Definition of Iraq’s “sovereignty”

Powell has taken the time and effort to explain the definitions of Iraq’s sovereignty.

Simply, any new Iraqi government due to take power on 1 July will have to surrender many of its powers to occupation forces.

“I hope they will understand … some of its [Iraq’s] sovereignty will have to be given back”

Colin Powell, US secretary of state

See? It’s simple.

The US hands over sovereignty to Iraqis on July 1st, hands are shaken, other hands are clapped, pictures are taken, champagne is poured, then the Iraqis give back the sovereignty and what’s left of their dignity to the US, and everybody goes home happy.
