    Top Iraqi officials are calling for a radical reduction of the U.S. military's role here after the U.N. mandate authorizing its presence expires at the end of this year.

    All the more reason to bomb Iran to a moonscape. Too bad Israel gets to do it.

    The reasoning is, many in the Shia leadership look to Iran for guidance. If we just open up to more Canadian oil, drill offshore, in Alaska and Colorado and build more refineries and use coal for auto fuel we can tell those muslim jerks to piss up a rope.

    Thanks Caslon !!! good sugject !!!! Its no wonder the Iraqies are "acrimonius" toward what bush is trying to push down their throats. Iran aside the Iraq politicians are plenty smart enough to see that bush's plan is to control their country, all the Iraqies want is legitimate sovereignity for their country. bush planned to open/maintain 50 or more bases, control Iraq's airspace, wanted immunity for our soldiers/contractors (can you imagine asking for that with their past experience of such immunity, blackwater, had immunity, did some killing of their own for no good reason, it was proven but the bush regime still gave them another contract, yah, sure, the Iraqies want more of that !!!! ) Bush wanted the right to arrest Iraqies in his "war on terror", no questions asked, the right to attack any of Iraq's neighbors from any of those 50 bases, and was pushing for great deals for his oil buddies. This information was given by Iraqi statesmen at congressional hearings recently. But bush still maintained recently that there were no plans for signing any agreements with Iraq, that would tie the hands of congress or the next president. WHAT A F____ LIER HE IS !!!!!!

    How about a do-over? Pull the troops back to Kuwait for six months, let the Iraqis slaughter each other and then move back in and finish off the victors. MPs do that with bar fights.

    With the recent supreme court ruling however, it would be foolish to take prisoners.
