Hmmm... I wonder how Darth's handling an Iraq with cojones...?

i have to give vent to a bit of rueful laughter here, since the u.s. started building those permanent bases immediately after saddam's government was toppled... do ya suppose that since the construction is fairly well advanced, the iraqis figure it's time to re-possess...?

from think progress...

The Iraqi government has “put the U.S. on notice” that they do not want permanent U.S. bases in Iraq, CNN reports today. The message was “delivered directly to Vice President Dick Cheney at the White House” by Iraqi National Security Adviser Mowaffak Al-Rubaie, who told CNN that Iraqis say, “No, big fat no, N-O for the bases in Iraq”:
The people of Iraq, the parliament, the council of representatives and the government of Iraq, they all say no, big fat no, N-O for the bases in Iraq. No military bases for Iraq because we believe that is in direct encroachment to our soveriegnty, and we don’t need it.

it ought to be fun to watch THIS one play out...
