Uh oh. Is another American puppet trying to cut his strings?
Iraq's prime minister said Friday that talks with the U.S. on a long-term security agreement between the two nations have reached a dead end, saying the U.S. proposals "violate Iraqi sovereignty."
Nouri al-Maliki said the talks slumped because each side refused the other's demands. The initial framework agreed upon was to have been an accord "between two completely sovereign states, al-Maliki said. The U.S. demands "violate Iraqi sovereignty. At the end, we reached a dead end," he said.
The prime minister, who spoke to reporters during a visit to neighboring Jordan, said of the American demands that "this is not acceptable."
I'm sure there are a few agents at Langley right this moment figuring out how to assassinate this guy. What hubris? To think that he should have control over foreign troops in his country!
