At last, a politician whose word we can trust.

PM: Iraqis can keep peace without U.S.

By BUSHRA JUHI, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 45 minutes ago

BAGHDAD - Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Saturday that the Iraqi army and police are capable of keeping security in the country when American troops leave "any time they want," though he acknowledged the forces need further weapons and training.

The embattled prime minister sought to show confidence at a time when pressure in the U.S. Congress is growing for a withdrawal and the Bush administration reported little progress had been made on the most vital of a series of political reforms it wants al-Maliki to carry out.

The rest here.

The whole situation over there is so sad, no matter what we do or don't do. How can we blame them for the mess after we did so much to stir up the pot??? Pray for God's wisdom to prevail and for all leaders to be humble enough to look to God for guidance.

  1. How right you are PS. Only God can clean up the mess in Iraq. Let's pray that God raises up new leaders who can do just that!


And what do you think?
