Iraq now controls Green Zone, Air Space & US Troops



Members of the Iraqi National Forces salute during a flag-raising ceremony Jan. 1 outside the former palace of executed dictator Saddam Hussein in the Green Zone in Baghdad.


BAGHDAD (AP) The U.S. formally transferred control of the Green Zone to Iraqi authorities Thursday in a pair of ceremonies that also handed back Saddam Hussein's former palace.

Iraq's prime minister said he will propose making Jan. 1 a holiday marking the restoration of sovereignty.

Under the new security agreement between Washington and Baghdad to replace a U.N. mandate for foreign troops in Iraq, the Iraqi government also now has control of American troops' operations and of the country's airspace.

The moves came amid a dramatic fall in violence over the past year.

Violence around Iraq plunged in 2008, with attacks declining to an average of 10 a day from 180 a year ago. The murder rate in November was less than 1 per 100,000 people - far lower than many cities in the world.

Afghanistan is just the place where all the AL Qaida wannabes go to now that we kicked their butts out of Iraq.

But, as long as teachings of the Quaran are perverted and throngs of disenfranchised young Arab men believe perverted notions taught to them from birth, that the West is the "Great Satan" and Israel has to be wiped off the face of the earth ....

Well, .... then there will always be an Arab country drawing an endless supply of Jihadist, born and raised to die in a suicide blast for the "glory of Muhammid", and fervishly believing that their only chance for a wife and happiness lays with the "74 Virgins".



Bushs' fault for sure.

The Mullahs know nothing of this. \:\)

I guess not. \:\/ I read your whiney response on your BS thread full of lies and projections of your own sick wishes.

I think they ( our troops ) are in VERY competent hands.

Everyone should be accountable for their actions. But we should not allow propagandist to take advantage of ANY situation.

Including narcissistic traitors like yourself.


My brother, ( A REAL Lt Col in the US Army) is on his way to Iraq now.

An infantry officer his main duty will be to help the ORDERLY withdrawal of our forces from an INDEPENDENT Iraq.

You lose again rbser.

So much for your "Iraq's in a civil war", and, "We cannot win this war!" BS, shrieking & hysterical leftist tips.

You were wrong then, you are wrong now ....

... and you will always be wrong until your lying, cowardly carcass is tossed on the garbage heap of life.
