"Iraq is for the Iraqis only"

iraqforiraqis.jpg As the news breaks about President Bush’s veto of the Congressional Bill which attempted to link war funding with a timetable for U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq, BBC News posted a story about the President’s comments, including his feeling that the US “surge” of troops needs more time to work. Posted in the article was the following picture with the caption “President Bush has poured extra troops into Baghdad” below it.  The English translation of the Arabic writing on the wall behind the armed troop in the picture reads “Iraq is for the Iraqis only.” The irony speaks for itself.
