I've relocated to a new Yankee Sailor.
The AP reports today what most Americans on the ground in Iraq already know: the Iraqis want us to stay.
Iraq's foreign minister said he's concerned the United States may pull out of the country before the army and police are ready to take responsibility for the nation's security. and
The Iraqi minister came to New York to urge the U.N. Security Council to extend the mandate of the U.S.-led multinational force, saying Iraqi troops and police cannot yet defend the country against an armed insurgency by remnants of Saddam Hussein's regime and some foreigners.The real question here is not does Iraq want America to stay, but how long can America afford to stay in Iraq and allow Iran and North Korea to believe they have freedom of action with their WMD programs?
