He's got no strings?

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!

Here's a YouTube clip of Nouri al-Maliki's announcement.

All I can say is that the prime minister better have some trustworthy bodyguards and cooks.

Indeed. It's amazing just how many crazed lone gunmen there are in the world.... [grin]

I suggest that the Iraqi leader stay away from any grassy knolls.... [laughs]

All are equal in the Empire but of course, some are more equal than others.
