This one is political. But I'm not going to bash. I'm simply going to ask.
1. We've repeatedly been told that post-Saddam Iraq is now a sovereign nation — thanks, in large part, to our intervention. The term "the sovereign nation of Iraq" has been uttered frequently by people in this Administration, up to the very top. Not just sovereignty, but "full sovereignty."
2. It's my understanding that a sovereign nation has the right to determine whether or not another nation occupies it.
3. It is my understanding that the sovereign government of Iraq would like the United States to make a timetable to remove its troops.
4. We say no, the decision to withdraw will be conditions-based.
There seems to be an inconsistency. Am I missing something?
