Congenial new Iraq leader wins allies, but no easy path to save nation

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - It is no coincidence that Iraq's new prime minister is more likeable than his predecessor. Haider al-Abadi was handpicked last month to detoxify a political system poisoned to the point of collapse under the dour and mercurial Nuri al-Maliki. A former engineer widely described as an amiable and witty pragmatist, Abadi vindicated supporters at home and abroad by including Sunnis, Kurds and members of his own divided Shi'ite majority in a unity government approved by parliament on Monday. #Army #military #Budget #editing #Kurds #Sunni #islamic-state #maliki
