Our government and the magic key

It sounds that our "national unity" government hoists now the white flag as it grows desperate for not reaching any agreement between all its political factions to have normalcy back to this war-torn country.

It now turns its eyes to beyond its borders to have somone with a magic key.

Today, our president Jalal Talabani sent a letter to Qatar's Emir, Sheik Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, in which he expresses his appreciation to the efforts he made to solve the crisis in Lebanon and invites him to visit Iraq.

I hope that Sheik Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani would accept Talabani's invitation to visit Iraq but with a magic key to get our country back on the track.

Do you think that Iraq's magic key is no long with the Iraqis?

No, not at all. It was always going to take a long time for Iraqis to clear their heads of the constant threat of Mukhabarat brutality while living under a dictatorship for decades, where Saddam even invaded people's nightmares.

It's been a long five years, but we now see that both Sunnis and Shia are starting to understand that in their new country neither group will have complete control. Tough compromises have been made. AQI, the Sunni insurgency, and now the Shia militias have all been severely reduced. Better days will come to Iraqis.
