Iraqi PM says ready to tackle militias

Oh, you're ready now?

Iraq's prime minister pledged on Wednesday to crack down on illegal militias after coming under pressure from Washington to curb violence, but he insisted the government was not working to deadlines imposed from outside.

I'll admit it must be hard to offer a timeline in curbing violence. Shit, we here in America have been at it for a long, long time and violence just seems to get worse. I'm not comparing the violence in America to the violence in Iraq mainly because the people here in the US are way too lazy to ever cause that much chaos. For most of us here, we need the stability, however little it truly is, because we can't handle chaos. Unless it's on TV.

In a sign of challenges Iraqi leaders face in achieving "benchmarks" agreed with an impatient U.S. administration before mid-term elections next month, Nuri al-Maliki was the object of fresh anger after an overnight raid by U.S. and Iraqi forces killed at least four people in a Shi'ite stronghold in Baghdad.

I'm interested to see exactly how the American people will vote with this upcoming election. American votes are tricky to perdict. Most of the sensible people stay home on election day simply because they are smart enough to realize choosing between cow shit and horse shit is pointless. In the end, it's all shit.
