Here's something interesting:

Iraqi President Jalal Talabani says U.S. troops should stay in Iraq for two to three more years.

Is this so? or as Arthur says:

...the idea that there is a "foreign government" -- that is, that there is an independent, sovereign Iraqi government.

In fact, there is not. And that is by conscious design, as it has been from the beginning. Bush's propagandists justification for the endless slaughter is that we are creating an independent, "democratic" Iraq, which will then serve as the magical means for transformation of the entire Middle East. But the administration will only permit an "independent" Iraq that conforms in all significant ways to the administration's own goals, and its own demands. In other words, Iraq is to be "independent," but it is to be ruled by a puppet regime, one that we direct.
