meanwhile... Iraqi government asserts itself!

Impasse in US-Iraqi forces talks
BBC News
13 June 2008
Iraqi PM Nouri Maliki has said that talks with the US on a long-term agreement allowing US forces to remain in Iraq have "reached an impasse".

I'm pretty sure SecState Rice would assert that, "no one could have foreseen" this possibility!

Me? I view it as good news, on a couple of levels. First, it suggests that the Iraqi Government takes Iraq's sovereignty somewhat seriously. Second, it thwarts W's goal of bequeathing to his successor our endless engagement in Iraq.

Go Maliki!

Stop the madness!
