Shiites Say U.S. Is Pressuring Iraqi Leader to Step Aside - New York Times:
"BAGHDAD, Iraq, March 28 — Senior Shiite politicians said today that the American ambassador has told Shiite officials to inform the Iraqi prime minister that President Bush does not want him to remain the country's leader in the next government."
So, democracy's on the march; except when people freely and democratically decide to elect someone we don't like. See, that's the trouble with democracy: people make the damnedness decisions sometimes. Hey, just look at the U.S. Oh, right, we didn't actually elect BushCo; they elected themselves! Sorry about that. Maybe this time someone will actually be watching what's going on. As for the Iraqis, this is what you get when you ignore the lessons of history and your own intelligence and military.
