Well said!

“Iraq today is sovereign and independent,” 

“With the execution of the troop pullout, our relations with the United States have entered a new stage between two equal, sovereign countries

This is according to Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on a day when the American forces will apparently withdraw from Iraq, leaving behind only 50,000 “formidable and heavily-armed force”
And Joe Biden chimes in: “We’ll be just fine, they’ll be just fine,” 
Ah, the politics of face-saving and obfuscation…well done!
