Iraqi Sovereignty

24 Sep

The issue of Blackwater’s action in Iraq raises a significant issue over who has sovereignty of Iraq.

If the Iraqi’s cancel Blackwaters licence to conduct business in Iraq, who is going to protect the US administraion officials and other foreign workers in Iraq?

If the US overrules the Iraqi government and says that Blackwater stays, then it proves the point that the Iraqi government does not really have control over their own country.

This is a true test for Al-Maliki – is he a puppet or is he his own man?
