Iraqi Prime Minister, Nuri al-Maliki, says that Iraq is ready to handle its own problems. He "shrugged off U.S. doubts of his government’s military and political progress Saturday, saying Iraqi forces are capable and American troops can leave "anytime they want.""(source: Associated Press, Baghdad, Iraq) So, mission accomplished. We have successfully toppeled a dangerous totalitarian regime and setup a Democratic Republic. The Prime Minister came short of asking us to leave, but he might as well have. So let’s go. If the Iraqi government asks for our help, I am sure that we will oblige. America is like that.
