OBAMA AND IRAQ
While everyone is busy sipping Obama Kool-Aid, 2009 is going to be quite critical for Iraq.
This year, Iraqis will hold as many as 10 elections. Elections will be held on topics as simple as provincial elections to complicated ones like the security agreement with the US, and referendums on Kirkut and Basrah autonomy.
Aside from the drawing-down of forces, what have we heard from the Obama team?
Will Bidden still push for a breakup of Iraqi regions like he did in the Senate?
What will the Obama Administration do in the event sectarian violence erupts on the eve of elections?
How committed is Obam to Iraqi democracy? Is he committed at all??
