"Independent Iraq" nothing but a joke
US Vice-President Dick Cheney made an unannounced visit to Iraq on Sunday - his first since the 2003 invasion....Cheney visiting Iraq without an invitaion from the Iraqi government? Even worse, not even letting Iraqi PM know about the visit? Well, who said that the Iraqi government is not a puppet government?
...It was kept so secret that it is thought even the Iraqi prime minister was not told beforehand.
