Time to talk about getting out of Iraq.....


"BAGHDAD (AP) - Iraq's Cabinet overwhelmingly approved a security pact with the United States on Sunday, ending prolonged negotiations to allow American forces to remain for three more years in the country they first occupied in 2003.

The deal detailing the conditions of the U.S. presence still needs parliamentary approval, and lawmakers could vote as soon as Nov. 24. For Iraqis, the breakthrough was bittersweet because they won concessions from the Americans but must accept the presence of U.S. troops until 2012."

---------------------------------------------

Hmmm. You just know the socialist liberals are gonna have fits trying to get around this one if the Iraqis agree to it. What was it that the O'Sodomites said about getting out of Iraq post haste? Hell fire. Obama will be over half way through with his little occupation of the White House and the Republicans will be on their way back into it.

Poor things. Not even in the oval office and getting their arses kicked like a big mouth jackass already. emoticon

Re: Time to talk about getting out of Iraq.....


This article from the New York Times says it all, it doesn't matter what Iraqi government says but it matters what ordinary Iraqis are thinking.




Some people are saying that the Americans are making the bombings to make Iraqis believe that it is very important for them to stay in Iraq, that they are still needed. The Americans say that when they
withdraw from Iraq violence will increase. Is that a threat? You can read it as a threat, or you can read it as an expectation. Some Iraqis take it as a threat.

Some people are asking: “Are the Americans punishing us with bombings because Iraq has refused to sign the SOFA?” [Status of Forces Agreement]

Here that is a reality, people think it. I can see it in people’s eyes when they say it to me. Real belief in what they are saying.

Re: Time to talk about getting out of Iraq.....




The Sadrist parliamentary bloc says the Iraqi National Assembly will reject a security pact between Baghdad and Washington, despite the government's endorsement.

MP Ahmed al-Masoudi, a spokesman for the bloc said on Sunday that the government's endorsement of the US-Iraq security pact "did not mean anything" as long as it required the approval of a parliament which would reject it, the Voices of Iraq news agency reported.

He added that a majority of the Iraqi nation was against the pact and it would be rejected by Parliament because "a large number of lawmakers from different blocs" are opposed to it.

The Sadrist MP said ratifying such an agreement by a single majority would be against the Iraqi Constitution and the Sadr bloc would stage public protests across Iraq to reject the agreement.

The US and Iraq have been negotiating a controversial security pact which would allow US troops to stay in Iraq after their UN mandate expires in December 2008.

The Iraqi government unanimously ratified the draft agreement on Sunday. The security agreement, however, has aroused the fierce opposition of Iraqi political and religious figures who argue that such a deal would violate the country's sovereignty.
