The process of formation of government in Iraq is a big blow to the MKO and their dreams; they expected conflict be escalated so that they could take advantage of it. There's no doubt that the establishment of government will lead to the stability of situation. All efforts now are focused on this goal; efforts that were earlier expressed in Iraqi constitution, backed by all groups and parties.
Three months full of concerns and tensions passed in Iraq and despite speculations for more conflict, there were fast notable agreements on electing ministers so that Nouri Al-Maleki would possibly introduce his cabinet in two or three days. One can't ignore the role of some political groups and figures in creating this situation, which caused security and stability issues be considered as priorities for Iraqi officials. Iraqi Unified coalition's suggestion to give a seat of parliament to Allawi's list (that was surprisingly rejected by Sunnis), Mr. Mashalani's support for government activities, suggesting the disarmament of paramilitary forces, and Shiites' leaving the positions of Interior and Defense ministries (that had made Mojahedin-e khalq very angry) as well as the stances of Mr. Talabani (who invited the groups failed in the elections to take part in the government) in claiming that forming the government was irreversible; common feelings of Iraqi people and government on the need for immediate withdrawal of occupiers from Iraq should be assessed in such situation. The process of formation of government in Iraq is a big blow to the MKO and their dreams; they expected conflict be escalated so that they could take advantage of it. There's no doubt that the establishment of government will lead to the stability of situation. All efforts now are focused on this goal; efforts that were earlier expressed in Iraqi constitution, backed by all groups and parties. Meanwhile, in another expected move, the US failed it its efforts to convince permanent members of UN Security Council to increase pressures on Iran and Paris meeting, which was considered as a window of hope by Mojahedin, was closed without expected results. Suddenly, all MKO dreams turned to horrible nightmares for them, because the failure of Paris meeting indicates that no one should expect action (or a resolution) against Iran in the Security Council. So, one can say that cries of Rajavi's band have not been heard by Europeans, China and Russia. The only ones who hear them were the detainees of Camp Ashraf who live in the isolated censored situation of the camp and have no way except listening to selected news items. In the current situation of the world, and considering the universal protests to US policies and disagreement of members of Security Council with Washington, Rajavi's remnants should still wait for a US military invasion on Iran.
