Maliki raises possibility that Iraq might ask U.S. to leave


Should such a thing happen it will be quite interesting to see how it plays out.

Will the idiot or the next President take the opportunity? It is the perfect out.

My guess is the moron won't do it and neither will McCain. They both want US troops there indefinitely and undoubtedly couldn't care less what the UN or Maliki have to say about it. But it would raise the ire of most nations of the world when they've been asked to vacate Iraq.
Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki raised the possibility that his country won't sign a status of forces agreement with the United States and will ask U.S. troops to go home when their U.N. mandate to be in Iraq expires at the end of the year.

Maliki made the comment after weeks of complaints from Shiite Muslim lawmakers that U.S. proposals that would govern a continued troop presence in Iraq would infringe on Iraq's sovereignty.

"Iraq has another option that it may use," Maliki said during a visit to Amman, Jordan. "The Iraqi government, if it wants, has the right to demand that the U.N. terminate the presence of international forces on Iraqi sovereign soil."
