Link to story below + My precis and some observations .
The Iraqi Govt is (not unsurprisingly) incensed over the acquittal of the 5 Blackwater security guards , for the alleged murder of 14 Iraqi civilians
, all of whom are ex US Military .
The gist is they dont care about legal niceities or precedure and just want to see a punishment here .
They come out with out and out threats regarding US/Iraq relations if this does not happen .
Given the massive US presence still in Iraq i can see this causing some real problems .
I strongly suspect they will get the appeal they are looking for , and im betting they see another acquittal too .
Thats when its really going to kick off .
