al-Maliki Wants Gen Petraeus out

I appears that al-Maliki has asked George W. Bush to dump Petraeus.

Word is that he's upset that the General is arming Sunni militias to fight the Jihadists.

My guess is that the real word is that it will be too difficult for him to do ethnic cleansing in Baghdad if these people get weapons.

SCIRI, al-Maliki's base tortured Iraqi prisoners during the Iran-Iraq war. His security forces have been murdering and ethnically cleansing Sunnis.

The last thing he wants is something that gets in the way of this.

On the bright side, if he succeeds, I think that it will flip a number of Republicans who value their seats more than they fear Karl Rove, so maybe it will get us out.
