    does a "standard, legal parliamentary procedure" involve military forces?
       And why is Kerry threatening Maliki "not to make any trouble" if we are still talking about a "standard, legal parliamentary procedure"?

      which gnosticator has termed a "political coup." Do you agree with his assesment?

      Constitutional crises of all kinds do not reach the level of coup. You have repeatedly misrepresented your sources. Not a single actual news agency says a coup has occurred, as you do. They are all much more careful to use qualifying terms like "the markings of" and so on. Why is that?
