More evidence that the Americans want to cut & run
|It was only a couple of days ago that the Exile commented that maybe the Americans would get their Iraqi stooges to ask them to leave. Now more evidence is emerging that this is just what is likely to happen.|
A plan has been forward, ostensibly from the Iraqis, and the Americans have been careful to criticise it to the press. It calls for a timetable for the American withdrawal and the recognition of the nationalist resistence.
Quite what happens next is anyone's guess. The Americans could offer central Iraq to the nationalists in the same way that the south has pretty much been given up to the Shia militias by the British. The wheeze would presumambly be that all sides agree to hold off until after the Chimp has left office: then they can start settling old scores between themselves.
