Since the March election, we have been waiting for the new government forming and it looks that we are going to wait for another month or maybe even more. Every day, we hear and read news about new agreements and new negotiations among the political parties but nothing really happens, no progress at all. Today and while I was watching TV at the office, a politicians said during an interview on TV that forming the government might not take place before the new year.
In spite of this long period and although the winning blocs are only four main blocs that represent most of the Iraqi people, they could not reach any kind of agreement about anything and they are still blaming each other for the delay. Each bloc claims that it is the patriotic one and that it is the one that aim to (SERVE THE IRAQI PEOPLE) The painful truth is the following. These blocs which fight now for the privilege of ( SERVING IRAQIS ) are the very same blocs which formed the government in 2005. The very same government that did nothing for Iraqis.
Regardless of the talk and everything else, there is one fact that I am very sure of. The coming government will be unable to do anything because our politicians do not care to serve Iraq as much as they wish to fatten their bank accounts.
To be more accurate, the only event that might happen is registering Iraq name in Guinness book for world record for spiriting away budget money and the longest period for forming a paralyzed government.
