Almotamar.net - Head of the Information Office of the General People's Congress (GPC) TaRreq AL-Shamy on Thursday described evasion of the opposition Joint Meeting Parties (JMP) from dialogue and resorting to trouble the public peace as political bankruptcy of the parties allied in the JMP which do not possess any realistic vision or programme except resorting to sit-in and agitation of the street at the expense of development and investments and also to sow the seeds of sedition and hatred among the society.
Al-Shamy has further said parties of the JMP have not offered or put forward any issue concerns the society on the dialogue table and they revoked pledges and agreements signed on, the latest of which was the agreement of principles and the document of issues and controls of dialogue.
Al-Shamy nevertheless reiterated the call on the JMP to return to dialogue in harmony with the document of issues and controls of dialogue and to put all issues on the dialogue table if it has a genuine vision instead of instigating seditions and agitating the street and destabilizing security and peace of the society.
In 2007 the opposition Yemen Congregation for Reform (Islah) Islamic oriented Party maintained its having political and media sway over the Joint meeting Parties (JMP) block, also consisting of Yemen Socialist Party and the Nasserite Unionist Organisation.
Doctors use the word “crisis” to describe the point at which a patient either starts to recover or dies. President George W. Bush’s Iraqi patient now seems to have reached that point. Most commentators appear to think that Bush’s latest prescription – a surge of 20,000 additional troops to suppress the militias in Baghdad – will, at best, merely postpone the inevitable death of his dream of a democratic Iraq. Yet as “Battle of Baghdad” begins, factors beyond Bush’s control and not of his making (at least not intentionally) may just save Iraq from its doom.
