I watched a bunch of interviews with Shia and Kurds this morning and there was a recurring theme. They want Iraq ALL INCLUSIVE! They want a representative government established with provisions for minorities much the same as our Bill of Rights. Amazing! They actually want to very people that are killing Iraqi civvies to be included in their democratic form of government.

That blows my mind! If someone was killing my loved ones I doubt highly if I'd be so inclined to moralistic charity! Wow! I wonder how that will sit with the civil war doom and gloomers? ;-)

Are there two co-equal tops to the executive branch? Who has the last say on an executive branch issue?

Hey, look... with all the terrorism going on over there I was rather happy to see they had a bit of redundancy written into their process.

In reality, the PM has all the power - the office is largely ceremonial in nature. It's like the Brits - the President is a figurehead. The PM has the power.

As The Ebb & Flow Institute's Honorary Chair of the Department of Redundancy Department of the Ebb & Flow Institute, I agree.

In fact, I would have build a lot more redundancy into the system.

In the Executive Brach, I would also have on top a Grand Potentate, because that is a really cool sounding title to have.

Next to the President of National Assembly, I would have a Prime Minister of Iraqi Assembly, with two more Deputy PM's under him, and an Iraqi Assembly next to the National Assembly.

And in the Judicial Branch, I would have a Pretty High Judicial Counsil, with a Supreme, and We Mean It This Time, Court above them.
