Android : In #Iraq, Muqtada al-Sadr reinforces his image as a nationalist by blasting "foreign intervention" as #Iran's Quds Force commander who has arrived in Baghdad uninvited to press Iraqis to form a new government to Iran's liking. #Iran  #Kurdistan

Android : I look forward to participating at the Atlantic Council "Middle East after the Iran Deal: From Escalation to Conflagration?" discussion after #UnitedStates exit from #Iran nuclear deal. #Iraq #Israel

Twitter Web Client : A cleverly worded tweet by Muqtada Sadr, leader of the biggest list in #Iraq's election. Is it a signal that he's taking charge? Is he ready for int'l engagement that leadership requires? Is the world ready to engage him?

Android : As with Churchill after WW2 and George Bush after the Gulf War, based on early and incomplete results, it appears that the Iraqis have not rewarded PM Abadi for his success against ISIS, making his job to remain as the PM very difficult.  #Iraq #Kurdistan

Android : #Pakistan former PM Nawaz says the country is isolated because of support for terror in #Afghanistan and #India.  He fears more isolation unless the policy is changed.

Android : My CONGRATULATIONS to all Iraqis for today's elections.  I wish them all the best and hope that a government that can unite them and can address their problems can be formed ASAP.

Twitter Web Client : A good piece on peaceful Pashtun movement, PTM, in #Pakistan. PTM's diagnosis that the military is behind terror is exactly right. The world has a big stake in its success.

Twitter Web Client : The policy of not searching black-tinted cars must change. Only the President's and Chief executive's cars can be exempted from search when the two are in their cars. No other exception or exemption. #Afghanistan

Twitter Web Client : More blasts in Kabul. The #Afghanistan government has not released the names of parliament members whose black tinted cars, as alleged by MOI, bring terrorists to Kabul. The names must be released and the policy must change.
