“Big Fat NO” to Permanent U.S. Bases in Iraq

A post on Think Progress noted a CNN story today:

The message was “delivered directly to Vice President Dick Cheney at the White House” by Iraqi National Security Adviser Mowaffak Al-Rubaie, who told CNN that Iraqis say, “No, big fat no, N-O for the bases in Iraq.”

Al-Rubaie stated “we believe that is in direct encroachment to our sovereignty, and we don’t need it.”

The premise of the war in Iraq was of course to “establish democracy” after ousting Hussein, yet the neocon document “Rebuilding America’s Defenses,” written before 911, clearly stated the Pentagon’s intention to establish permanent bases in the region. Don’t expect the comments by one Iraqi leader today to change the planned course of the U.S. military industrial complex though.
