Maliki asks Iraqis if they prefer dictatorship

No, Mr. Maliki, but Iraqis do prefer better leadership and better governance than you and your team have provided. Iraq needs somebody who will stand up for Iraq's minorities, not just the Shia, and you have failed in that regard, Mr. Maliki.

"Iraq's prime minister on Saturday described protesters calling for a regime change as out of step with the will of the nascent democracy and brushed off his critics as few and weak.

In a defiant nighttime interview on state TV, Nouri al-Maliki also questioned if those who want him to go would prefer Iraq to return to the days of dictatorship.'
