I love it. Maliki is getting attacked from all sides in the US, but he finds blame in Hilary Clinton.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki lashed out on Sunday at U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton who had called for him to be replaced.
In a sign of increased tension between him and Washington, Maliki also criticized the U.S. military for killing civilians.
"There are American officials who consider Iraq as if it were one of their villages, for example Hillary Clinton and Carl Levin," Maliki told a news conference.
"This is severe interference in our domestic affairs. Carl Levin and Hillary Clinton are from the Democratic Party and they must demonstrate democracy," he said. "I ask them to come to their senses and to talk in a respectful way about Iraq."
Yeah, and Chuck Hagel and John Warner are from the republican party and they're finally demonstrating democracy. Or something. I mean they're getting off their asses.
I think Maliki ought to wake up. The dems have been sort of in opposition to Iraq, but now the repubs are joining in. He ought to be chiding the repubs for wanting to cut and run from that --
