The Iraqi Prime Minister wants to keep his job. The Bush administration wants him gone. He says he's staying. He should probably keep in mind what Bush did to the last leader of Iraq. Bush only has so much respect for sovereignty, especially when his poll numbers are tanking:
Facing growing pressure from the Bush administration for him to step down, Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari of Iraq vigorously asserted his right to stay in office today and warned the Americans against undue interference in Iraq's political process.It's actually almost quaint. The Iraqi PM actually thought Bush really meant that he wanted the Iraqi people to pick their own leaders.
