Iraq authorities in Basra suspend cooperation with British
http://www.khaleejtimes.com/DisplayArticle.asp?xfile=da...

BASRA, Iraq - Local authorities in south Iraq said on Thursday they are halting cooperation with British forces who stormed a Basra jail to release two of their men until the pair are handed back to face Iraqi justice.

But Prime Minister Ibrahim Jaafari said on his return to Baghdad from talks in London that the incidents in Basra did not constitute an unsurmountable obstacle to good relations between the two countries.

A joint British-Iraqi probe will be held into the incidents, Jaafari said.

Highlighting a gap between the central government and the authorities in the southern port city, he said: We must use this mistake to our advantage, determine its nature and who is responsible.

1. But O'Reilly told Donahue we had to give the Iraqis a chance
to have their own govt. How does "Sex Fiend" square his views with the Iraqis now telling the Brits to "fuck off"?

2. they've started suggesting the Basra authorities are not legitimate
due to Iranian influence.

Pretty soon the only "real" Iraqis will be in the Green Zone.

4. They can't be legitimate
if they're rejecting Brit authority :sarcasm:

One day will see the last "real" Iraqi hanging from the skid of a helicopter

3. Here's a clue.....
Two British soldiers, dressed in Arab clothing, travelling in an explosives laden car, carrying weapons used by insurgency, shot Iraqi policemen.

OK sherlock, have at it.....
