Maliki `I'm not America's man'

I can hardly believe the gall of this ungrateful little you-know-what.

Iraq's Shiite PM,in an effort to reclaim his jihadi street cred apparently made the comments during a meeting with US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad.

On Friday, Maliki and Khalilzad issued a rare joint statement emphasising the need to work together, yadda yadda.

But during the meeting, Mr Maliki reportedly laid this little gem on US representative Khalilzad.

"I am elected by a people and a parliament. Security should be co-ordinated with me. Decisions should not be unilateral," senior aide Hassan al-Suneid quoted him as saying.

That's a direct reference to the raids the US forces made on Maliki's pals in Sadr City to help rid th ecountry of Iran armed and backed Shiite militias lik eMoqata al-Sadr's Mahdi Army.

"I am a friend of the United States, but I am not America's man in Iraq."

"I affirm that this government represents the will of the people and no one has the right to impose a timetable on it," Mr Maliki said at a news conference on Wednesday.

Wrongo, Maliki. You would still be cuddled up with your pals the mullahs in Iran if we hadn't liberated Iraq, and you would still be an exile from your own country. We're paying the freight,in blood and in treasure and you owe it to us and to your people to cooperate with us, regardless of how you feel about your Iranian pals. Just because the Bush Administration was silly enough to allow Iranian Shiite stoodges like you to run in the election shouldn't mean that you can continue to work both sides of the street.

Miserable little double dealing ingrate.
