In addition, one of his top aides (Shiite lawmaker Hassan al-Suneid) said, "the situation looks as if it is an experiment in an American laboratory (judging) whether we succeed or fail."
He accused the U.S. military of committing human rights violations and embarrassing the Iraqi government through such tactics as building a wall around Baghdad's Sunni neighborhood of Azamiyah and launching repeated raids on suspected Shiite militiamen in the capital's slum of Sadr City.
He also said that al-Maliki has problems with the top U.S. commander, Gen. David Petraeus, who he said works along a "purely American vision."
OK, that's enough. No matter how we try to help these people, they will always see us as the crusader infidels. Let's give al-Maliki and al-Suneid their opportunity. I can't wait to see which one succeeds in losing his empty head first.
