"We are there at the invitation of the Iraqi government. This is a sovereign nation. Twelve million people went to the polls to approve a constitution. It's their government's choice. If they were to say leave, we would leave." -George W. Bush, May 24, 2007

Bush: Let us run your country. I want full immunity for Blackwater deathsquads and they should have the ability to arrest people, whether they broke Iraqi law or not!

Iraq: Uh, yeah - no. We want a timetable for the withdrawal of ALL your troops from our country, dickhead.

Bush: Ooooh, look at the time! (Walks away.)

-Dubya, last week

when Iraq asked him to leave, he didn't. Bush turned his back on everything he'd previously said about Iraqi sovereignty. He walked away from the negotiating table and unilaterally decided the war would go on as scheduled - until he's safely out of office.
