Baghdad: A proposed Iraqi-American security agreement will include permanent American bases in the country, and the right for the United States to strike, from within Iraqi territory, any country it considers a threat to its national security, Gulf News has learned.
Senior Iraqi military sources have told Gulf News that the long-term controversial agreement is likely to include three major items.
Under the agreement, Iraqi security institutions such as Defence, Interior and National Security ministries, as well as armament contracts, will be under American supervision for ten years.
The agreement is also likely to give American forces permanent military bases in the country, as well as the right to move against any country considered to be a threat against world stability or acting against Iraqi or American interests.

Surprise? A permanent base in Iraq? That's a no-brainer! We stayed in Germany for 60+ years and we still have a presence there. In every conflict, there is a victor, and to the victor goes the spoils.
As far as breaking news goes, I knew this would be the situtation from day one. Anyone who didn't realize this doesn't have a good grasp on history or are just disillusioned.
instead of a peace loving nation a beacon of light for freedom
The world needs to be policed at what cost?

So get out of the way while we take care of things. By the way, the free speech you laid out in your post is courtesy of the United States.
Try your kumbaya speech in N. Korea, Iran, Syria, Venezuela....do I need to continue?
