We are there at the invitation of the Iraqi government. This is a sovereign nation. Twelve million people went to the polls to approve a constitution. It’s their government’s choice. If they were to say leave, we would leave. –George W. Bush, 24 May 2007
So now that Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has asked for a timetable for the withdrawal of US troops, are we going to keep our promise?
Of course not. The Bush administration has put the talks on hold (read: he’s going to dump this quagmire on the next president’s lap). Then the Republicans will be able to blame whatever happens on the Democrats.
Keep up the good work. Looks great! Needed a laugh as I am campaigning for Obama. Well done.
