Any bilateral agreement will end up in the trash can: AMSI
The official spokesperson for the Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq, Mohammed Bashar al-Faydi (spelling corrected), read a statement and answered questions at the conclusion of the AMSI's fifth annual general meeting in Damascus. The statement included the following remarks on the armed resistance:
Sheikh al-Faydi said: The resistance is the sure way to end the occupation and this resistance has not and will not cease or disappear; when it disappeared from Anbar as a result of the projects of the Awakenings that are loyal to the United States, it returned and grew in Mosul, Diyala and other areas of Iraq, and in fact it moved into places where the occupier didn't expect it, like the South of Iraq.In answer to a question, the spokesman said:
Several Arab countries today maintain support for several of the forces opposing the occupation, and other countries will follow them in that, once the current administration [in Iraq] has been changed, and he said the Arabs will be engaged in the matter of Iraq once the current administration is changed...
He said the fact that the occupation and the parties that benefit from the occupation oppose AMSI's project is of no consequence, "because these parties and this government are the object of popular resentment that has reached its high point, given their theft of billions of dollars from the nation's annual budget....The government... is living its last moments. The occupation, in its own interests, is providing [the government] with life-support, in spite of its considerable irritation with [the government]," and he warned that "once this administration falls, the government will be in its death-throes".
AMSI is not worried about Kurdish separatism. "They will not separate, because in spite of the current political operations, if [the two parties] were to declare separation, the Kurdish people will not support them". He said AMSI has surveys showing over 80% of Kurds in the north don't support the two main parties; and over 60% don't support federalism, adding that the ratio of people in the South rejecting federalism is even higher.And there was a question about the US-Iraq security agreement.
Whether the government signs the agreement or doesn't sign it, the national forces in Iraq have registered their rejection of any agreement with the occupation, of whatever kind, whether political, military, economic or cultural that is damaging to the sovereignty of Iraq and to its security and to its wealth. The force rejecting the occupation cannot deviate from this principle. If the government wants to sell the occupation, that sale will be null and void, because it doesn't represent reality. The wastepaperbasket is the fate that awaits [any such agreement] on the liberation of Iraq.(Their own English version is available here, worth a read because he raises a couple of other interesting points as well).
