Funny thing about democracy. Iraqi Prime Minister al Maliki yesterday indicated he may ask US forces to leave the country. Apparently the current negotiations between the US and Iraq on a long term status of forces agreement have reached an impasse.
Somebody better tell John McCain that the center piece of his Iraq policy, long term American presence, may not be what the puppet government of Iraq and it's allies had in mind. In other developments Iraqi cleric Moqtada Al Sadr indicated he is forming a new force to fight US military presence. "We will not stop resisting the occupation until liberation or martyrdom" Al Sadr told his 60,000 strong militia.
