Jaafari: Occupying forces should leave Iraq

more juan cole...
Former Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim Jafari of the Islamic Call (Da'wa) Party, is visiting Iran. IRNA reports,
'Concerning occupying forces in Iraq, Jafari said the best way for them is leaving Iraq adding even public opinion in their own countries supports their departure from Iraq.'

Jafari was the first elected Iraqi prime minister since 1954, and all that enthusiasm in the US in January, 2005, about the purple fingers was in essence enthusiasm for the government that he formed (April 2005-March 2006). His call, in Tehran, for US troops to go, now, should be front page news and lead the cable news cycle on Sunday. It will not be.

yes... it SHOULD be front page news IF the u.s. was indeed serious about having a democracy in iraq, which, of course, it isn't...
