Hey, please read it for more:

BERLIN (Reuters) – Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki told a German magazine he supported prospective U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's proposal that U.S. troops should leave Iraq within 16 months.

In an interview with Der Spiegel released on Saturday, Maliki said he wanted U.S. troops to withdraw from Iraq as soon as possible.

"U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama talks about 16 months. That, we think, would be the right timeframe for a withdrawal, with the possibility of slight changes."

It is the first time he has backed the withdrawal timetable put forward by Obama, who is visiting Afghanistan and us set to go to Iraq as part of a tour of Europe and the Middle East.

Isn't it amazing that Maliki is supporting Obama! Well to me it makes sense he wants to align himself with who most people believe will be the NEXT President of the United States.
I am just waiting to see if the GOP will be able to fix this election!
After all the majority of voting machines are furnished by Diebold a Bush Crony and staunch Republican!
We shall see!
