"I think we will get an agreement on training," Zebari said, but he would not discuss numbers and stressed that training could take place both outside and inside Iraq.
"How many trainers will remain in Iraq is not that important," he said. "It's the commitment that is very important."
Regardless, Zebari said, there will be no new status of forces or security agreement with the Americans.
"The political conditions in Iraq have changed. That's why it's difficult," he said.
Any move that leaves U.S. forces in the country past the end of the year has been vigorously opposed by anti-American Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, whose Mahdi Army militia was responsible for much of the violence in the country when it was consumed in a near civil war in 2005 and 2006. Al-Sadr has threatened a resumption of violence if the U.S. troops remain into 2012.
"We reject even the staying of trainers," Sadrist lawmaker Mushraq Naji said last week. "Our stance is clear and that all U.S. troops should leave. Negotiations to keep them here run against the will of the Iraqi people."
Zebari said the government has support from most political leaders for the talks with the Americans on training mission arrangements because the country doesn't have the military expertise to protect its shores and oil terminals, control its airspace and air defenses, "and even the land forces need" training.
But he said the government must line up support in parliament for the training mission, as it did to win approval for the current U.S. status of forces agreement. The foreign minister was interviewed hours after officials in Baghdad announced that Iraq had signed an estimated $3 billion deal to buy 18 fighter jets from the United States. The F-16s aren't expected to arrive in Iraq until next fall at the earliest, and more likely not until 2013 which means U.S. forces could still be asked to patrol the country's skies. Zebari said the importance of the deal is "for the world to know that Iraq is an ally of the United States in the region."
Asked about protecting Iraq's airspace before the planes arrive and Iraqi pilots are trained, Zebari said the no-fly zone in northern Iraq in 1991-92 was controlled by just six American officers who were capable "of deterring the wrath" of Saddam Hussein's army. He said Iraqi airspace can also be protected by technology, and from U.S. airbases in the region
. That was done when the Americans were ensuring adherence to the no-fly zones in northern and southern Iraq from bases in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and Turkey, he said.
In the wide-ranging interview, Zebari said the decision on whether some U.S. troops should be kept in disputed areas in northern Iraq "will depend on the outcome of the Iraqi government talks on the training issues."
He also said "there is a new urgency" by all parties to get a law passed quickly on the distribution of Iraq's oil wealth among the federal government and the country's religious and ethnic populations
. The dispute especially centers on a three-way impasse over political control of the Kirkuk area among the country's Kurds, Arabs and Turkomen. Kirkuk sits above Iraq's main northern oil fields.
Various proposals are being presented to parliament, Zebari said, adding that the one the Kurds and the federal government agree on is the 2007 version of the law in which the government would control most oil and gas from existing fields but future discoveries would be managed jointly by Baghdad and the region.
Looking at the Mideast today, Zebari said, "I personally strongly believe that the Arab Spring would not have been possible with Saddam Hussein in power."
He said Iraq has a lot to offer to countries like Tunisia, Egypt and Libya that are going through political transformation after their uprisings against authoritarian rulers.
"Each and every one of them has to go through the same stages that we've been through," he said. "And we see the tensions, we see the difficulties of embracing a new order. ... Our system, our democracy is not tidy, it's not perfect, it's clumsy, it's uneven and so on. But really the structures are there to resolve problems." http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/09/27/ap/business/main20112440.shtml Vice on the mass of the citizen: the political blocs to resolve their differences before the U.S. withdrawal

Thanks Deb for this next article as journalism is my passion.... Memorial for killed journalists to be built in Anbar
Anbar, Sept. 28 (AKnews) - A memorial for journalists killed in the line of duty will be created by artist Ayad Hussein in Anbar province.
Hussein and a group of artists and journalists presented several drafts to the Anbar provincial council, which has to choose one.
"My favorite draft shows a body, covered in an Iraqi flag and threatened by a set of pens around him," said Hussein. Hussein came up with the idea of a memorial because he felt that in Iraq, the sacrifice of journalists is not praised enough.
"The reporters and the families of the martyrs of the press are not supported by the culture department in Anbar for example," complained Hussein. Iraq is classified as one of the most dangerous areas for journalists in the world where about 360 journalists were killed in the country since 2003, according to numbers of media rights organizations.
The latest victims was Hadi al-Mahdi, who was shot September 8, in an apartment in Abu Nawas Street in central Baghdad.
Mahdi was known for criticizing the government in a radio show and in articles for a number of websites. He had been arrested and tortured by security forces along with a number of journalists during the protests that took place last February.

Observation that struck me the most important and which prove that the project approval process as one of the phrase "reasons", which is usually a discussion on the approach of the final version of any law.

The researcher assured the citizens, which is administered talk about what may accompany the process of removing the zeros, he did not exploit the possibility of it by the weak people, as rumored recently, and that the new currency is the currency to be printed with high specifications difficult to forge or imitate in any way.

He noted that the approach to the guillotine was a pioneer in Sweden in the eighties of the last century, as was used in Hungary and South Korea and Mexico in the nineties has been evaluated those experiences by the OECD in its program of regulatory reform for the period 2001 2011 and the Scott refining those experiments and their results in the developing countries is a strategy Jacobs has registered as a trademark which is ((regulatory guillotine).
He hinted that the last two years have witnessed the completion of many countries in transition the guillotine, and included these countries Ukraine, Moldova, Kenya, Bosnia, Croatia, Egypt, Syria, Vietnam, Jordan has also started using the mini-guillotine.
And the main results of the guillotine he said that the goal of abolition and facilitate many of the systems in a short period and that South Korea ranked eleventh in the world's largest economies in the world where we reviewed more than 11 thousand of the list in 11 months, was canceled 50 percent of them Vontgt more than a million new jobs over ten years.
Inventory of all laws
Said Scott that the guillotine is the process of orderly and transparent to the public and private sectors and aims to showcase a number of regulations and legislation quickly to determine whether the legal and transparent, necessary and friendly business environment, a strategy of reform from top to bottom and must have strong leadership in the central government but are run from before a mini-reform unit established specifically for this process.
And requires the work of the guillotine a comprehensive inventory of all systems and procedures under the scope of the guillotine and the use of special programs that will greatly speed up the process of the guillotine and make it more transparent.
He said the international expert Scott in Iraq more than 27 thousand legislative system need to be reduced, including the need to facilitate and simplify and another to cancel this task be carried out by three working groups under the supervision of the government first is the ministries and the second in the private sector and the third core group appointed by the government to do to lift the recommendations concerning the laws to be eliminated, facilitating and pointed out that the task of the parties to choose titles are not the laws but also facilitated to suit the needs of the business environment.

At the intervention of the expert legal Ahmed al-Moussawi said that the transition to a market economy needs to organize the legislation and how to regulate the relationship between the government and legislation, which is for the business sector, stressing that this process is not easy and needs time, because the ministries have habits inherited in the formulation and implementation of laws.
Nada Jubouri member of the House of Representatives confirmed that the issue of the guillotine is very important, many problems experienced by the country's legal system, including economic systems, and if we adopted the current mechanism followed by the competent departments in the process of reform, we need decades to reach some positive results in this area, pointing to the guillotine will provide an environment in which the modified set of laws and put them in front of the House of Representatives during a specific time period not exceeding 6 months, confirming that the House of Representatives its sessions earlier was not able to amend laws that impact negatively on the ground investment in work and improve the work, must go to the real economic reforms that work on the development of the reality of the local economy, and during this guillotine can create the investment environment of the country.
The competent departments
As for Dr. Ali high-Dean of the Faculty of Law / University of Baghdad, said: guillotine legal interest in all the laws, and take upon themselves the economic laws confusing to put the investment in Iraq, and this work will be in cooperation with the competent departments in the economic work to become a work according to the exact mechanisms and established a global and systematic war crimes and lead to the end desired.
The second speaker, William The Chairman of the Hammurabi Organization for Human Rights said that the economic changes in Iraq facing the laws are complex and not encouraging to pursue economic reform and the transition of property laws and the banking system is underdeveloped and in need of changes to laws, and wondered whether the government is convinced to change the laws?
The economic expert on behalf of Jamil Antoine has confirmed that the absence of a strategy would hinder the economic transformation process, because the intersection of law has led to the expulsion of investments, noting that many of the laws and legislation are still pending on the shelves.
Definition of the private sector
Another speaker asked for the need to distinguish the elements of the private sector and can not fire a single floating because goals intersect with the commercial sector of the industrial sector and so must be the separation of these concepts to identify all the legislation according to his interests.
President of the Industrialists Abdul Hassan Shammari and Vice President of the Union of businessmen Hassan Silawi stressed that providing one million jobs through this project is a quantum leap but the challenge lies in how to activate the industrial sector and production in the country to achieve this goal.

not a dinarian was chatting not even Tony or Dan
Okie Oil Man kept singing his song
while dinarans were praying it wouldnt take long
the speakers were humming a conference call
while dinarians wondered at the truth of it all
the erbil is done, the sanctions are lifted
peace is restored, oops everythings shifted
Maliki is stubborn and always says no
Allawi calls foul and does a no show
Obama wants more its always the same
power and money, the name of the game
Tuesday thru Thursday, today is the day
Tony is sure but Dan says Nay
hopeful and wanting the dinarians sleep
counting dinars instead of sheep
But Shabibi was busy when we were not looking
he has a plan that he has been cooking
lift the zeros, get everything ready
make sure the government is nice and steady
and out of the night, the text how it comes
and oh how beautiful the the cell phone hums
we can feel the rush as we look at our screen
as our eyes glaze over in the color of green
Dan and Tony they share the good news
Okie breaks open the Oil and the booze
laughing and happy all dinarians rejoice
we are singing so loud...we all lose our voice
