Blue fingers

A commenter on the Washington Monthly, responding to new polls which appear to indicate that the Iraqi public wants the U.S. military to leave their country, proposed something that really resonated with me: why not let the Iraqis themselves vote on our presence there? All the rightwing crapweasels were celebrating the blue-fingered Iraqi populace in the past - why not make them put their money where their fingers are? Why shouldn't the Iraqis have more say in our activities in their country than we do? Whose country is it, anyway?
