Majority of Iraqi Lawmakers Now Reject Occupation

‘On Tuesday, without note in the U.S. media, more than half of the members of Iraq’s parliament rejected the continuing occupation of their country. 144 lawmakers signed onto a legislative petition calling on the United States to set a timetable for withdrawal, according to Nassar Al-Rubaie, a spokesman for the Al Sadr movement, the nationalist Shia group that sponsored the petition.

I’m curious as to how much the US will respect the “democracy” they went to war for, now that they’ve been democratically asked to leave.

Or rather, the democracy they claimed they went to war for when it became apparent to the world that their first few reasons were made up nonsense. 🙂
