But they are a SOVEREIGN NATION with ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES, right, Bob?! Yeah, he's WAY DIFFERENT than RUMSFELD! U.S. is STILL TORTURING, etc, right? Didn't we SURGE under Gates -- a policy soon coming to Afghanistan?
I never liked him from the get-go! More shit fooleys for the public as the globalist masters agree on who should be in charge.
"US reluctant to alter draft pact on troops in Iraq, Gates says" by David Morgan, Reuters | October 22, 2008
WASHINGTON - The United States does not want to alter a draft security pact with Iraq, despite demands for change from Baghdad where the document failed to win support from Iraqi political leaders, US Defense Secretary Robert Gates said yesterday.
Gates told reporters at the Pentagon that the door to change was "pretty far closed" and warned that failure to reach a SOFA deal or renew the UN mandate for US troops to remain in the country would mean suspension of US operations.
You are NOT JUST SAYING THAT to make me FEEL GOOD, are you?
That means WE WON'T BE KILLING IRAQIS!!!! Can we THEN LEAVE?
Gates dismissed objections from Iraqi politicians. The Iraqi announcement yesterday was an apparent reversal for Baghdad, which had previously described last week's draft as a final text and said as recently as Saturday that it was unlikely to be renegotiated.
Maybe this Occupation Iraq: The Four Million Man March had something to do with it? Either that or the MSM LIED and put out another GOVERNMENT PRESS RELEASE as "news."
Only Kurdish groups have so far given the text full support. Humam Hamoudi, a leading member of parliament from the Shi'ite alliance, said that among those voicing doubts in recent days was Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki --more--"
Oh, so our INSTALLED PUPPET is backing out now?
HA! What SHITBAGS the MSM look like -- AGAIN!!!!
