Maliki Expends Political Capital on Daini

Iraqi MP Mohammad al-Daini, a hyper sectarian once coddled by Channel 4, U.S. congressmen and the inventor of Tweezerman, is being accused of ordering terrorist attacks or at least harboring those who carry them out such as his nephew, Riyadh al-Daini, charged with bombing the parliament building less than a couple of years ago.

But that’s not what’s interesting here; it’s certainly not as interesting as Maliki leaping to Daini’s defense. According to Maliki’s media advisor, the prime minister has instructed Iraq’s security services to respect Daini’s parliamentary immunity and to basically get off his back (Arabic link).

“Why is that?” one may ask…

Well, it so happens that Daini is a member of Saleh al-Mutlag’s bloc, and if my speculation in the post below has any value—that Maliki is seeking a long-term alliance with Mutlag—then this whole thing makes a lot of sense.

But then again, the raids that netted Daini's nephew were seemingly approved by Maliki personally ...or were they?

Post-2009 elections we might say, so far, so good. But what comes next? What is the next milestone in Iraq to watch for? I wonder if no big milestone will be reached and passed before the next major verdict on the Iraq regime's development is understandable. Perhaps many small events like this one are the ones to watch.

Hi anon,

The next milestone will be the SOFA referendum by summer's end. I don't think it will pass.

Best,

Nibras,

I had read about Maliki's media adviser Yaseen Majid commenting on the PM's alleged directives not to arrest the sectarian Baathist pig Daini in Al-Sharq al-Awsat only.

This latest "tidbit," to my knowledge, has not been reported in any other publication, whether Western or Arabic, and the Western wire sources are still reporting that measures are being taken to lift his immunity.

What do you make of these discrepancies?

It would be a shame if Maliki were to cover the rear end of this shameless anti-Shia neanderthal, and if that is really going to be the case, do you think it will affect his credibility/popularity among the Shia community?

Best regards,

Basil

Indeed. One wonders how the shia community would react to the very idea of a Dawa/Neo Baathist alliance?

2020.05.24酒店小姐的基本介紹跟工作內容酒店小姐會去上班是原因呢??
梁曉尊 為你劃出3個重點我在酒店上班的日子 (想賺錢、需要賺錢、必須賺錢)
A.因為負債~~(被動酒店打工因素)~~
(1).家庭負債 為了家人的賭債或者家人生意失敗…。
(2).感情負債 為了男友或老公還錢。而另一半無工作…。
(3).個人負債 刷卡花錢。做生意失敗…。
(4).學業負債 讀書…。如助學貸款
B.因為環境酒店上班-酒店兼職-兼差如何達成人生的第一桶金 ~~(被動因素)~~
(1).單親家庭 也許是獨生女或長女需要照顧重病家人…。
(2).養育小孩 自己獨立撫養小孩的單親媽媽。
C.因為夢想酒店兼差不是一個複雜的工作環境?~~(主動因素)~~
(1).物質夢想 想買自己的東西…。
(2).金錢夢想 想存一筆錢…。
(3).留學夢想 想要出國留學…。
(4).購屋夢想 想要一間的房子…。
D.因為迷上了不良嗜好。輕微:養男人。重度 如:毒/賭。
有小姐常問職場須知 【酒店PT 】:
A. 酒店上班需要什麼條件呢?
B.需要很漂亮或是身材很好嗎?
C.有彈性一點的時段嗎?能不能上自由班?
D.我不會喝酒或是不會講話怎麼辦?
E.需要很漂亮或很會喝酒之類的等等嗎?
其實依照很多酒店小姐過來人的心得~總結只有三個字(有、決、心)只要有決心,一切的問題都變的不是問題 不是嗎?
假設以下問題:若你下個月急需拿出一筆錢時,你還可能想著~
"我酒量很不好"、"我可不可以上自由班?"這些問題嗎?
當你正要解決妳的經濟壓力時,你還會想著~
"上班地點好遠喔 "、"下班時間好晚喔,我都不能出去找朋友 "這些問題嗎?
加班賺錢都來不及了…應該是為了生活來配合工作制度,而不是要求環境來配合你。
當然! 我們也看過條件很好、但是不缺錢的小姐上班沒多久就放棄了、因為她沒有壓力、其實不缺這份工作 只是心存幻想。
也看過外在條件還好、可是有經濟壓力的、很需要錢的,他照公司制度準時上下班、就解決她的燃眉之急啊~!!
那你呢?妳想解除妳的經濟壓力嗎~?這些話是入行多年的我梁曉尊想告訴剛入行的女孩們的心理話。其實寫這篇文章 是要讓姐妹們知道 自己清楚所做的決定 而非一時衝動。

妳所期待的,未必是妳所願的
妳該做的事,未必是妳願做的。
做任何事都有它的所得跟代價!

2021.04.01台中海派酒店打工名花「昆凌」之稱的張姓女子,稱自己有1.7億身家,農曆春節痛訴遭小6歲男公關Seven騙錢,還痛罵對方是「沒錢的花心渣男」,而讓她陷入愛河的原因,竟然只是因為一個便當。據《酒店工作新聞網》報導,酒店小姐張女4年前惹上詐欺官司,因為心情不好和朋友上夜店,剛好遇到Seven,不久對方開始追求她。一開始,張女認為Seven年紀太小,不願意接受,但對方不死心,為了她不去酒店上班,還每天帶便當給她吃,逐漸融化她的心,最後終於抱得美人歸。不過,2人交往並非一帆風順,張女直言,「沒有女友可以接受男朋友每天和一堆女人搞曖昧」,她和Seven常為了一些事情吵架,「但他堅持他愛我」,更透露2人擁有相同的人生境遇,「我們都是從小出來工作的人」,因此希望可以一起攜手走向未來。至於張女提到被Seven騙錢,她事後改口說的「是氣話」,還表示Seven對她很好,上周已收到聘金,還開心試婚紗,預計5月結婚,更自爆懷孕超過2個月。Seven也透露,張女所寫的內容都是誤會,不會計較,因為那都不是事實,承諾「未來也會負責好好照顧她和孩子」。
