    Dr. Abadi failed to meet his own promise as well as the Iraqis' expectation for reforms and fighting corruptions. Its typical of those politicians to come up after loosing their posts with heroic statements and blaming others for their failures!! Though Dr. Abadi was more firm against the Barazani's greed and frauds.

    The Badr Group. The Dawa Party thrive on discontent. They bleed the country financially.
    A truly transparent govt will make it difficult to continue their theft.
    The US , Sadr , Sistani ,Germany etc....will cleanse this eventually
    One way or the other.
