WASHINGTON, Dec 15 (Reuters) - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on Friday told
U.S. President George W. Bush he aimed to improve security in Baghdad by targeting
"all sources of violence", including insurgents and militias, a White House
spokesman said.

Bush and Maliki, who took office seven months ago as head of Iraq's Shi'ite-led
coalition government, spoke for 30 minutes on Friday afternoon via a secure video
link, said White House National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe.

During the conversation, Maliki outlined plans for a national conference on Saturday
in Baghdad that is designed to halt mounting sectarian violence that has raised fears
of civil war, Johndroe said in a brief statement.

The conference will bring together Kurdish, Shi'ite Muslim and Sunni Arab politicians
from Baghdad's ruling coalition, and figures from Saddam Hussein's former Baath
party, who have lived abroad since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003.

1. Sure by using our troops.
I heard Chalabi mentioned in the news the other day. Bush is going full circle.
