Nobody Could Have Aniticipated Permanent Bases In Iraq

Iraq to offer US permanent bases, long-term presence

Iraq's government, seeking protection against foreign threats and internal coups, will offer the U.S. a long-term troop presence in Iraq in return for U.S. security guarantees as part of a strategic partnership, two Iraqi officials said Monday......
Preferential treatment for U.S. investors could provide a huge windfall if Iraq can achieve enough stability to exploit its vast oil resources. Such a deal would also enable the United States to maintain leverage against Iranian expansion at a time of growing fears about Tehran's nuclear aspirations.
Permanent Bases....WTF? It's official now.
The Chimperor and Darth Cheney have won their war of conquest and turned Iraq into a permanent colonial dependency of the American Empire. Finally, the real Mission Accomplished. Meanwhile, the sheeple in the United States of Amnesia collectively yawn.

Do these fucktwits think they are being clever by not calling it a treaty, so that Congress has no say in the matter? Ooops, my bad.
