Kurds to boycott cabinet meetings

IN an Associated Press (AP) article posted at July 10, 2014, the author, Qassim Abdul-Zahra of the AP, touches on the "already testy relationship" between Iraq's Kurdish minority and Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, reporting that the Kurds have declared their politicians will boycott Cabinet meetings.

In retaliation, authorities in Baghdad suspended all cargo flights to the Kurdish region.

Zahra writes that, while ties between the two parties have "long been strained", the latest Sunni militant offensive has seemingly "altered the power dynamics", with the Kurds having taken advantage of the chaos to "push into disputed territory, including the oil-rich area of Kirkuk, and to move closer to a decades-old dream of independence."

 According to Zahra, those moves have "infuriated" al-Maliki, who accuses the Kurds  of aiding and protecting the Sunni insurgents. In response, Kurdish President Mossad Barzani's office issued a statement saying al-Maliki "has become hysterical and has lost his (mind)."


At this point, no matter which side takes control of Iraq, whether Sunni extremists or al-Maliki, there will be nothing but animosity, mistrust and irreconcilable differences remaining between Iraq and the Kurds of the north.

And so the scenario for the battle, predicted by Jeremiah, between the "Medes" of the north -- the Kurds of Kurdistan -- and the army of the "land of the Chaldeans" -- modern-day Iraq -- seems to be already set.

First the cities burn, then the country is abandoned by the reconstructionists, and then the war. Iraq will be defeated by the Kurds, and the Kurds will plunder her treasures. Then the flood, then the drought, and finally, uninhabitable desolation.

It is decreed by the prophet.
