Iraq's parliament has chosen Kurdish leader Jalal Talabani as the country's new president after the first elections since the fall of Saddam Hussein.

Outgoing President Ghazi Yawer, a Sunni Arab, and current Finance Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, a Shia, have been named as his deputies

Well after weeks of wrangling the political process is starting to take hold.
Dosnt the prime minster of Iraq hold the power?
Iraq now leaps into an uncertain future.
Will the new government ask the US to leave?
Some backers of the war are hoping this will happen so the US can exsit Iraq with min political fallout. However Im sure the new Iraqi government wont be that dumb.

If Iraqs sercuity forces dont improve 300% then the whole country will fall apart at the seam and the blame will lie at the feet of the US for bungling post war Iraq and training local sercuity forces to meet political goals rather then the sercuity of Iraq. We could see another Vietnam style disater.
