Iraqi Premier Denies U.S. Assertion He Agreed to Timelines

WaPo reported Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki lashed out at the United States on Wednesday, saying his popularly elected government would not bend to U.S.-imposed benchmarks and timelines and criticizing a U.S.-Iraqi military operation in a Shiite slum in Baghdad that left at least five people dead and 20 wounded.

It appears he feels that he does not need us there any more, so we should tell him that we are packing up and going home. When he recovers from the shock of that news, and begs us to stay, we need to tell him that the militias must be disarmed NOW, and if that means that Sadar withdraws his support, so be it.
