No-Confidence Vote Looms Over Iraq's PM

Senator Lugar, who has come out against Bush's policies in Iraq, agreed on CNN's Late Edition, that the collapse of the Maliki government would be disastrous:
For four years, Iraqis have been waiting in lines at gas stations in Baghdad, waiting for their lives to get better. But, as CBS News chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan reports, the situation has gotten worse and their government is now in crisis.

That has led senior Iraqi leaders to demand drastic change. CBS News has learned that on July 15, they plan to ask for a no-confidence vote in the Iraqi parliament as the first step to bringing down the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

Even those closest to the Iraqi prime minister, from his own party, admit the political situation is desperate.

The whole White House strategy for the Iraq war is based on supporting a corrupt and inept government.
