On Monday U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived to Baghdad in a visit aimed apparently to persuade the Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to step down for failing to manage the current crisis experienced by Iraq, amid internal and external calls bear him responsibility for the collapse of security and its political ramifications.

With the increase in the gains achieved by ISIL fighters every day, pressure is mounting on the administration of President Barack Obama in U.S. policy circles to abandon al-Maliki.

Kerry visited Iraq at the time on which the dignitaries close to al-Maliki are pressing to exclude him from the government, led by Shiite clerics Muqtada al-Sadr and Ammar al-Hakim. Also, the Kurds and other Iraqi political figures, including Iyad Allawi are making efforts to push Al-Maliki to resign by accusing him of fomenting sectarianism in Iraq between Shiites and Sunnis.
