Irony Or Chutzpah

Dear Beloved tongodeon raises the question in his recent entry and of course I think the real Irony IS
Iraqi Leaders Urge a Timetable for Eventual Troop Withdrawal
Nov. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Iraqi leaders, meeting at a reconciliation conference in Cairo, urged an end to violence in the country and demanded a timetable for the withdrawal of coalition troops from Iraq.

In a final statement, read by Arab League chief Amre Moussa, host of the three-day summit, they called for ``the withdrawal of foreign troops according to a timetable, through putting in place an immediate national program to rebuild the armed forces.'' No date was specified.

``The Iraqi people look forward to the day when the foreign forces leave Iraq, when it's armed and security forces will be rebuilt and when they can enjoy peace and stability and get rid of terrorism,'' the leaders said in the statement. The session was broadcast live from the Egyptian capital by al-Jazeera.

The final statement also stated that ``resistance is a legitimate right for all people.'' The conference almost collapsed earlier today when Sunni leaders objected to the definition of ``resistance,'' al-Jazeera said.

``Terrorism is not legitimate resistance and thus we condemn terrorism and the acts of violence, killings and kidnappings that target Iraqi citizens; civil, governmental and humanitarian organizations; national wealth and houses of worships,'' the leaders said in the statement.

Shiite civilians have been frequently targeted by Sunni-led insurgents who seek to foment sectarian tensions in the country, and destabilize Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari's government.

Ok, so why would Iraq's wish to OPENLY OPPOSE the Greatest Military Leader EVER! Don't they know that simply emboldens the enemy?

And why is this article not one of the first that one finds when googling the news for it, after seeing the blurb on the bloomberg crawler?

Or is the real problem here, that it really doesn't matter what the puppet regime in Baghdad says, since they are less relevant when it comes to the needs of the NeoCon to win against the Veteran's Community.
