Big fat NO

"No, a big fat NO, N.O.": So says the Iraqi parliament on the issue of permanent US bases in Iraq:

Iraq “put the U.S. on notice.” Iraq’s National Security Advisor, doesn’t mince words.

“The people of Iraq, the Parliament, the Council of Representative and the government of Iraq, all say no, big fat no, N, O, No military bases for Iraq because we believe that is in direct encroachment to our sovereignty, and we don’t need it.”

That message was delivered directly to Vice President Dick Cheney at the White House.”
I wonder how the Cheney Monster reacted to that. {{{shudder}}} Furthermore, I wonder what gives these uppity Iraqis the idea that they have any say-so in what goes on around that (you'll notice I didn't say "their") country.
