I always knew Allawi was a schemer and snake and now everyone knows after he tried to take power with the help of the USA and Arabs outside of Iraq. Many Iraqis do not like Allawi (we see the elections results) and when Allawi tried to form new coalition to replace the government with many terroristic parties, his own party list lost numbers! Now people from his list have quit and he has not been able to take power. Instead of getting all power for himself, he lost some of the little power he had before. I knew Allawi was a plotter but now everyone knows and this is why he will lose more and more support.
Allawi also said that Maliki makes his government like Saddam and the Ba'thist. This is stupid. I think Allawi thinks that all Iraqis have forgotten what Saddam did. Allawi thinks Iraqis are stupid but no. Allawi knows how bad Ba'thist were because he was a Ba'thist agent, we also cannot forget that.
I think that Allawi made a big gamble. For over one year people said that maybe Allawi would try to take power. But when he did it very openly we all saw him do this and now he is hopefully weakened as a political person, or finished finally.
