No more extraterritoriality for military contractors in Iraq

Military contractors working in Iraq are now no longer immune to prosecution by Iraqi authorites. This should create some interesting showdowns in the near future. Imagine that: Iraq acting like a sovereign nation, not like some dominated 19th-century Asian state.

And what will happen if the Iraqi government publicly asks our regular military to get out?

Can't say for sure whether this will be a good thing all told, but on the surface I'm all for it: extraterritoriality + mercenaries is a recipe for disaster.

You should check out the Wounded Warriors Project. It's a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness for U.S. troops severely wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. Here's a link:
