al-Maliki Says He Doesn't Want U.S. in Iraq

"Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki shrugged off U.S. doubts of his government’s military and political progress on Saturday, saying Iraqi forces are capable and American troops can leave “any time they want.”

One of his top aides, meanwhile, accused the United States of embarrassing the Iraqi government by violating human rights and treating his country like an “experiment in a U.S. lab.”"

They don't want us there. They want to solve their own problems, just as we do.

You are right TTH, the Peace movement's belief is that "A dead iraqi is just another dead Iraqi..."

"Many acknowledged that Iraq could first plunge into vicious sectarian fighting. . . . Yet they flatly rejected the use of U.S. troops to stop the killing. 'I wouldn't be surprised if it's horrendous,' said House Appropriations Committee Chairman David R. Obey, a Wisconsin Democrat who has helped lead the drive against the war. 'The only hope for the Iraqis is their own damned government, and there's slim hope for that.' "--Baltimore Sun, July 18, 2007
