Lick That Veto Stamp ; Its Time For More Of The Same

After the US House Of Representatives voted to set a deadline for American troop withdrawal from Iraq, the Vice-President of Iraq has voiced his opposition to the plan.

Tareq al-Hashemi said a security vacuum would be left with badly trained Iraqi troops with divided loyalties.

Another person who, surprisingly agreed with him, was President Bush who promised to veto the bill when it comes before him.

But the House Democrats plus the majority of Iraqis want the US to leave. The Iraqis though even recognise this to be a false hope.

Though there is little chance of the bill actually bringing forces home, it might encourage Bush to at least listen to others about what to do about Iraq.

The truthiness blog says ; Please surprise us all Mr Bush and get Iran and Syria talking about sharing security roles to best get the country stable. It seems to be the only option that hasn't been tried yet.
