It’s military coup time in the OK corral!

No, no, not in the United States -- the US military is too disciplined to do that, even if the temptation might be there -- but of our puppet government in Iraq. Why? It appears that they're getting a bit tired of the open-ended US occupation, and want the American Imperium to publish a timetable for GTFOODing. And to show they're serious about this, they think that the resistance "had a ``legitimate right'' of resistance".

I can't see that this will fly very well with the B*sh Junta's refusal to consider any sort of timetable because cutting and running™ would be unmanly. So what's the next best thing to do when your puppet government starts thinking it's an independent entity? Replace it with a different one!
