Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Summit With Maliki A Total Disaster:

Well, the "summit" could have been worse. Bush could have thrown up on the Prime Minister.

Hmmm...maybe that's the reason that the PM skipped the dinner.

He read about the lunch bush threw for Hu.

If you are speaking of the Iran-Iraq talks that occurred Wednesday, Nov.29, then I believe the

"beaming, happy, relieved Maliki hugging and kissing Ahmadinejad."

was actually Iraq President Jalal Talabani, not Iraq Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki.

Not that this means your assessment is inherently incorrect, however the distinction may implicate there is a slightly different dynamic in play- possibly one where Maliki may not have much to smile about at all.

Yeah, I noticed that also. It was Talabani who went to Iran, and I just read that he is the leader of the Kurds, not the Shiates(sp?).

So, why would Talabani want Iran to invade? This would mean the end of Kurdistan as the Turks invade from the north and the Sunnis ally with them.

This really is Byzantine.

What is not Byzantine is the military situation of our troops, which was mapped out very clearly in Time Magazine. To get from the Green Zone to the airport, we would have to fight our way through dozens of well-armed militias and then prevent them from encircling the airport with surface to air missiles.

This position is worse than that of the Germans in Stalingrad.

OOPs. This is what happens when I am sick with the flu. Thanks.

I will correct.
