    Speaking in Syria, the Iraqi Prime Minister says U.S. has no right to impose timetables on his government, and that he can find other friends. Can there be any doubt we need to stop sacrificing American lives defending this puppet's regime? Excerpt:
    Iraq's prime minister lashed out Wednesday at U.S. criticism, saying no one has the right to impose timetables on his elected government and that his country "can find friends elsewhere."

    True or not. Would you expect him to say anything else?

    Ever heard of pride?

    Actually what this shows is that the irresponsible type of criticism coming from those with an anti-war agenda has a severe and destabilizing affect on the situation in Iraq.

    Huh? What does that have to do with the statements of the Iraqi prime minister?

    He is responding to statements like Levin made that said he should be replaced. Such talk destroys the possiblity of confidence in America by Shiites and Sunnis.

    U.S. military commanders are wanting to replace the entire government:

    "some senior U.S. military commanders even suggest privately the entire Iraqi government must be removed by "constitutional or non-constitutional" means and replaced with a stable, secure, but not necessarily democratic entity."

    If they are not going to do the work then we should pull out. If we are going to stay then we should give them our complete support. But all this talk and demagoguing does not benefit anyone, puts our troops in greater danger which is a complete lack of support, and discourages the Iraqi people.
