Allawi Threatens to Quit? from IraqPundit by IraqPundit

IraqPundit: Allawi Threatens to Quit? -

A British paper says Allawi is threatening to quit. The paper named is not known for its accurate reports, but that doesn't stop the Arabic press from running with the story. The story says Allawi complains that power sharing is not happening. He blames Iran for blocking him and his group from the new government. And he mentions as evidence of Iran's hand in Iraq the release of Sadr's thugs from prison.

At this time it's not possible to know whether any of this is true. But if it is, it's not good for Iraq. The report quotes Allawi as saying there is a lot of disillusionment among Iraqis with any government that is formed. That part of the story is certainly accurate.
