– US forces in Iraq are occupiers and only understand the language of force.
– We show our objection to prime ministry of Adnan al-Zurufia, CIA’s candidate, and this will not prevent us from keeping security and peace in Iraq.
– We warn the president (Barham Salih) that introducing Adnan al-Zurufia is against the will of protesters and Marja.
– Introducing a controversial and accused of corruption candidate is a threat to the country peace and we won’t let it happen never.
– We decry support for this mercenary’s candidacy by some groups in the parliament and it is a shame for them. We ask them to compensate for their mistake.
