When our politicians blather about making the Iraqi government

Do this or that, stand up, sit down, sign away their national resources; I always ask, "What government?" There never HAS been a functional Iraqi government.
Iraq's largest Sunni parliamentary bloc has announced it is expanding its boycott of cabinet meetings to a full withdrawal from the government.

Salim Abdullah, a spokesman for the National Accordance Front, said it would give Nuri al-Maliki, Iraq's prime minister, a week to meet its demands before taking further action.

The only reason there is a so-called government is, because according to international law, an occupying force has certain obligations to the occupied country. If the "coalition" had not jerry rigged this government, "we" would have had to fulfill those obligations. (not that we're doing such a great job with the obligations we have now)

Ah, it's good to know there are rules for occupying forces to follow.

Do they have rules for getting rid of jackasses in the presidential office? Can we ask Canada to invade?
