"The U.S. ambassador to Baghdad said on Tuesday Iraq had made "extremely disappointing" progress towards reconciling its warring sects, while President George W. Bush said there was "a certain level of frustration with the leadership in general."
Responding to a question about U.S. criticism, Maliki said: "The Iraqi government was elected by the Iraqi people and nobody (has the right to) put timetables ... on it," referring to conditions set by Washington for his government to achieve political reconciliation among Iraqi groups."
It has been suggested to me that the Iraqi's are deliberately stalling because they know the US wants their oil. They want the US to get fed up and pull out. If this is true, I kind of don't blame them.
This is too much for me. I need to go to the beauty parlor.
