Iraq holds off agreeing to new UN mandate until conditions are met

Things are getting a bit dicey again between Iraq and American officials as they try to hammer out some conditions

that the Iraqis are demanding before signing a new UN Security Council Mandate.

 

Iraq's Planning Minister Ali Baban, a Sunni, also stressed that the Iraqis want jurisdiction over all US soldiers and contractors unless they are carrying out a joint military operation approved by the Iraqis. They also don't want any possibility of Americans staying in their country beyond 2011.

The sooner we get out of this mess the better. Too many good men and women have died fighting for oil!
