    Iraqis want Americans out of their towns

    And while they're getting out of Iraqi towns, they should get out of the country as well. This from Stars and Stripes:

    While most Iraqi officials acknowledge the police and army are far from being able to handle security on their own, some say the time is now. “If the Americans left next week, the security situation would improve, for sure,” said Sheik Rashid Ahmed Osman al-Jabuli, head of the Salah ad Din provincial council. “What they call the resistance would go away. I am resisting also, but believe in peaceful resistance.” Rashid is one of many Sunnis who refuse to accept the new constitution, saying it is crafted to give power and oil to Shiites and Kurds, and exclude Sunnis. But if American troops pull back, he says, there will be no civil war, though some analysts say one has already begun. “It’s preferable there be no connection or meeting, other than officials who are seeking to get benefits for people. There is no reason for ordinary people to meet them,” he said, of Iraqis and U.S. soldiers.
    My own opinion, judging by comments made by many Iraqis in media reports, is that once all occupation forces leave Iraq the security situation would improve. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    Error. It should read:

    While most Iraqi officials acknowledge the police and army are far from being able to handle security on their own, the overwhelming majority have said "the time is now," for over two years now.

    I'm glad we have you around DJEB, I didn't pick up on that, and wouldn't have done as quickly as yourself.
