Few Americans are familiar with the proposed treaty. If they were, they might be shocked at its provisions, ashamed about its naked sadism. It:
grants the U.S. long-term rights to maintain over 50 military bases in their California-sized country
allows the U.S. to strike any other country from within Iraqi territory without the permission of the Iraqi government
allows the U.S. to conduct military activities in Iraq without consulting with the local government
allows U.S. forces to arrest any Iraqi without consulting with Iraqi authorities
extends to U.S. troops and contracters immunity from Iraqi law
gives U.S. forces control of Iraqi airspace below 29,000ft.
places the Iraqi Defense, Interior and National Security ministries, under American supervision for ten years
gives the U.S. responsibility for Iraqi armament contracts for ten years
