BAGHDAD, May 25 (Reuters) - Iraqis reacted with weary scepticism on Tuesday to promises from President George W. Bush of a peaceful and independent future.

Iraq's defence minister said he wanted U.S. troops out within the year, to be replaced by newly trained Iraqi forces.

In a televised address to assure increasingly doubtful American voters that his project in Iraq was on track, Bush said U.S. forces would stay on and even be reinforced to stabilise the country after a handover of formal power to an interim government on June 30 and Iraqi elections in the new year. snip

But Iraqis, from the streets of Baghdad to the ranks of the U.S.-installed administration, made clear they wanted a final end to 14 irksome months of occupation as soon as possible.

Are the Iraqis turning on their "Great Emancipator?" :eyes:
