Many oil producing countries and OPEC members are currently witnessing political and security destabilization, raising questions about their oil future. Leading the list of Arab OPEC members, Iraq and Libya are experiencing a dangerous level of instability. Iraq, which wants to produce 6-9 million barrels a day by the end of this decade, is on the brink of a civil war led by its prime minister, Nuri al-Maliki, who controls money and power in the country, according to all western and Arab sources following the developments in Iraq. When U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry visited his French counterpart Laurent Fabius, they agreed that al-Maliki was dragging his country toward a new dictatorship. He has dominated the key ministries such as defense and security, and appointed acting ministers when unable to secure the approval of Parliament. Al-Maliki has destroyed the Iraqi mosaic, after Sunni ministers left the government and the Kurds pulled out. Al-Maliki has benefited from the balance that President Jalal Talabani helped construct, before Talabani's absence from the arena due to health problems.
