Maliki tells WSJ he doesn't want to be PM anymore.
Didn't Bush just call him the "right man" for Iraq? Well, then again, we know how "right" all of Bushes other "right men" have proven to be... :eyes:

MALIKI ON IRAQ....The Wall Street Journal interviews Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki:

WSJ: Will you accept a second term if it's offered to you?

Mr. Maliki: Impossible. I wish I could be done with it even before the end of this term. I would like to serve my people from outside the circle of senior officials, maybe through the parliament, or through working directly with the people.

Maliki goes on to say that he has a "strong hope" that there will be peace in Iraq in his lifetime, but it sure doesn't sound like he has much hope, does it? Unless this is some kind of Arab cultural thing I'm not familiar with, it sounds like we have a prime minister in Iraq who's not only ineffectual, but one who knows it perfectly well and doesn't even want the job. That's bad juju.

1. Anyone having anything to do with the chimp probably end up feeling dirty!!!
The path of destruction that he creates and leaves behind himself is staggering. His presidential library should just be one big landfill!

2. It's simple - the longer he stays as PM of IRaq, the higher
the odds are that his burnt and hacked body will end up hanging from a bridge someplace. I would want to get out as quickly as possible as well. Aruba seems nice.
