US spent Trillion US $ just to overthrow Saddam

Now Iraq is free to join with Iran. Already proven by Iraq's refusal
to sanction Syria for its crimes against humanity.

Theories that US invaded Iraq just to steal its petroleum resources is
therefore completely false.

By insisting on a democracy instead of dictatorships unlike other
regions in the gulf states, US is playing with fire with its selfish
interests, but has managed to hold a high ground on morality and
justice for humanity.

Unfortunately US has not shown a good example for Iraqi administrators
to follow by ignoring human rights issues. Democracy and justice
cannot survive when human rights are ignored. It has been proven in
many nations but unfortunately US is abandoning human rights even for
its own citizens. Sooner or later, US will no longer be democratic and
respectful of justice, and it will also end the economic might of the
most wealthy nation on earth and subsequently its military might.

BAGHDAD (AP) – Iraq's prime minister said Saturday that his security
forces are ready to protect the country once the American military
withdraws by the end of this year, and played down any suggestion that
Iraq would become a follower of Iran.

Nouri al-Maliki told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview
Saturday that he has "no concerns whatsoever" about security after all
American troops withdraw by Jan. 1. Iraqi security forces have proven
themselves capable and able to protect their own country, he said.

"Nothing has changed with the withdrawal of the American forces from
Iraq on the security level because basically it has been in our
hands," he said.

The prime minister said Iraq has been largely responsible for security
ever since the American military pulled out of the cities in 2008 and
withdrew to bases outside the cities, leaving the Iraqi military
largely responsible for their own internal security.

He said he was not worried about the type of sectarian warfare that
almost destroyed Iraq in the years following the 2003 U.S.-led

"I assure the world that the Iraqi forces and the general situation in
the country hasn't changed and will not change," the prime minister

The prime minister also dismissed fears that Iraq would fall under
neighboring Iran's sphere of influence, once the American military
leaves Iraq. Some U.S. officials have suggested that Iranian influence
in Iraq would inevitably grow once American troops depart.

Both countries have Shiite majorities and are dominated by Shiite
political groups. Many Iraqi politicians spent time in exile in Iran
under Saddam Hussein's repressive regime.

Al-Maliki vowed that Iraq will chart its own policies in the future
that conform to Iraqi national interests.

"Iraq is not a follower of any country," al-Maliki said. He pointed
out several areas in which Iraq had acted against Iran's desires,
including the signing of the security agreement in 2008 that required
all U.S. forces to leave Iraq by the end of this year. Iran had been
pushing for all American troops to be out of the country even sooner.

"Through our policies, Iraq was not and will not be a follower of
another country's policies," he said.
