For months now, there has been a low level meme in the MSM about a pending coup in Iraq.
No, it will not be a Thai style coup, as much as a voluntary change in form of government.
David Ignatius has the latest iteration of the proposed coup via Realclearpolitics.
Calling any of the options in Ignatius’ column a coup is a disservice to the bananna republic colonels in mirrored sunglasses everywhere.
When the current elected leadership voluntarily steps aside, it is not a coup.
Bringing back Ayad Allawi as a “strongman” is not a coup.
But, I guess coup sounds more menacing than change in government.
