Iraq demands U.S. surrender

Isn’t that what all the hysterical neocons tell us whata specific timetable for withdrawal is?

Iraq’s national security adviser said Tuesday his country will not accept any security deal with the United States unless it contains specific dates for the withdrawal of U.S.-led forces.

The comments by Mouwaffak al-Rubaie were the strongest yet by an Iraqi official about the deal now under negotiation with U.S. officials. They came a day after Iraq’s prime minister first said publicly that he expects the pending troop deal with the United States to have some type of timetable for withdrawal.

Forget the timetable. Get out at year’s end. The stability of Iraq is not a legitimate American concern. If Washington is worried about democratic legitimacy, they should be drawing up plans for the invasion of Brussels and Paris about now… and come to think of it, I’m sure they can find more than a few jihadists to fight there while they’re at it.
