaced families to their homes and to release unrestricted reconstruction budgets, and to put an end to the Shiite Waqf’s office by dominating more Sunni mosques and freeing our children and women who were unjustly and aggressively imprisoned. It would put an end to the terror of the militias and wreak havoc on the land. , And later was a senior corrupt and worked hard to recover looted money, to want to settle.

The Strike At Syria

The Trump administration has had a rocky start. There was the defeat on Obamacare, staffing the departments has been far too slow, the National Security Advisor lasted only three weeks, there has clearly been infighting in the White House staff, and there have certainly been too many tweets.

But that 75-day break-in period has just ended, and the Trump administration can truly be said to have started only now. The president has been chief executive since January 20, but this week he acted also as Commander in Chief. And more: He finally accepted the role of Leader of the Free World.

This was unexpected: He had appeared to say, during the campaign, that this kind of global leadership role was just too expensive. We were tired of it, tired of having others take advantage of us. We could not solve all the world’s problems.

But the strike at Syria had at its heart precisely that kind of global leadership, to enforce the century-old ban on chemical warfare—in the interest of decency and peace. His remarks ended with words that many predecessors, from Wilson to Roosevelt, and Kennedy to Reagan, might have spoken: “as long as America stands for justice then peace and harmony will prevail.”

Explaining the strike, Secretary of State Tillerson pointed to one clear security goal: “if there are weapons of this nature available in Syria, the ability to secure those weapons and not have them fall into the hands of those who would bring those weapons to our shores to harm American citizens.” But then he added “it’s important that some action be taken on behalf of the international community to make clear that the use of chemical weapons continues to be a violation of international norms.” The term “on behalf of the international community” is certainly not one we have previously heard from the Trump administration.

This strike will save lives—in Syria, by preventing Assad from daring to use chemical weapons again, and in unknown future conflicts where the losing side will be tempted to employ chemical weapons, and will think twice and not do it. Trump saved more lives in Syria by his action this week than Obama did in all his years in office.

And the strike will have far wider effects. It was undertaken while Chinese president Xi was with Trump in Florida. Surely this new image of a president willing to act will affect their conversations about North Korea. Vladimir Putin will think again about his relations with the United States, and will realize that the Obama years of passivity are truly over. Allies and friends will be cheered, while enemies will realize times have changed. When next the Iranians consider swarming around an American ship in the Gulf, they may think again.

Of course this was an easy lift militarily: a few dozen missiles, one air base as a target. Yet our previous president refused to do it; this one acted. He did not let worries about the possible Russian reaction scare him off. He understood that this would not end the war in Syria, but he did it anyway. He was willing to act alone, without demanding a UN Security Council meeting or congressional vote. And of course, leadership pays off: he will have strong bipartisan support on the Hill.

Henceforth when he speaks of American conditions and demands, interests and desires, more attention will be paid. Every official in every foreign government has been trying to figure him out since November 8. This week he gave them a lot to think about. He took command, and issued orders. He didn’t draw a red line and then withdraw it, but instead called Assad’s action intolerable—that overused word—and then proceeded to show that when he said intolerable, he meant it.

He added that “the revenge of the martyrs of the province and Iraq also resulted in the destruction of four-wheeled car bomb with a large car bomb in the Chinese sector.
Al-Jubouri concluded by saying: “Our security leaders are a red line and we will not allow anyone to touch them with a word. They are the protectors of the earth and thanks to Allah and their favor. We enjoy security and security. I thank the Iraqi army for its contribution to support the ground forces and secure their air cover.

Jubouri also announced the formation of a committee to investigate the circumstances of the bombings in the city of Tikrit, Tuesday, and killed dozens.

A statement by the Jubouri office that the latter confirmed, during his presidency an expanded security meeting, including the leaders and directors of all security services, that the attack “da’ash” last on the neighborhood of flowers came because of the collapse in the battles to liberate Mosul, prompting its elements to kill themselves and the lives of innocent people and create chaos and strife , But the presence of security forces and the popular and tribal mobilization, and the solidarity of the citizens of the province and their cooperation with them, humiliated “dashing” and broke his fork, and tore his diabolical succession deviant.

He called on the security services to exert all efforts and protect the province from gangs, “calling,” calling at the same time the sons of Salah al-Din to cooperate with the information with the honest security services, and to report all cases suspected, and abide by the instructions of military and security leaders.

The city of Tikrit, the center of the province of Salah al-Din, last Tuesday infiltrated a number of elements calling to the city and attacked by a police patrol and fortified in a school in the neighborhood of flowers, where they clashed with the security forces after being besieged, resulting in dozens of citizens killed and wounded.
