The Iraqi parliament is debating a security agreement to keep US troops in Iraq past the end of this year. If they don't agree to the security pact, then we have to get out.

Why does the Iraqi parliament have to agree, but our own Congress does not even have a say in it? No debate, no vote, not even a nonbinding resolution. I don't understand.


  1. This reminds me of my sister telling me I had to get out of her room.

  2. Mr Walker, or may I call you Ridge?

    Interesting analogy. I didn't think of it in quite those terms.

    It is their country and while we should have their permission to be there, we don't need their permission to leave -- kind of like you and your sister.

    Hopefully you were only lobbing verbal grenades at each other.
