  1. No. He was a 'green card' holder (permanent resident). But, he was a contributor for Washington Post since he moved to the US and was living in DC I believe for the last few years! Some of his works were done in criticizing Bin Salman's policies and published by WP! Anyhow, US is getting involved because of the expectations from ppl and governments across the globe... the so called champion of HumanRights and a country who bow-down to Oil and dollar when it comes to its Arab and Wahabi allies... but then goes and imposes sanctions on countries for lack of human rights and harsh political system... when things like this surface that is totally uncontrollable and cannot be lied about, so they find a way for these hypocrites to still say something but to cool down things and cover up for their allies such as terror-sponsor Gulf allies, Alqaida and extremist groups in Syria, Kings and monarchs, coup leaders and military generals who place the entire nations under their heavy military boots! Trump and close friends already announced that they have very good and solid relations with Saudi Arabia, they need it against "terrorists" (?) and that business is done as usual because too much money is involved to care for a journalist, expose terrorist activities, or question a tyrant's behaviors against his nation...
  2. Ws sis, That is true and that is how it should be... You feel like that, I feel and believe that way, and many more ordinary ppl who are not part of governments or holding a state position do as well! But, in the 'real' world that is NOT how it is being done and not working that way.. state/government institutions often look for bigger gains and calculate their gain/loss on the basis of their interests... for example during Iran-Iraq war 'Iran' under the leadership of Imam Khomeini bought their weapons and other needs for urgent needs, nobody cared if the providers were baby-killers, "dhalemeen" or tyrants. Iraq being in urgent need of electricity might turn to any neighbor who could provide for lesser cost. BTW: many Muslims, including Shia Muslims, including our families are going to Hajj and Umrah knowing that the money they spent, a lot of them are contributing to the economy of Saudi Arabi.. a country who aided and sent terrorist organizations for decades to kill Muslims and sabotage their security from Afg to Pak, from Eastern China to Lebanon and elsewhere, aside from the war in Yemen... My point is that there are things and there are times that an individual, a state, a government, they all have to deal with tyrants for different reasons even if it helps the tyrants indirectly!
  3. Was he possibly the "Mujtahidd" and possibly Israel who now has close connection with Saudis helped in exposing him? Else the known Jamal was no big deal...even if he knew too much! The funniest thing I read today comes from 'Arab losers' who have no dignity and no shame! sellouts! CNN: "Saudi Arabia has found support in a number of Arab allies, including Oman, Bahrain, Jordan, Lebanon, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt, which all put out statements Sunday saying they expressed solidarity with Saudi Arabia. The Palestinian Authority also put out a statement of support." Ohh yea, Saudi is hit with a natural disaster or some kind of big terrorist attacks, waste no time to express solidarity! Expressing solidarity with a state who is 'accused' of sending 15-men to chop a journalist into pieces, in a consulate, in a friendly country? CNN Also reported that Saudis are "preparing a report" that indicates that "interrogation went wrong" and Jamal was killed [accidentally] and will later present that version of report to the media... for the past few days they are working hard to draft such a news... especially after Turkish investigators claimed that they found evidence of murder in the consulate.
  4. Ws sis, I don't understand what is the connection between buying electricity and 40 kids killed in Yemen? Kids are killed every day and countries are destroyed by Arab tyrants, European nations, Americas, and other countries... but still business is done between states, unless they are at war! You feel sorry for Yemeni kids, lets pray instead of cancelling business deals, some Shia leaders, countries, groups send some aids to Yemeni children.. money, food, medicine and etc.. protesting and chanting or burning flags all day, won't help any kid in Yemen!
  5. I hope Imran distances Pakistan from Saudis and restrict the Takfiri ideology and Saudi puppets in the country!
  6. Why is it a big deal for some ppl here? Iraq buys electricity, so what? Electricity is not that huge where it will turn Iraqis into little slaves of Saudis.. today, they buy it, tomorrow they might stop and turn somewhere else. And I don't understand why on everything Iran is brought up and compared, especially by the OP? Iran does business with Europe so we do with Saudis. You are not living by Iranian standards.. Iraq is an independent country and if it makes mistakes, it is the problem for Iraq. By the time someone is questioning Iraq's wrong move, for example in this case, then there must be too many Iranian-related reasons.... The problem some ppl might see here is that Saudis did support evils like Saddam, and after that actively participated and provoked Sunni-Arabs in the civil war, then they (Gulf states/Turkey) started the ISIS drama and massacred thousands of Iraqis in the process.... but after all if Iraq needs electricity and buys it from Saudis, I don't see a big problem... But stop making fitnah on everything and compare Iran on all levels with every single issue... Why there always be a bad guy (Iran) in your stories? Iran did not adopt Iraq to be either responsible for all its problems/expenses or else, Iran is a bad father and Iraq is now turning to its enemies! Iraq as a whole should decide and take responsibility for its foreign and domestic problems... If Iraqis (now) think that Saudis and all other little monafiq-puppet Gulf states are good business partners after all they did to Iraq, then be it, good for you! Tomorrow empower Abubakar al-Baghdadi and Saddam's daughters and make them the prime minister and president of Iraq, if you think it is good for Iraqis without any logical explanation.. .. and if you think that is the better option in confronting Iranian influence! That is right you might anger Iran by doing so, but you forget all about your own dark past with these ppl and how you were abused and massacred by such individuals/groups...
  7. ^I don't believe it. You can easily buy Muslim ministers but not Israelis. He was probably sharing some information on energy sectors that benefited both countries and maybe the government of Israeli at the time knew about it.... Israeli government and officials are full of lies, bluffs, and deception. That is their policy all these years.
  8. ^Like I said, countries who are suffering from wars and recovering militarily and economically, it is hard for them to avoid all these issues (which I consider them small). Look at Syria, like Iraq, today, the country is not Algeria, it needs all the help it can get from Russia/Iran/Hezb and others, and in the process these groups and countries might try to look for specific agendas, but for Syrians at the moment and even years after war is over is not necessary to jump up and down and chant against enemies (of course) on one hand and also sideline its allies for some influence or interference reasons, and try to live by itself, not possible, not wise and not beneficial. Iraq is not a dictatorship anymore, Iraq is not ruled by a monarch, it is [maybe] we could call it a mini-democracy or in the process.. Iraq, Afg, Tunisia, or any of such countries who try to hold elections and choose their governments with 100s of problems in constitution, in educational system, fighting corruption, these problems will exist whether you like it or not. You cannot change from the top to bottom overnight (of course unless you bring a dictator) to rule. USA, Britain or some other western countries who exercise such forms of governance, it took them centuries to have a good democratic system, and even until today they have issues with their governments, even with the laws in placed. Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, India and some other developing countries who go through elections and try to involve ppl in choosing their governments, and they did not have major wars or problems for decades now, they still struggle to fight corruption, build up their economy, stop other countries interfering in their affairs, or to appoint {best Presidents, best Prime Ministers, best Parliament, honest rulers} or even having a very good constitution, or law and order or as you said, fixed from to bottom. So, lets not expect that from Iraq! My point is that, for some problems, you cannot blame Maliki or Alawi, Iran or the US, Saudi or Turkey, a lot of problems from what Iraq been going through is just natural.. for ordinary ppl is just an excuse to blame at least some ppl or countries! You might witness again in next few years, groups having problem with each others, making new alliances, ppl not satisfied, Kurds will demand something, poor will demand the other thing, failed politicians who lost power and seats will try to demonize Sadrists and the new government, and....and.... But, all we can hope is that, there will be some good developments at least, more jobs, and at least some needs of ppl are met.
  9. This coalition or any other coalition be successful or not, is not a guarantee.. especially in such countries suffering from wars, sectarianism, economical issues and many more! Even if Sadr won 90% and had the entire government for himself and his allies, still the same situation... not because of the parties but because of the structure of Iraq nowadays... but hopefully at least there is some improvement if not a total success! The problem you mention about Iran I still believe is minor compare to what the other side (Saudi/Qatar/west/UAE) tried to implement on Iraq.. by trying hard to bring the ex-Baathist + secular Shias to power (they failed), then they tried through Ikhwanists backed by Turkey, then they went to the level that preferred ISIS over any Shia/Kurdish government and supported them with everything they could. Finally, now they try to appease the Shia Islamists and play with nationalism cards where at least if they cannot turn Iraq into another Jordan or Morocco, then they try to provoke it against Iran. If people support their army and government and if corruption is no more, there is no militia anymore, and the government can easily disarm or punish any individual who try to lead a coup! These groups are just for show off and because there is a need for them, a need for them for the war, a need for them to defend local cities and groups of ppl to survive amongst corrupt ppl and corrupt system.. once the government and army is fixed and strong, these groups will be no more. Lastly, as I said earlier, no country in the world can live without allies, partners, neighbors and etc... Algeria has many friends and yes it takes sides sometimes.. Iran is one of Algeria's ally, it has good relations, and yes Algeria did take sides against some countries on Syria and Yemen and it does a lot of things... I have no idea what you have in mind about Algeria or any country who lives by itself and dies by itself... clearly even superpowers like US and China have allies and in times of need they MUST and they HAVE TO seek their allies support to do things. And lastly, nobody wish or want here any country to ask the other country what to do and have any influence in their governments against their will... that is mainly the nature of imperialist states which we all are against. BTW: MKO, an Iranian terrorist organization who did thousands of crimes and bombings in Iran, had their camps and members protected in Iraq for years even after the fall of Saddam Hussein under the influence of western powers... I never heard of Iran hosting and protecting Iraqi terrorist groups who want to topple the "regime" in Iraq.
  10. I respect your opinions and like you as an active user on this forum, but I am happy that you are disappointed a bit here... This alliance (if successful) is very important for unity of Iraq especially after what happened in last 5-6 yrd of bloodshed and I hope they continue to work together!!! Those who hated Sadr used the opportunity to start chanting against him more than he deserved, and those who hated groups (with close relation to Iran) also found an opportunity and started using tens of excuses like you to sideline a huge segment of your society by associating them with IRAN and IRAN only, and put the (Iraqism/nationalism) mask, and possibly pleasing Gulf states in claiming to finish Iranian influence! As I told you earlier, these stories are just for show off... Sadr probably is as close to Iran as Ameri or Maliki or Hakim...just different opinions, Sadr probably doesn't like Iranian attitudes in some cases and Maliki probably doesn't mind some Iranian behaviors.. Maybe you know more than what I know about your country and politicians, but from what I know, Iran doesn't run the show in Iraq and Lebanon or Yemen and Syria, Iran is not the boss, Iran is not a superpower, Iran is not an economic power, Iran has a lot of issues itself. The point: Iran is not the same to Ameri or Hassan Nasrallah as US or Britain is to King of Saudi or King of Jordan or Hariri or Sisi for example... For your nationalism purposes it is better to be close to Iran than to be under the feet of western powers or a little puppet of Saudi... like Hariri (the Prime Minister of a country) who was locked up, humiliated, and left his post by reading Bin Salman's wish-list from Saudi soil...in my entire life I do not remember something like that happened to an Iranian ally by Iranian government... You might say, oh I don't want anybody in Iraq, but you should realize that your not US or China and of course you are not on the moon.. your country needs allies and partners in all aspects!
  11. There is no need for any group or country to have military presence in Syria once the terrorists are defeated, Kurds and the Syrian government reach an agreement. And they will not stay anyways, it is expensive, and there is no need.. it has nothing to do with Israeli desire or demand. Syria has been a sovereign state and hopefully it will fully control its borders and bring peace so millions of refugees who been a problem for neighbors will return home and life goes back to normal. But, if Israel and Saudi pigs wish that they can pressure Shia groups & Iran to leave Syria so the militants would advance again and prolong the war, that is just a wishful thinking.
  12. I did not google it, but the replies are confusing... SO, does Iran have any power to "dry up Tigris" or it is just misinformation from Sumerian? And Tigris is not even going through Iran? Sumerian: in today's world I don't think it is a bad thing to be a 'nationalist' even though I don't like nationalists, because most of them are ignorant and haters/racist. BUT, while you are practicing your nationalism, make sure to not spread lies about others, or spread fake news! You seem to be trying your best nowadays to do so... The Saudi paid Takfiris rounded up thousands of Shia-Iraqi military students and 'by the rivers' they slaughtered them like they were slaughtering sheep, but now all a sudden you forgot all that, and 15 yrs of Shia market bombings and massacres of Shia civilians in the hands of pro-Gulf state Takfiris and you are so pumped up to follow their policies of anti-Iran propaganda on whatever topic you could... have you noticed that you are the only one on this forum or maybe one more who agrees with you? Stop listening to all these youtube and political debates on Iraqi TVs run from Gulf states.
  13. Islamic Wahabi/Takfiri mosques/groups are tools in the hands of US/Britain/Israel.... other western and Christian or Muslim countries are victims. So, anybody who bans and kicks out these hypocrites and their backward and ignorant Muslims, GOOD FOR THEM. Because of these hypocrites (Zionists tools) all other ordinary Sunnis, Shia Muslims, and even easterner non-Muslims are having a hard time in the western societies.. but at the end I believe that is the aim of Zionists and Neocons.
  14. My friend! You keep repeating things, even if someone responds to you in discussing the points you made, no need for repeating. Who doesn't want change in Iraq? Any party who did not say that they will fight corruption? Who does not want a technocrat government? Sadr is the only and first messenger to this development? Who and which one of these parties or individuals who ran in the election ever said they want a Shari'a based government or dictatorship or a kingdom or a caliphate? Which one of these groups during the election said or acted like they were looking for conflicts or wars against Saudi or against Chinese or Russians? Who is asking Iraqis to prepare for confrontation with Saudis? It is natural when Saudis sent and finance ISIS in Iraq who on the basis of sects and religion killed thousands of Shias and enslaved many Iraqi women to show anger against Saudi..all Shias around the world did... it is natural for all Shias around the world to express their dissatisfaction when Saudis chopped the head of Ayatullah Nimr, and Iraqis were amongst other Shias who were angry, including Sadr. Now, Saudis according to you are the good guys, who are peace loving ppl, but it is only Iran and its proxies who seek confrontation and are provoking Shias, especially Iraqis to take sides? You are losing it my friend.. you just got a bit excited about the election results, where you think is going to change Iraq all a sudden and the problem is Iran, and now Iran is out. For example, I am just a Shia individual, non-Arab, never been to Iraq, Syria, Saudi, or Yemen! Why I have dislike for Saudis? Well, it is mainly because what they are doing to Shia ARABS, to some extend in general to all Muslims, and their main victims are ARABS. Saudi Shia citizens are being treated worse than animal, and they are the reason for Bahraini Shias daily abuse, they sold themselves and the entire Gulf to westerners for decades, they sold the entire Palestine, Syria, Lebanon and caused death and destruction over there.. all of them ARABS. They ruined Yemen, and turned the historic and huge country with millions of population to a graveyard, with millions of women and children suffering... they supported all extremists for decades to kill Shias and most recently ISIS and other Takfiri groups in Syria/Iraq... If I ignore the human aspects of all these issues, the suffering of Muslims, especially the Shias (who are mainly Arabs), I personally have no problems with Saudis. Iraqis, Syrians, Lebanese, Yemenis, Bahrainis, and etc.. are slaughtered and abused either directly or indirectly by Saudis, should I say 'who cares' or I could say that. I hope you understand where I am going with this. Most non-Arab Shias outside of Arab world are taking sides against Saudis for their behavior and actions against Shia-Arabs, against what they did historically to Baqi.. and thousands of other issues...
  15. Well, all those who won seats, are already part of the government. Ameri according to you is now the only corrupt one and Sadr and his lists, and all those who will ally with them are true Iraqis, honest, and never been involved in corruption?!! How many ministries were occupied by Sadr's men in the past? They were all angels? Do you see any problem with your opinion and inputs? Seriously, you are reading too much into all... Sadr never was an enemy of Iran and Ameri never pledged allegiance to Iran or other countries... or any other Iraqi politician that I know.. It has been a norm, by the minute that a Shia individual, Shia group, or personality says good things about Iran, builds political or financial relation with Iran or seeks military aids from Iran (that is a BIG NO) and automatically Iranian puppet and10s of other names! In that case everyone else is a Saudi puppet, US agent, European slaves and etc.. If I were in Iraq when ISIS took over the entire country and slaughtered Shias in thousands and were chanting to destroy all the shrines and enslave women for their pleasure, I would have seek help from any country, Argentina or Armenian, India or Japan, Mars or from the moon to protect my country.. let alone Iran, a Shia-Muslim brother and neighbor country. Kurds also took tons of aids and military guidance from Iran.. almost all Shia groups did, not just Ameri. You sound like a few Iraqi Sunni I know, always, anything and everything for them after Saddam is 'Irani' and against their motherland, they are thieves and sold the country they claim.. once when I questioned them and gave them a lesson, I asked them if they can name a single Shia party or politician that is 'Iraqi' and good for the country and if they rule the country is good, the answer was 'there are a lot of good Shias' and they are 'not against good Shias'. But, of course those Shias are unknown, and will never come to power and remain a mystery because they had not a single Shia personality in mind who would to be a good person and not an "Irani" according to them. BTW: you keep repeating that you don't want Shia, Sunni, Kurd, etc.. in Iraq.. it is not because ppl seek division who mentions all these, it is A FACT and the REALITY of Muslim and third world countries unfortunately! Afghanistan been that way, Pakistan, Turkey, Iran, India, and a lot of countries. It always been the goal of empires to divide and rule in the past and present time... some countries like Iraq/Afg/Syria who falls in wars, things come to surface, those who have control like Iran, Turkey, Pak, and etc.. HAVE these problems but bc they have not fallen yet, these things do not come to surface, God forbid the minute wars kicks off in Turkey, Pak, Iran, they will be worse than Iraq or Afg. When Kurds go for a referendum and vote for independence, that means there is something, 100 yrs old problems.. it is not fake whether we like it or not, or whether we or you or Sadr followers wish for something different.
